       arachne-pnr - Place and route tool for iCE40 family FGPAs


       arachne-pnr [options] <filename>


       Arachne-pnr  implements  the  place and route step of the hardware compilation process for
       FPGAs. It accepts as input a technology-mapped netlist in BLIF format, as  output  by  the
       Yosys  synthesis  suite  for example. It currently targets the Lattice Semiconductor iCE40
       family of FPGAs. Its output is a textual bitstream  representation  for  assembly  by  the
       IceStorm  icepack  command.   The  output  of  icepack  is a binary bitstream which can be
       uploaded to a hardware device.


       -h, --help
