Originally designed as a tool to sniff, monitor, inject or bus protocols like SPI, its open platform has meant that the ‘community’ has developed an XSVF […]

USB Infrared Toy as a JTAG programmer

electronicia4u used a USB Infrared Toy as a JTAG programmer: After seeing circuit details I discovered it used some pic18F2550 as was almost compatible with  dangerousprotypes IR Infrared Toy (also they used same xtal frequency), so I downloaded firmware and programmed succesfully this device easily without modifiying firmware source code. You can get IR Toy […]
