Effective January 1st 2022, ICE Enterprises will increase all product prices by 20%. Market forces, both rising component cost and increasing material lead time, are requiring the first price adjustment in company history. This price increase will allow ICE Enterprises to continue to design and manufacture quality electronic hardware as has been the case for over two decades. ICE Enterprises will honor all current price quotes and accept orders at existing pricing through the end of December 2021.

WARNING: All ICE-PIC8 series cards must only be flashed with ICE Option Tree 398-xx. Flashing with other versions can result in permanent damage to card and VOID THE WARRANTY!

ICE recommends that the latest stable release is used to loadflash and operate ICE DSP cards, e.g., ICE-PIC 6/7/8 series. It is our intention that new software releases are backwards compatible with older hardware; however, older software should not be used with later hardware. Consider the compatibility table below:

ice396-xx Yes Yes No
ice397-xx Beta - not recommended Beta - not recommended No
ice398-xx Yes Yes Yes

Additionally, it is very important that when flashing an ICE-PIC card, the correct load is used that corresponds to the series of the ICE-PIC. A mismatch here can cause inoperable damage and voids the warranty. The following examples all loadflash a PIC card with the HH signal:

  • ICE-PIC6: use icepic6_hh
  • ICE-PIC7: use icepic7_hh
  • ICE-PIC8: use icepic8_hh

If there is any doubt, please contact ICE before proceeding with the loadflash.
