iCEBreaker FPGA

The first open source iCE40 FPGA development board designed for teachers and students

The iCEBreaker FPGA campaign is now live

The idea for the iCEBreaker FPGA development board was originally written down as a design requirement document by Clifford Wolf of Yosys/icestorm open source FPGA development tool fame. After discussing the project with Clifford at the Chaos Communication Congress in December 2017, Piotr Esden-Tempski of 1BitSquared took on the project in January 2018. Since the first draft of the design created by Piotr at Clifford’s apartment in Vienna, the iCEBreaker has had five hardware revisions, a workshop at Hackaday Supercon, and hundreds of hours of testing and development by enthusiastic users, developers, and educators who we were able to bring onto the project early on.

Now, we are proud to launch the iCEBreaker Crowd Supply campaign to finally make the hardware available to everyone. We hope you will check out the main project page, back the campaign, and help make iCEBreaker a reality!
