Lattice Semiconductor has released Lattice Propel, an integrated FPGA hardware and software design environment that allows engineers to develop applications from scratch using a library of IP and peripherals. Designed for designers of all skill levels, the Propel framework provides a GUI so that users can drag and drop IP blocks then allow the tool to automatically optimize the design layout. It also supports script-level editing for more granular control and updating existing designs.
To support both hardware and software development in a single solution that will accelerate time to market, Propel consists of two components: Propel Builder and Propel SDK.
Propel Builder is the IP integration environment that includes GUI and command-line tools. It provides access to an IP server that contains eight processor and peripheral IP cores, including an RV32I-compliant RISC-V core. All cores are compatible with the AMBA interconnect specification.
Propel SDK includes industry-standard software development tools, libraries, and board support packages for application build, compile, and debug.
The Propel design environment is available now for Lattice customers. More information, including a 10-minute “Hello, World!” demo, is available at https://www.latticesemi.com/propel.
