Active-HDL 10.3 - Lattice edition is distributed with Lattice Semiconductor's Diamond 3.9 software.
Diamond 3.9 has a Linux version too, but the Linux version seems to not contain the Active-HDL.
This version of Active-HDL is free to use, but it requires a license. The license can be required at the Lattice Semiconductors web site.
Download and licensing requires a registration.
the only problem I found is licensing. Without a proper license file, the program crashes during startup.
1) register by lattice
2) download diamond
3) require a license (you have to submit the MAC of your ethernet card)
4) install diamond
5) forget of diamond and use the llinux version. diamond under wine sometimes crashes
6) copy the license file to c:\lscc\diamond\3.9_x64\license\license.dat
7) start Active-HDL with the command:
the program starts, and it seems to work correctly.
I created and simulated a simple verilog module, and I was able to display results.
What does not
starting Active-HDL from diamond
What was not tested
a lot. The program is huge. A deep testing requires months.
