CAMBRIDGE, UK Lattice Semiconductor Corporation will collaborate with Beyond Semiconductor in the development of compiler tools for Lattice's soft processors. The collaboration will include updates and performance improvements for its embedded processor IP compilers and development tools.
The LatticeMico8 embedded microcontroller and LatticeMico32 embedded microprocessor are optimized for implementation in the manufacturer's FPGAs and PLDs.
These embedded processors are provided free of charge through an open source intellectual property (IP) core license that provides customers access to the HDL for the IP, as well as full architecture independence and portability to migrate from an FPGA to ASIC platform.
Beyond Semiconductor has created a comprehensive software development flow that leverages its experience building highly optimized compilers for a variety of embedded processors.
The company's comprehensive product offering includes 32-bit embedded RISC/DSP processors, advanced software development tools, peripheral cores and complete reference platforms that enable Licensees to begin product development quickly.
