Hello,

can anyone tell me how I can use the UART-Interface on my Lattice 
ICEStick?
I want to send and receive Data via this interface, unfortunately I am 
not able to find any tutorials or other information for my lattice 
device.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely,
Banane

What about using Googles?

Thank you for your response.

I've tried to synthesize the verilog file from the demo, but every time 
I am getting this error:

evhw2@evhw2:~/Desktop/icestorm/iCEstick-UART-Demo$ make flash
yosys -p "read_verilog uart_demo.v; synth_ice40 -flatten -blif 
uart_demo.blif"

So, now you must start thinking. It seems a good time for that...

What is that parameter "sys_clk_freq" in module "uart"?
How could it be passed to that module?
Is a kind of "global define" for "sys_clk_freq" missing?
