Libero Design Software
|Libero SoC PolarFire|
Libero SoC should be used for designing with Microsemi IGLOO2, SmartFusion2, SmartFusion, IGLOO, ProASIC3 and Fusion families. Libero Design Software integrates industry leading synthesis, debug and DSP support from Synopsys, and simulation from Mentor Graphics with power analysis, timing analysis and push button design flow.
Libero IDE should be used for designing with Microsemi antifuse and legacy flash FPGAs. Libero Design Software integrates industry leading synthesis, debug and DSP support from Synopsys, and simulation from Mentor Graphics with power analysis, timing analysis and push button design flow.
There are four types of libero licenses are available. Libero Gold Free licenses covers the majority of mainstream FPGAs, while Libero Platinum supports the high end and advanced feature devices.
|Power Estimators and Calculators||
Leverage our Excel based power calculator to evaluate power for your design without running through the full design flow. SmartPower can also provide design specific power analysis for your design implementation within Libero.
Generic IBIS Models are available for signal integrity simulations. Design specific files can also be exported from your design implementation in Libero.
Generic BSDL Models are available for boundary scan testing. Design specific files can also be exported from your design implementation in Libero.
