Bus Pirate v4 prototype

in BP v4, Bus Pirate, Development by Ian | 2 comments

This is the first complete working prototype of the Bus Pirate v4. The final header will be shrouded.

In a related development, McZ tipped us to the PicPack open source PIC USB virtual serial firmware. It could be just the thing we need for the Bus Pirate v4 (and the Infrared Toy and Logic Sniffer). We’ll write a test-app that you can try on your IR Toy, look for that tomorrow.

Follow Bus Pirate v4 testing and progress in the development thread.

The Bus Pirate v4 is still in development, but you can get a Bus Pirate v3b for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors Adafruit and Open Source Control Systems. Each purchase supports further development of this open source project.

    What is wrong with the current usb implementation? I tought you were going to migrate to honkens’ open source usb stack?

    We probably still will. I thought this was a complete solution, but it has some issues that complicate using it with the Bus Pirate (source boost compiler, for one).

    As far as I know though, Honken’s stack is a proof of concept and further development has stalled (maybe he has a surprise for us). We’ll probably pick it up soon after the first Bus Pirate prototypes are built.
