Have you checked for licensing issues?

Maybe I don't know how but I haven't noticed anything about licensing. I can view the EULA (from 2012 - not so old) and nothing complains about licensing.

I don't know for sure, but Synplicity should need a license to run. I
seem to recall when my license expires I get an exit error of 2. Check
the Lattice web site to see what they say about licensing this tool.


I just tried something else - instead of trying to compile VHDL, for testing purposes I entered a simple schematic of two gates and went that route. Seems that I can get through the process up to a JEDEC file. So it hopefully means that Synplify is properly licensed. Unless I miss something here.

I'll have a look anyway.

How does schematic work? Do they produce an EDIF file from that which
Synplicity processes?

Tried and re-licenced the software - the licence.dat contains all the packages, including Syn stuff. So this shouldn't (at least theoretically) be the cause.

How does schematic work?


To be frank - I've got no idea. But the flow presented by the software seem different.

I can't find any .EDI file in the project directory so either they don't or they delete it after use. Probably the former. Yet my VHDL project didn't create any either - due to the error..

If the tool has a button for firing up the simulator without doing a
compile (the Diamond and iCE40 tools do) see if you can bring up the
GUI. If you can, the license is good.


The closest I can think of are the menu entries named "Waveform editor" and "Waveform viewer". Both pop up normally.

Sorry, I should have said "synthesis", not simulator. They are separate
with separate licenses. All the tools I use let you fire up the
synthesis software separate from the Lattice GUI.
