Microsemi Corp. has updated its Libero SoC version 11.4 comprehensive design software used for the development of the latest generation of Microsemi's FPGA products. The latest release promises to improve design flow runtime by up to 35 per cent for its SmartFusion2 SoC FPGAs and IGLOO2 FPGAs.

The design software claims to offer greater design efficiency with an improved SmartDesign graphical design canvas along with improved text editor, design reporting and constraints editor capabilities. The improved SERDES wizards have clocking options that allow for increased flexibility in mixing serial data rates. These design efficiencies reduce design creation complexity for Microsemi's customers that results in a faster time-to-market for FPGA based designs, noted Microchip.

Microsemi FPGAs are positioned competitively in mainstream applications for communication, industrial, aerospace and defence, added the company.

A significant addition to the latest version of Libero SoC v11.4 software is full design flow support for the Linux open source operating system. The easy-to-use FlashPro Express tool that comes bundled with the software enables device programming and debugging capabilities for the Linux operating system. These capabilities provide additional efficiencies for the system architects and designers by allowing them to stay in the same development environment throughout the entire design flow.

The Libero SoC v11.4 software toolset is available for download from Microsemi's website.
