Soon, a new open source iCE40 FPGA development board in Teensy format will be released through the Crowd Supply website, providing a board supported by the following FPGA design tools: Yosys, nextpnr, IceStorm, Icestudio, nMigen and Litex. Unfortunately, no pricing or global availability information has been released yet, but as soon as information becomes available we will keep you updated as always.
“The iCEBreaker-Bitsy FPGA adds the powerful flexibility of an FPGA to your next project in a convenient Teensy format. It works out of the box with the latest open source FPGA development tools and easily integrates into a wide variety of projects.
ICEBreaker-bitsy FPGA Development Board Specifications
- ICE40UP5k FPGA
- 5280 logic cells (4-LUT + Carry + FF)
- 128KB (16KB) dual port block RAM
- 1MB (128KB) single port RAM
- PLL, two hard IP SPI and two I2C
- Two internal oscillators (10 kHz and 48 MHz) (for simple designs)
- 8 DSP (16 × 16 multiplication + 32-bit accumulation) (for digital signal processing)
- 3x 24 mA reader and 3x hard PWM IP (for the on-board RGB LED)
- 128MB (16MB) QSPI-DDR compatible flash
- Enables hardware designs that access flash; by choosing a Quad SPI Double Data Rate flash, designs can run at very high speeds.
- QSPI Pseudo SRAM 64 MB (8 MB)
- Provides additional RAM for more memory intensive designs.
- Lots of I / O capable pins
- Integrated RGB LED for status indication
- Two discrete integrated LEDs
- Fully controlled USB-C interface from FPGA (allows implementation of arbitrary low and full speed USB devices)
- An on-board push button
- 24 pins on the edge pads, compatible with model kits, 24 pin IC sockets and SMD soldering
- Integrated DFU bootloader for easy programming
- Supported natively by the dfu-util tool
- Can be toggled to bootloader mode from user bitstream via button press or DFU stub.
The iCEBreaker-Bitsy FPGA Development Board is designed to be compatible with popular Teensy microcontroller boards. This gives you access to a library of carrier boards and extensions that can be used for prototyping, gateware and firmware development. With the Teensy to Feather Adapter Card, you can also access the ever-evolving Adafruit Feather ecosystem.
