Synopsys and Lattice Semiconductor Extend Multi-Year OEM Agreement for FPGA Design Software

Synopsys Synplify Pro Software Delivers Superior Logic Synthesis Results for Users of Lattice Semiconductor Programmable Logic Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., June 27, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —


  • Multi-year contract extension provides Lattice Semiconductor users with access to Synopsys' Synplify Pro synthesis tool
  • Optimized for Lattice architecture to achieve the highest quality of results in timing, area and runtime, helping customers get their smart and connected devices to market faster
  • Integration with Lattice Diamond software provides a unified design flow for Lattice FPGA implementation

Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced a multi-year extension of its OEM agreement with Lattice Semiconductor Corporation for Synopsys' Synplify Pro® FPGA synthesis tools. With this agreement, Synopsys continues to be the exclusive provider of logic synthesis technology optimized for the highest quality of results, area and runtime for designers targeting Lattice Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs).

"The extension of our long-standing relationship with Synopsys gives our customers continued access to a complete, easy-to-use synthesis design flow to implement and validate the rigorous timing and area requirements of next-generation designs," said Choon-Hoe Yeoh, senior director, software quality and strategic partnership at Lattice Semiconductor. "Synopsys' Synplify Pro synthesis software is optimized for the advanced architectural features of Lattice's programmable logic devices, offering designers the customizable and flexible solutions they need to quickly innovate and develop differentiated products for a variety of consumer, communications, industrial, computing and automotive applications."

Synplify Pro enables designers to quickly explore tradeoffs in their FPGA design to meet timing goals and lower overall product cost, while minimizing the FPGA resources required for their design. For Lattice devices, the Synplify Pro software enables designers to achieve up to 3X faster runtime with multiprocessing and meet timing in the smallest area, in addition to providing comprehensive language support. The integration of Synplify Pro into the Lattice Diamond® software environment provides a full design flow that allows designers to deliver differentiated products to market quickly.

"FPGA designs require sophisticated synthesis tools that deliver the best timing results while minimizing logic for smaller, lower-power devices," said John Koeter, vice president of marketing for IP and Prototyping at Synopsys. "By extending our OEM collaboration with Lattice, we continue to provide designers with high-quality FPGA synthesis software needed to develop optimized, cost-effective FPGA designs."


Synplify Pro is integrated with the Lattice Diamond and ispLEVER® design software families and is available now directly from Lattice Semiconductor. For more information on the complete design software environment for Lattice FPGAs, please visit:
