I have an ice40 HX4K breakout board from some English guys - The BlackIce Mx - https://forum.mystorm.uk/t/new-product-blackice-mx/551.
As a relatively new board there is some issues with the Toolchain - https://forum.mystorm.uk/t/icecore-mystorm-firmware/629, I have been enquiring though
Have been away using the new MX connected to my ADC hv ultrasonic pulser project. I'm using SPI to talk with the MX from my raspberry pi. All working ok so far, but I want to store my bitfile into flash so that when the MX powers up it will load the bitfile. Found this long thread and wanted to know what the supported method is...

I have the same idea as you - of connecting my newly arrived BlackIce Mx to an HV ultrasonic pulser - like with Luc’s development at http://un0rick.cc/1.
Have you got any further?

I've got the MX talking to a raspberry pi over SPI. I've implemented a small API to allow me to control the sample rate and to collect samples. At this stage, I just need to trigger the pulser and collect waveforms every 3ms. The application uses a bistatic setup where particles that pass through the FOV and have to be detected.
Anyway, I plan to attach your modules to the board with the laser drivers, adc and servos in developing the ‘Botticelli surgical system’.
Fortunately the ‘Da Vinci’ World patent has now expired - https://www.intuitive.com/
Your help in the venture would be greatly appreciated
