Tom chose to redeem one of his coupons for a Bus Pirate v3 from the scratch and dent category of our free PCB drawer. On arrival it was faulty, but he was quick to diagnose a problem with the FT232RL USB-to-serial IC on board. After replacement the Bus Pirate came to life.

I chose a bus pirate v3 pcb in a dangerousprototypes.com scratch and dent giveaway. To my surprise I received an assembled unit that was faulty. The USB wasn’t responding so I replaced the ft232rl and bing it came to life. Updated the boot loader and then the firmware, now I’m about to use it to talk 1wire to the ds18s20 temp sensors that have been gathering dust in my parts box.
Thanks for running such a great site.
