eCow-logic is an open-hardware development kit based on Lattice ICE40 FPGA. The board use pico-ITX form factor that allow to put them into a standard case. The goal of this project is to provide a -really- simple hardware and software environment for for professional and teaching applications. A user-friendly approach is the guiding thread of the project.

The embedded web-server allow to load the bitstream without any probe or additional software.

The eCowLogic board can be used with Cowlab, an online IDE with Yosys toolbox. With cowlab, you can write HDL, synthesis design, and load into ecowlogic ... without installing any software on your computer :)
