Home * Dedicated Chess Computers * PicoChess

a dedicated chess computer project developed and maintained by Jean-Francois Romang, followed by Shivkumar Shivaji and more recently by Jürgen Précour [1] . The computer is based on the Raspberry Pi or similar ARM boards, the Stockfish engine, and the DGT Board and DGT clock. Further, PicoChess also targets x86 based destop PCs, to run not only Stockfish but any UCI compliant engine. PicoChess is Free software licensed under the GPLv3, and uses python-chess by Niklas Fiekas [2] to handle chess rules, opening books, and PGN files [3] . The display of the digital chess clock acts as output device of a command line interface.
