Popular Science likes the Bus Pirate

Posted on Monday, September 10th, 2012 in Bus Pirate, Editorial by DP

The Bus Pirate gets a mention as one of Popular Science’s favorite advanced development tools!

This tool greatly simplifies prototyping. It can speak most common bus protocols, which allows me to play with new chips from a serial console or in software before building hardware around them

The Bus Pirate was in a great crowd. Other testing gear included a sound-pressure meter, a non-contact tachometer, and a logic analyzer. Thanks for the shout out Vin!

    An SPL meter and a non-contact tachometer? Really? Bus Pirate is an obvious choice. I think an O’scope like the DSO should have been on there. Or is that now considered basic? And I would have picked a non-contact thermometer over a tachometer.
