iCE40 UltraPlus devices claim to be the smallest FPGAs available with enhanced memory and DSPs to enable always on, distributed processing. The Lattice Radiant software is now available for download, free of charge.

Lattice Radiant software provides a robust design environment and significantly improves productivity and user experience for designing with iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs. The IP ecosystem infrastructure enriches IP core support for the iCE40 UltraPlus device family for a broad range of applications including IoT sensor bridging, 8:1 microphone aggregation, and face detection.

The Lattice Radiant software features predictable design convergence with unified design database, design constraint flow and timing analysis. Ease-of-use is ensured through an updated GUI that provides simple, intuitive and efficient user operations with a modern look and feel; a new design constraint editor that simplifies both logical and physical design constraint editing; new warning messaging console and message filtering functions; and physical to logical design implementation cross-probing. The software also offers industry standard IEEE 1735 encryption support for IP protection.
