San Jose, CA and Guangzhou, China, Feb. 22, 2019 - GOWIN Semiconductor Corp., the world’sleadinginnovator of programmable logicdevices, announces the release of GOWIN’s new EDA tool, Gowin® EDA 1.9. With the release of this new toolchain, GOWIN willenableenhancedfeatures and performance capabilities on theircurrent and future FPGA productfamilies.

EDA toolchains are becomingincreasinglycomplex as FPGA applications are integrating more functions for the cloud and endpointmarkets. To enablethiscomplexity change, the new toolchainwillincludeGowinSynthesis, an enhanced front end logicsynthesistooldesigned and developed by the GOWIN EDA software team. It’s a significantmilestone for GOWIN as the total toolchainisnowcompletelydesigned in-house, allowing for quick qualityimprovements as well as product updates for customers time to marketrequirements. WhileGOWIN’sFPGA’swillbe more optimized for IP, performance, and utilizationusing the new Gowin® EDA 1.9 toolchain, the toolchainwilladditionally support the currentSynopsysSynplify Pro synthesistoolalreadyintegrated.

"The development of the new synthesistoolis a major step for GOWIN,” said Alan Liu, Director of Software Development, GOWIN Semiconductor. “Wecannowmaketooladjustments in real-time, enhancing the userexperience.”

GOWIN EDA (Gowin® EDA) is an easy-to-useintegrated design environment, providingdesignengineerswith a one-stop solution. The complete GUI basedenvironmentcovers FPGA design entry, code synthesis, place & route, bitstreamgeneration, download, and online debugging of GOWIN FPGA’s on customer’sboards. The new toolchainalsoincorporates the followingupdated IP blocks:


  • • CAN2.0 & CAN-FD IP
  • • High-Speed MIPI Interface (1:8 & 1:16 Gear Box)
  • • Ethernet 10/100/1000Mhz MAC Controller & Interface to MII/RMII/GMII

Memory Controller:

  • • pSRAM Controller

IP Microprocessor:

  • • Configurable RISC-V (5-Stage-Pipeline) CPU & System IP


  • • FIR
  • • NLMS Filter
  • • FDAF - Frequency Domain Adaptive Filter
  • • Cross-Correlation
