From DP Bus Pirate v3.6 available now for $30.15, including worldwide shipping Bus Pirate v3.6 is also available at Adafruit Industries (USA) EpicTinker (USA) Watterott Electronic (Germany) Evola (Europe) Anibit (USA) Hackaday (USA) The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff. It's got a bunch of features an intrepid hacker might need to prototype their next project. This manual is an effort to link all available Bus Pirate information in one place. Read about the Bus Pirate v3 design; the v3b update; and the v3.5 update. An initial batch of Bus Pirate v4 is now available to early adopters and testers. Introduction Features Features overview (original) Hardware Tutorials Forums Bus Pirate forums Linux, OS X Download Although the primary target of community is to significantly improve the user experience for Bus Pirate v4, the Bus Pirate v3 support will be maintained at all costs (despite the difficulties while compiling with the recent MPLAB XC16 compilers) Mods Related:  micro controller stuff

Home - SD Association Dash: The DIY Robot Dash is the world's first lightning-fast origami robot that you can build yourself. Our animal-inspired design allows us to offer a fun, high performance robot at a price never before possible. It's a great educational tool for kids that want to get an early start in robotics, engineering, and biology, as well as a great platform for makers that want to dig in and explore the possibilities of a new paradigm in robotics. Because he has legs, Dash can run over all sorts of terrain, including rocks and gravel. And he is so tough that you can run him off of tables and he just keeps going! When you back us, you'll be getting more than just an awesome robot. "Dash is about radical innovation, the sort of progress that elicits an emotional 'whoa!'. -Patrick Scaglia, former CTO, HP “Dash is a fantastic product for the robot enthusiast or budding 'maker'. -Charles Huang, Inventor of Guitar Hero, CEO of Green Throttle Games ""Seeing Dash scramble across terrain brings a smile to your face.

How-to: Bus Pirate v1, improved universal serial interface We use the Bus Pirate to interface a new chip without writing code or designing a PCB. Based on your feedback, and our experience using the original Bus Pirate to demonstrate various parts, we updated the design with new features and cheaper components. There’s also a firmware update for both Bus Pirate hardware versions, with bug fixes, and a PC AT keyboard decoder. We cover the design updates and interface a digital to analog converter below. Concept overview The Bus Pirate started as a collection of code fragments we used to test new chips without endless compile-program-run development cycles.

CPUs AMD hosted their quarterly earnings conference call this afternoon to announce their financial results for the quarter ending March 2014. While they still reported a GAAP loss of $20 Million ($0.03 per share), year over year results showed a strong revenue gain of 28% and a substantial 86% increase in net income (though still a small loss). AMD Q1 2014 Financial Results (GAAP) Q1'2014 Q4'2013 Q1'2013 Revenue $1.40B $1.59B $1.09B Net Income -$20M $89M -$146M Gross margins were 35% for the quarter which was flat compared to Q4 2013. These margins are in-line with AMD’s stated goals, and while they’d no doubt appreciate greater margins right now, the long term plan is to be profitable with these margins. Non-GAAP numbers were slightly higher, with a small profit of $12M, or $0.02 per share.

$300 Pick and Place / 3D printer In order for this project to be successful, we must define a set of criteria, and then break the problem down into a set of little problems that can be tackled, one by one. We chose a Delta robot configuration over a more conventional Cartesian design. This allows us more speed, less BOM cost going bearings and linear slides, and easier build / configuration. I've taken the RepRap philosophy to heart. I've designed FirePick Delta around the following parts: Roller bearings: Use primarily 608 for anything load-heavy. SMT parts are getting smaller and smaller every year. OPEN SOURCE vs. We will keep it open and pay it forward. {*style:<ul>*}{*style:<li>*}{*style:<a href=' - Is a project to create the plans, prototype and software for a completely Open Source SMT pick and place machine that anyone can afford.
