I was hoping for a open-toolchain-compatible fpga, but I honestly didn't expect you to pull it off with the chip shortage. Well done!

@uglyhack what makes an #FPGA 'open-toolchain-compatible'? I did a workshop with the #iCE40UP5K and I don't think I needed any propietary software for that (I used arachne-pnr 20180909 from Debian).


I was afraid this part wouldn't be available due to the chip shortage, and was expressing joy that the badge team got enough of them! AFAIK, this part can be used with a 100% open toolchain. Sorry if I was unclear.

@uglyhack ahhh gotcha, totally misread!

Now to come up with something interesting to do with this thing...
