Seeed Studio is working on a probe cable for the Open Logic Sniffer. We’ll give you an update as soon as we hear more.

You can try building your own cable with some cheap probes from Deal Extreme (~$3 for 10). The trick will be finding a 1×9 row connector, if you know of any sources please share them in the comments.

The Open Logic Sniffer is currently available for preorder at Seeed Studio for $45, including worldwide shipping.

Seeed Studio is now listing a Bus Pirate compatible probe cable kit for $4.90. That’s about $7.75 including worldwide shipping. This cable has been a pretty popular item, we’re really glad Seeed is making them available for everyone.

The cable is a kit that you solder yourself. It includes a 2×5 connector that mates with the Bus Pirate, rainbow ribbon cable, and 10 hook type probes.

You can still preorder an assembled Bus Pirate v3 with a red PCB for $30 at Seeed Studio, including worldwide shipping.

Seeed Studio may put together a Bus Pirate probe cable kit. We’re not involved in this sale, but we encouraged Seeed to offer it as an inexpensive accessory for the Bus Pirate. We get a lot of questions about this cable, this might be your chance to get one.

We suggested that Seeed use the round barrel clips, rather then the flat tweezers. The tweezers probes on this test cable didn’t last very long, though we really abuse our tools.

Don’t forget that it’s time to vote in Seeed’s Rainbowduino contest.
