Free PCB Sunday: Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter

Posted on Monday, January 17th, 2011 in Free PCBs by Ian

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. Our PCBs are made through Seeed Studio’s Fusion board service.

This week we’re giving away two boards for the Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter. It provides a 13 volt source to put PIC 16F and 18F into programming mode. It is intended for the piratePICprog application, but it is still very much a work in progress. If you’d like a PCB just ask for one in the comments.

Now available to developers for $12 at Seeed Studio, read about the design on the wiki.
