Bus Pirate v3.8 free PCB build

Posted on Thursday, July 17th, 2014 in builds, Bus Pirate by DP


Mikelelere built a free Bus Pirate v3.8 PCB.  The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff.

I eventually managed to get all the required parts to assemble the BP v3.8 free PCB I received a couple of months ago. The microusb connector was such a PITA to solder!! I definitely prefer the good old miniusb connectors. They’re much easier to solder and way much sturdier. Anyway thanks DP for the free PCB!

Via the forum.

    Can you tell me what the difference is between the v3.6 and the v3.8? I just bought a BP v3 from Seeed, and received a v3.6 (which works fine by the way, and is a lot of fun to play with).

      v3.8 is a variant we played with:
      *micro USB connector
      *different pinout (fixed pinout, all bus pirates have wrong pinout)
