FOR DEVELOPERS: Bus Pirate v4
An experimental Bus Pirate v4 prototype is now available for $50 at Seeed Studio. This batch of Bus Pirate v4 is intended only for developers and accessory designers. It comes on a green PCB to signify that it’s not ready for general use.
It ships without a firmware, you must have a PIC programmer to use Bus Pirate v4.
The initial price is set very high to discourage non-developers. Active developers will receive a 50%-100% refund from Dangerous Prototypes.
Seeed is listing half of the developer boards. If they run out and you need one, we’ll dip into the reserve boards.
If no major flaws are discovered in the v4 design, it can go into mass production when we have a working bootloader for USB firmware upgrades. Unfortunately this hasn’t even been started, but we hope to make some progress next week.BP v4, Bus Pirate and tagged bus pirate v4, Seeed Studio.
