iCEblink40HX1K Evaluation Kit

A low-cost platform for evaluating and developing with the low-power iCE40HX1K FPGA. The board provides access to general-purpose I/O and includes capacitive-touch buttons and LEDs. The board is powered and programmed via USB. An on-board microcontroller enables two-way communication with the iCE40HX1K FPGA.

The free iCEcube2™ development tool controls programming, accesses virtual I/O functions, and runs the included demos. iCEcube2 can be downloaded from the Lattice website.
