Bus Pirate and plasma TV parts

Posted on Saturday, October 6th, 2012 in Bus Pirate by the machinegeek

Miceuz discovered a plasma TV by the dumpster and used the BASIC interpreter on the Bus Pirate to play with some of the components cannibalized from inside. Above he shows the BP connected to a 6-LED indicator with a M62320FP chip and an I/O port expander for I2C.
