@DreamsToReality: You can't just right click and download like you did for the schematic files. To download the design files, you need to click on the entry first and it will take you to a login page where you sign a license agreement.
??? I've downloaded pico examples using both chrome and firefox with the same result. Please note that I do get the schematics and orcad file with no problem, just not the design examples. Could you repost them elsewhere? They always show up as 1K null files.
thank you for a great lecture. I had a problem with licensing - you have to request a license.dat file and for that a NIC info from your PC is needed - type ipconfig/all in command prompt and copy XX-XX-XX-XX data. Maybe will help someone. I am all set to do homewoark now.;)
I think if you have ever installed certain FTDI USB-Serial Drivers in the past, such as for Arduino (Arduino.cc), a usable driver will be on your computer and found automatically by Windows for the Pico board.
??: Has anyone tried working through the "Lattice Diamond Tutorial" from the Start Page in the Lattice Diamond program? On page 8, Figure 4, you are supposed to setup the project to run with the LatticeECP3 family and the device as LFE3-35EA. However, the LatticeECP3 family is not available in my project wizard. I was just wondering if anyone new of a workaround...
Another good one - I should complete download of Diamond Software tonight. It is a time hog. I bought the EV Board this morning from Lattice Mouser Distributor, so will play off this seminar to complete my handson requirement beyond this week
??? I've downloaded the examples from the pico page but they appear to be all null. I have renamed them as zip files but they are only 1K in size. The schematic and the orcad dsn file come out OK but they are the only 2 I can get. Help. In the worst case, could you repost them elsewhere
If you don't see the audio bar at the top of the screen, please refresh your browser. It may take a couple tries. When you see the audio bar, hit the play button. If you experience audio interruptions and are using IE, try using FF or Chrome as your browser. Many people experience issues with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. And finally, some companies block live audio streams, so if that is the case for your company, the class will be archived on this page immediately following the class and you can listen then. People don't experience any issues with the audio for the archived version.

You are eligible to earn IEEE Professional Development Hours by attending these courses and participating in the chat function. Additionally, we are no longer using the points system, offering "graduation", or giving grades. The IEEE hours are taking the place of that. There are some important things for you to know about earning the hours. The most important ones are that you need to attend these courses live, you need to attend a minimum of two of them per semester, you need to fill out a course evaluation form within 2 weeks of the end of the class, you need to attend 4 out of the 5 classes per course, and you need to participate in the chat function every day you attend. Please click on the link at the top of this page that says "How do I earn IEEE professional development hours" to read all of these important details and more.

If you install Diamond in a User Specified directory, it may still look for the License file in the Default location: "C:\flexlm". You should start by putting a copy of the license.dat file there. Then you may be able to run the program and change where Diamond should find the file in the future from inside the program in Help - License Debug. I just left mine in C:\flexlm.
The streaming audio player will appear at the top of this web page when the show starts at 2 PM Eastern time today. When you see it, click on the play button to start the audio. Note however, that some companies block live audio streams. If when the show starts, the audio bar doesn't appear or you don't hear any audio, try refreshing your browser. If that doesn't work, try using Firefox or Google Chrome as your browser. Some users experience audio interruptions with IE. Also, make sure your flash player is updated with the current version. If that doesn't work, the class will be archived immediately following our live taping. You shouldn't experience any problems with the audio when listening on-demand.
Thanks Warren. It works. For any others who want to know, I went to the website you specified and clicked on Support at the bottom of the page. I clicked on Request License. You will need to provide your 12-digit MAC address. You can get this by going into a Command Prompt and entering ipconfig /all. You'll see the address next to Physical Address. Check your email for the license.dat file and put that in the \license directory where the Lattice Diamond is installed. Voila!
Has anyone been able to find the USB driver for the Pico kit? The web site listed in the quick-start has lots of example code and documentation, but nothing that identifies as a USB driver. Not sure where to look next.
@78RPM: You need to request the license file. They will send it via email and you load it into the license file directory. The file is locked to your computer, so follow the instructions to find the info they need to lock it.
From the Diamond page select the Licensing tab. That will explain the process to you.
So I downloaded the software, installed it and tried to launch it. I get a message "LM_Licence_File is not set. Please verify and verify that the environment variable contains the license path." Where do I go from here? I'm on Windows 8.1.

The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
