Serial port only Bus Pirate v3b

Posted on Monday, January 31st, 2011 in BP v3, Bus Pirate by Ian

schazamp made a serial port only version of the Bus Pirate v3b:

I have long admired the Bus Pirate, and wanted to build my own. Since I already have an FTDI USB-to-TTY cable, I thought I might replace the FTDI FT232RL subsystem on the Bus Pirate (v3b) with a header for my cable, to save on component cost and board space.

Get your own handy Bus Pirate for $30, including world-wide shipping. Also available from our friendly distributors AdafruitOpen Source Control Systems, and eHaJo.

Via the forum.

    I made some updates to the PCB art, including tenting the smaller vias and rearranging the silkscreen. See the latest version here:
