Bus Pirate PIC programmer free PCB build

Posted on Monday, June 13th, 2011 in builds by Ian

SineWave built an early version of the Bus Pirate PIC programming adapter. This version would have needed several cables, we made the final design stackable instead.

The Bus Pirate PIC programmer project is has been idle for a while. It would be nice if the Bus Pirate could do absolutely everything, but it’s a ton of work to develop when a full debugger that works with Microchip’s official tools is available for $35.

Prototype Bus Pirate HVP adapters are available at Seeed for interested developers.

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.
