We worked on our Bus Pirate educational kit today.

We implemented the pull up voltage control from the binary scripting mode for Bus Pirate v4. It should now work in all protocols with the command 0×51 for 3.3V, 0×52 for 5V, and 0×50 to switch them off.

Changing the read display mode on the fly is now available for all versions of the Bus Pirate. You simply need to type in ‘d’ for decimal, ‘b’ for binary, and ‘x’ for hexadecimal mode right after the ‘r’ command. Repeat read works as well. For example the command ‘rd’ will read a single byte and display it in the decimal format, while ‘rb:3′ will read 3 bytes and display them in the binary format. This feature is available in the SVN rev2085.

    What’s a BP Educational Kit? Are we just talking a kit basically or am I way off?

    • Ian says:

      It includes a Bus Pirate, a bread board, and a couple chips to learn about busses and protocols. It’ll also have an illustrated guide.

  2. Jeff Fleischer says:

    Will it be available as just the kit without the BP as well for those whom have one?

  3. Ian says:

    probably not right away but maybe eventually

  4. Sleepwalker3 says:

    Oh, that sounds pretty cool. I suppose it’s sort of similar to the BP testing board (whatever it’s called) that’s available now, but with breadboard and stuff, sounds good. Will the guide be available as PDF, etc. or only with the kit (or purchase)?

  5. Sleepwalker3 says:

    Sounds great!
