Bus Blaster v2 is a pain to test at the factory. That is likely holding up the supply.
A simple Windows test application would help things along. It’s a very basic app if you’re already setup to work with FTDI chips, but we’re not.
To speed things along, we’re offering a bounty for a test application. As a thank you for chipping in, the first developer with an app can take any project from our current catalog and a free PCB code.
A general outline and program requirements are listed below.
- Attach to FT2232
- Configure for IO mode, upper 8bits of MPSSE 1 are output, the lower 8bits are input
- Write 0x55 to upper 8bits, compare to lower 8bits
- Write 0xAA to upper 8bits, compare to lower 8bits
- If 3 & 4 match, success
- Close FT2232, go back to 1 for next test
A command line app is preferable. The testers do require Windows.
