We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. PCBs by Seeed Studio.

This is a PIC and AVR programming adapter for the Bus Pirate (through-hole version). It has a 5pin PIC-ICSP header and a 6pin AVR-ISP header. It also includes a small 13volt boost-converter power supply. A 13volt VPP supply is required to program PIC 12/16/18F microcontrollers. We though it might be useful for clearing the RESET fuse in AVRs too, but that part isn’t going to work (it still has a handy 2×3 ISP connector for programming AVRs though).

We’re giving away two PCBs this week. Just ask for one in the comments.

USBRGBPCB

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This is a USB controlled RGB color changing light. Ian did this project at DIY Life, a Weblogs, Inc. site that shut down about a year ago. Someone made some minor modifications to the design and had a bunch of boards produced, we ended up with a pile of the extras. This PCB is as-of-yet untested, you can discuss it in the forum.

We’re giving away two PCBs this week, just ask for one in the comments. Be sure to use a real e-mail in the address field so we can contact you for shipping info. Some rules after the break.

pcb-2a2go

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we never use. Every Sunday we give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This week we’re giving away one Bus Pirate v2a PCB (left) and one Bus Pirate v2go PCB (right).  The Bus Pirate v2a was really handy for developing the Bus Pirate v2 series, but the Bus Pirate v2go is really the final revision of the v2 design.

This week we’re giving away one of each v2 PCB, PCBs made by Seeed Studio. Request your free PCB in the comments, the first request can specify v2a or v2go. Be sure to use a real e-mail in the address field so we can contact you for shipping info. Some rules after the break.

v2a.iii

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. This week we’re going to start a regular, weekly PCB giveaway. Every Sunday we’re going to give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This week we’ll send a Bus Pirate v2a PCB to two readers, PCB by Seeed Studio. The Bus Pirate v2a was really handy for developing the Bus Pirate v2 series, but the Bus Pirate v2go is really the final revision of the v2 design. The nicest feature of v2a is the power switch, which allows developers to reset the Bus Pirate without messing with the USB cable. If you don’t get a free one, Seeed Studio still has some v2a PCBs for sale.
