800px-Pull_type_clutch

Today we concentrated on completing the ‘clutch’ patch for the Bus Pirate. It keeps the pins in HiZ on the start of every protocol, and only sets them to output if the power supply command ‘W’ is entered. To disengage the clutch again you just need to turn off the power supplies with the command ‘w’.

While the Bus Pirate is in UART mode output pins were being read as input. This issue was addressed today as well.

    Just to note the uart was not broken this is just an astetic change for the info view.
