dretay made a 3D-printed Bus Blaster v4 case: A basic enclosure for the Dangerous Prototypes Bus Blaster v4. The enclosure needs to be the full height of the programmer due to the jumpers. In the future I may trim down the jumpers on my board and use a thinner case that exposes more of the JTAG header. I’ve […]
Angus describes on his blog how he used the Bus Blaster to recover a bricked CC3D board: A few months ago I went to upgrade my OpenPilot CC3D board an something went amiss and I ended up trashing the bootloader. I didn’t have a SWD dongle to reprogram it with so its been collecting dust. I just […]
@joegrand tweeted, “Extracting firmware via JTAG never gets old. Thanks @dangerousproto and UrJTAG! ”
@joegrand tweeted this picture, “A boatload of Bus Blasters” The Bus Blaster is a high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. You can get a Bus Blaster v3 for $34.95 and a Bus Blaster v4 for $45 at Seeed.
Enrique Murias made these DIY cases for his Bus Pirate v3.6 and Bus Blaster. Via Twitter. More cool DIY cases here. You can get a Bus Blaster v4 for $45 and a Bus Pirate for $30.
Bkubicek made a 3D-printed Bus Blaster case: Its a case for the v2.5 Bus Blaster. My first attempt to nurbs surfaces using rhino. Bus Blaster v2 is an experimental, high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. Via the forum. More cool DIY cases here. You can get a Bus Blaster v2 […]
Bus Blaster v3 design overview, programming and self-test. We also thank Microchip for sending us 2 tubes of scratch ‘n’ dent 23LC1024 marked 23K1024. Read about the Bus Blaster v3 and how it came to be, below. Update: new video with correct sound mixing
Grapsus built a free Bus Blaster v4.1 PCB. The Bus Blaster is a high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash memory, and more. If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flickr, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the […]
Gege2b built a free Bus Blaster v1 PCB.This is the first prototype of the Bus Blaster that used fixed discrete logic to imitate a JTAGkey programmer type. The most recent Bus Blasters replace the fixed logic with a programmable CPLD logic chip so it can be upgraded to imitate many different programmers. The Bus Blaster […]
Mikelelere modified Actel’s DirectC 2.7 programming utility to support the Bus Blaster. With his modifications you should be able to program Actel’s FPGAs using programinn DAT files. The Bus Blaster is a high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. You can get a Bus Blaster v2 for $34.95 at Seeed. Via […]
Today’s 3D model is the Bus Blaster v3c in our Sick of Beige v1 enclosure. The Bus Blaster is a high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. The v3 is a PCB, and part placement change only. The electrical connections are identical to the Bus Blaster v2. Get a Bus Blaster […]
Lately we’re playing around with a 1.8” serial interface TFT which can be bought from eBay for ~$6. We added it to our Eagle part library. We also found some errors on the standard Eagle footprint for 2×10 shrouded headers we use in the Bus Blaster v3. Image of the new, fixed shrouded header’s footprint, […]
Tickets are booked for the Singapore Maker Faire August 4 and 5. Ian will give a presentation at the Singapore Hackerspace on Friday around 5:30 before the regular pizza and beer night. We’ll have videos of Singapore’s electronics shops, the Hackerspace, Maker Faire, and more. Bus Blaster v3 and v4 prototype boards arrived and will […]
Our latest 3D model is the Bus Blaster v3c high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. The v3 is a PCB, and part placement change only. The electrical connections are identical to the Bus Blaster v2. Get a Bus Blaster v2 for $34.95. In version 3 we moved the Bus Blaster […]
We’re committed to Maker Faire Singapore now, so suddenly there’s a ton of planning and connections to make. Thanks to everyone who wrote in so far to let us know you’ll be there, there could be five or more people on the electronics tour. A draft of the laser cutting guide for Sick of Beige […]
Today we chose the winner of the Simplecortex giveaway. We finished the Bus Blaster v4.1, and added it to the next batch of PCBs we’ll get from Seeed. We also continued to route a minimal version of the DP Badge, which will have the user only solder the LEDs he wants to light up. The […]
Today we worked on the 3D model and rendering of the XC95144XL CPLD breakout board. Later we also made some renders for soon to be released product. We continued routing the Bus Blaster v4 board. We optimized some signal trace lengths, and added ground vias near decoupling caps. We also fixed some silk labels.
Today we ported the open source USB to two microcontrollers, the PIC18F2550, and the PIC24FJ64GB002. While the echo demo we had worked with the PIC18F2550, it was built to work with the IR Toy, so some board specific stuff was in there. The new ports are bare bones, and are intended for any board that […]
Today we worked on the homemade flux video. Documentation for the Part Ninja continued. Most of the part recognition diagrams are uploaded, and the information on how the Part Ninja identifies different parts was added. Today we took a look at the Bus Blaster, and how we could improve it. This project is very far […]
A test buffer for the CPLD on the experimental Bus Blaster v3 is now available in the forum. The self test passed, but it needs more real-world testing. If you built a Bus Blaster v3 free PCB please give it a try and report how it went. Bus Blaster v3 is a small update to […]
