SPRAM on iCE40 FPGA

The iCE40 UltraPlus distinguishes itself from the rest of the iCE40 FPGA family by including a relatively generous 1 Mb (128 KiB) of single port synchronous SRAM known as SPRAM. SPRAM blocks are much larger than BRAM but are limited to a single port and 16-bit data bus. In this quick how to, we learn how to use SPRAM with Yosys and contrast it with Block RAM.
