Thank you. Browsing internet, I found board from olimex

and they seem to develop their own programmer using atmega32u4 arduino compatible board

I think it would be great to have this option in icestudio. It is perhaps more suitable for permanent projects (as opposed to all-in-one development boards), where programmer usually isn't part of the board.

By the way, original ICEstick from Lattice and ICEzum do contain 144-pin version of ICE40HX1K. For smaller projects, 100-pin version seems to be slightly more suitable (and somehow cheaper too). Does the icestudio support this FPGA variation too?

What about HX4K and HX8K versions of FPGA? HX4K is perhaps more appealing for hobby projects, being produced in TQFP package.

What is the particular devboard you used for this demonstration?
