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.
