Bus Pirate breadboard probe cable

Posted on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 in Bus Pirate, Bus Pirate accessories by Ian

Zbig shared his approach to the breadboarding cable for the Bus Pirate.

I use single pins soldered to the cables and secured with some shrink tube. I make the labels with Brother P-Touch label maker on a special flexible tape (TZ-FX series).

    Very neat job, good idea too :)
    I really need to sort my labeling out bits of transparent tape stuck to things just don’t cut it in this day and age no more.

    Excellent idea! I think I’ll make a set for myself.

    I wonder if there’d be any value in staggering the labels to make it a bit easier to sort out visually. Maybe three different positions on the cables: one right at the shrink tubing, one a tape width up the cable, and another two tape widths up the cable.
