ispLEVER Classic is the design environment for Lattice CPLDs and mature programmable products. It can be used to take a Lattice device design completely through the design process, from concept to device JEDEC or Bitstream programming file output. Details about the programmable logic families supported with ispLEVER Classic are below.
The current version is ispLEVER Classic 1.6, released on August 13th, 2012.
ispLEVER Classic download is supported on the Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP or Windows 2000 operating systems.
To design with other Lattice FPGA families, download the Lattice Diamond software. You can install and run Lattice Diamond and ispLEVER Classic concurrently.
Follow the three steps below to pick Download, Install, and License ispLEVER Classic.
ispLEVER Classic consists of the modules as listed below; The ispLEVER Classic 1.6 Base Module installation (that now includes Synplify Synthesis module and Aldec Active-HDL Lattice Edition for simulation) and the ispLEVER Classic 1.6 FPGA Module installation.
