Bus Pirate power tools

Posted on Thursday, August 26th, 2010 in Bus Pirate, utilities by Ian

Are there any ‘power tools’ that would make the Bus Pirate more useful? We want to develop a collection of cross-platform command line utilities for common stuff.

There’s already two apps. The first accesses the SPI sniffer from binary mode for maximum speed. The second is a self-test utility that will be used in production.

Next we’ll release an I2C sniffer and EEPROM reader utilities. Please add your suggestions below.

There’s a simple C framework you can use to build your own programs that access the Bus Pirate. It compiles with open source tools, we’re using Codeblocks+MinGW. Get the latest version in SVN.

    It mixes with the other discussion at the moment regarding the function generator test equipment, but why not do a quick app for a single or dual channel freq generator?
    I also have immediate need for something that has two outputs of which they one shot with a specific period between the rising edge of each pulse.
    Used for starting and stopping a timer to measure rate of speed. One output is for start, the other for stop.
