Bus Pirate v4 firmware alpha – alive!

Posted on Monday, October 11th, 2010 in BP v4, Bus Pirate by Ian

Bus Pirate v4 is alive!

Bus Pirate firmware v5.9 is running on the new Bus Pirate v4 hardware with direct PIC-based USB connection. It started out slow because USB support is hacked into replacements for the existing serial port functions, but the latest SVN version is working great.

BPv4 doesn’t pass the self-test yet, but we expect to work out the remaining bugs and new commands in the next few days. Stay tuned for more updates, and follow our progress in the forum.

The new code shouldn’t interfere with the v3 source, so it’s part of the active trunk in SVN.

What a day! We’re going to make 10 or 20 experimental BPv4s for developers. If you want to develop for BPv4 please let us know ASAP, half the prototypes are already reserved.
