Fulfillment Done

Hey Everyone!

YEY, we have arrived at the end of the Campaign and Pre-Order fulfillment! It took a while but we are finally here!

Thank you all for your support and patience! This whole project would not have been possible without your passion for open-source FPGA! :)

iCEBreaker Inventory & Purchase Options

Now that all the campaign pledges and pre-orders are fulfilled we finally have iCEBreakers, Pmods and LED Panels in the 1BitSquared store. Of course CrowdSupply will also continue selling the iCEBreaker related products going forward.

We are still working on creating a big enough inventory buffer so that there are no back order situations. That will probably still take a while to stabilize and level out, but we are actively working on that.

Glasgow - Interface Explorer

Of course we are not resting on our laurels and are immediately diving into the next project. This time it is the Glasgow Interface Explorer, an open-source FPGA based USB to "anything" interface tool.

Check out the pre-launch page and subscribe to be notified as soon as the Glasgow campaign launches. And check out the Glasgow GitHub page too for more information about the project.


Piotr will be at Chaos Communication Congress in December so make sure to find him and say hello! :)

We are planning to run some FPGA workshops at 36C3 like we did last year, but it is not yet set in stone. So make sure to follow Piotr on Twitter so you don’t miss out. :)

That would be it for this update. Again, thank you all for your support and we hope you have fun with your iCEBreakers. Make sure to let us know on Twitter or in the icebreaker channel on Discord what you made with it!

Product Choices



Your own iCEBreaker FPGA development board and headers. Learn how to design digital logic, experiment with your own CPU core design, and build your next innovative project.


iCEBreaker DIP Switch Pmod

Single Pmod is ideal for simple exercises as well as an 8 bit input for your FPGA project. Required for the WTFpga workshop.


iCEBreaker 7-Segment Pmod

Single Pmod is ideal for simple exercises as well as number indicators for your FPGA project. One is required for WTFpga workshop and you will need two for the iCEBreaker workshop.


iCEBreaker 12-Bit DVI Pmod

Dual Pmod is ideal to add digital video output to your FPGA project. It is as easy to use as an analog VGA output without the need for high speed differential signals and encoding.


iCEBreaker LED Panel Driver Pmod

Dual Pmod to interface your FPGA project with a HUB75E interface RGB LED Matrix. By default configured for 3.3V signaling but can be switched to 5V signal shifting for those LED Panels that need it.


RGB LED Panel P2 64x64 (ICN2037 Shift Registers)

A tested and documented RGB LED Matrix with easy to use ICN2037 shift registers.
