Christmas PCB giveaway

pcb-orphans

Today we built some boxes to help us organize the free PCB drawer. Hopefully we can get them out quicker than ever. Look for a stock update in the free PCB store soon. More on that soon.

During the reorganization we stumbled across these 6 orphaned PCBs, and it seemed in the holiday spirit to give them away instead of adding them to the store. Here’s the Christmas giveaway of orphan PCBs:

  • 2 x Bus Pirate v3 PIC programing adapters, provides 13volts for programming PIC microcontrollers
  • 2 x Bus Pirate v3a – the first majorly mass produced Bus Pirate v3, original green test PCB
  • 2x Bus Pirate v3.5a SOIC DIY edition – from our first attempt at selling PCBs
  • 1x Bus Pirate v3c – never released prototype using a surface mount IO connector that was supposed to save money
  • 1x Bus Pirate v4.0 strange prototype – this one uses the FT232 USB->serial converter chip instead of the on-chip USB of the final v4 design
  • 1x 3EEPROM v2 Bus Pirate demo board

Just leave a comment with the board you’d like, and one of these boards can be yours.

    Any of the Bus Pirates, yo ho ho (ho).

  42. Sleepwalker3 says:

    The BP V3a (I like the green) or BP V3.5a wouldbe great, but I only won a PCB (guess what this chip is?) comp a week or two ago, so don’t know if I’m eligible.

  43. Christopher Phelps says:

    Bus Pirate v3 PIC programing adapter

    • Christopher Phelps says:

      I would like to change my comment . . to Bus Pirate v4.0 strange prototype because the programing adapter would not do me any good without a bus pirate…

  44. Ruben says:

    Bus Pirate v4.0, please!

    Bus Pirate v3 PIC programing adapters, please!! I just re-start using PIC’s and I need something like this. Really I need it. Perhaps after Christmas holidays, you’ll have news from mine, because I’m finishing some projects that I would like to share with yours. Happy holidays from Spain!!!

    • Ian says:

      I wouldn’t count on the Bus Pirate as a great PIC programmer, support is mostly hacked together for a few chips.

  49. b3niup says:

    Bus pirate v3 pic programming adapter if it’d work with bp v4, because I still have no pic programmer and I’ve recently bought few bp v4 sob boards in Schazamps group order :-)

    I would like to win the BusPirate v3a.

  92. Cristian says:

    When will the winners be announced?
