Bus Pirate v3.8 free PCB build


Ilias Giechaskiel blogged about his free Bus Pirate v3.8 PCB build.  The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff.

The next step was to burn the bootloader onto the Bus Pirate. Though I have found a couple of good resources for this already (1 and 2), I needed to modify a few steps as I was running Linux (also, the second link is in Spanish, so repeating some of what it says in English is probably a good thing). Though I already owned a PICkit 3, I hadn’t yet used it, as I tend to work with Atmel chips, so I first had to install the toolchain.

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.

    1. Looks like the Adafruit ruler.

      But every1 and his mother does such rulers, Dave did, he has the longest. Mike would do but still plays with his roentgen thingy, Louis is preparing three 2 hours long videos about it. And Martin was almost there but now is in the grow business.
