The Lattice iCE40 is a family of FPGAs with a minimalistic architecture and very regular structure, designed for low-cost, high-volume consumer and system applications. BeagleWire does not require external tools (JTAG) and the whole software is Open Source. FPGA cape allows easy and low cost start for beginners who would like to take their first steps in working with FPGAs. The BeagleWire creates a powerful and versatile digital cape for users to create their imaginative digital designs.

Hardware Specification:

  • FPGA: Lattice iCE40HX4K
  • 32 MB SDRAM
  • GPIO
  • 4 LEDs
  • 4 PMOD connectors
  • 4 Grove connectors
  • 2 user push buttons
  • 2 input DIP switch
  • 100Mhz external clock
  • 4 layer PCB optimized design to support maximum performance for high bandwidth applications

The project is completely open and community contributions are encouraged.

I'm trying to log in to my beaglebone using the image provided here, but the default password debian/temppwd is not working.  Can you provide the user/login for this image?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Lets continue to figure this out via email. Just sent you another reply and hopefully we can figure this out. The defaults should be the same if all is well.
