Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter sold out

Posted on Thursday, November 11th, 2010 in Bus Pirate, PIC, PiratePICprog by Ian

The Bus Pirate PIC programming adapters we made for developers are already gone. Seeed Studio is working on a couple more, in case some potential developers missed out.

We started with a cautious 20 units, just for developers. We expected 20 to last a long time, since it’s totally unsupported hardware. Now we’re wondering where they all went.

Did you order one? Do you plan to contribute?

    I have a feeling a lot got snatched up at the discount price in anticipation of support…

    • Sjaak says:

      It only takes one to add basic support for PIC10/12/14/16/18. The others are just variations on that.

      Let’s see what the future brings.. ;)

    On another topic: I just received my STM32 discovery board. Nice to see if the bus pirate can be ported to it ;) Just don’t wait I’ll do everything, as I’m little busy…

    One is on route to me in RO :)

  4. tayken says:

    Nope, planning it to use with a couple of PIC’s that I have. :)

  5. Rick says:

    I bought one, and also just picked up a Pickit 3 for comparison. I am hoping to help out.

  6. Trev says:

    I imagine Seeed Studio’s listing it at a 42% discount didn’t help.

    • Ian says:

      That was my fault, and that is what I worry about.

      It’s only been verified by reading the ID and erasing a PIC 18F2550, so I wanted to emphasize that it was totally untested, what you see is what you get.

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...
  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?
  • KH: Agree, so okay, I guess he must have learned from somewhere. 100nF and 1000uF is so far apart, that was jarring; it's more magic incantation...
