The Final Countdown

Hey Everyone!

We are in the last few hours of the campaign. We are ecstatic to see how far we have come, and we are looking forward to starting production!

If you know someone who would want to get their iCEBreaker as part of the campaign production run, we would be very grateful if you reminded them before the time runs out.

Some of you asked us what will happen after the campaign is over. You will be able to pre-order the iCEBreaker through Crowd Supply and eventually through 1BitSquared. We are not planning to change the pricing on the tiers, but there will be a time delay between the campaign fulfillment and pre-order fulfillment. So backing the campaign now will definitely get the iCEBreaker into your hands earlier than those who decide to wait. ;-)

To everyone who already backed the project. Thank you so much! We are blown away by the support and interest. We can’t wait to get the iCEBreakers out to you.

In the next update we will let you know what our plans are regarding documentation, community resources and production. As Piotr is finally back at the 1BitSquared HQ he will keep you up to date with the production progress through his @esden twitter account. We will be posting campaign updates every now and then with a summary of what is happening in production. We are in this together! Thank you for joining this journey with us, and see you on the other side!!!

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.
