PAC-Designer Design Software

Powerful productivity – Design Tools for Power and Clock Management

A perfect fit – PAC-Designer is custom tailored for designing with Power Manager and Platform Manager devices.

Get going, get done – PAC-Designer is the complete implementation and verification solution for Power Manager and Platform Manager devices.

Works well with others – Works seamlessly with Lattice Diamond software to let you easily develop innovative mixed signal solutions.

Overview

Lattice sets the industry standard for integrated power, platform and clock management devices, and PAC-Designer design software is the key that unlocks the potential of these solutions for your design.

Move to a More Productive Environment

  • Fully integrated design and simulation environment for Platform Manager, Power Manager II, and ispClock devices
  • High level logic design mechanism
  • Easy-to-use GUI
  • For Platform Manager, PAC-Designer works in conjunction with ispLEVER to form a complete CPLD/FPGA design environment

Trust, but Verify

  • Export VHDL or Verilog HDL models to popular 3rd party HDL simulators
  • Create your power management stimulus graphically
  • Digital waveform simulation for easy design verification
  • Simulate power supply rate

Painless Programming

  • Use Diamond Programmer (included in Lattice Diamond) to download your designs to silicon for Platform Manager
  • For products other than Platform Manager, PAC-Designer can be used directly to program Platform Manager, Power Manager II and ispClock devices
