Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter sold out

in Bus Pirate, PIC, PiratePICprog by Ian | 8 comments

The Bus Pirate PIC programming adapters we made for developers are already gone. Seeed Studio is working on a couple more, in case some potential developers missed out.

We started with a cautious 20 units, just for developers. We expected 20 to last a long time, since it’s totally unsupported hardware. Now we’re wondering where they all went.

Did you order one? Do you plan to contribute?

    I have a feeling a lot got snatched up at the discount price in anticipation of support…

    • Sjaak says:

      It only takes one to add basic support for PIC10/12/14/16/18. The others are just variations on that.

      Let’s see what the future brings.. ;)

    On another topic: I just received my STM32 discovery board. Nice to see if the bus pirate can be ported to it ;) Just don’t wait I’ll do everything, as I’m little busy…

    One is on route to me in RO :)

    Nope, planning it to use with a couple of PIC’s that I have. :)

  5. Rick says:

    I bought one, and also just picked up a Pickit 3 for comparison. I am hoping to help out.

  6. Trev says:

    I imagine Seeed Studio’s listing it at a 42% discount didn’t help.

    • Ian says:

      That was my fault, and that is what I worry about.

      It’s only been verified by reading the ID and erasing a PIC 18F2550, so I wanted to emphasize that it was totally untested, what you see is what you get.
