Bus Pirate LCD adapter DIY redesign

Posted on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 in builds by DP

After receiving a Bus Pirate LCD Adapter Free PCB Ashley couldn’t find any ‘595 shift register ICs, so he was forced to improvise. He redesigned the adapter by using two other logic chips to mimic the single ‘595 shift register. He also redesigned the output from a single row header to a dual row header.

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.

Get an LCD adapter for $9.
