Event Details

The dangerous prototypes logic pirate is a new 8 channel logic analyser design from the home of the bus pirate.  It uses the open SUMP protocol supported by the ols java client software (Mac, Windows, Linux).

This project is of similar difficulty to the internet of things arduino, except none of the chips are so fine pitched (the usb connector is however).  There are parts on both sides.  The board is very small 3cm x 3cm making a nice compact tool.  If you are a competant with through hole soldering you can easily tackle this project.

It is recommended that you bring your own soldering iron, tweezers and magnifier, limited supplies are available.  It is not necessary to arrive on time, please arrive when you can and plan to attend catchup nights if necessary.  Practice boards are available for use before you start your project.

From the website....

Here are some of its features:

  • 8 channels
  • 256 kSamples recording size
  • 60 MHz (overclocked) sampling rate (20 MHz and lower non-overclocked)
  • No compromise when combining the values above
  • Simple configurable edge detection triggers on all inputs (simple OR trigger)
  • Configurable ratio of samples from before and after the trigger (rolling sample buffer)
  • 5 V tolerant inputs (LOW-level voltage < 0.8 V, HIGH-level voltage > 2.0 V)
  • About 500 kB/s transfer speed to the PC (256 kSamples take about 0.5 seconds)
  • Data capturing can be stopped from the host software anytime
  • Cross platform host software for Windows, OS X, and Linux
  • DIY-friendly 0603 parts and SOIC packages used on a 2-layer board
  • On board 3.3 V regulator can supply up to 400 mA to an external circuit
  • Tiny 3cm x 3cm PCB
  • Firmware updates via built-in USB bootloader
  • Probe cables and acrylic case available from Seeed Studio
  • Open source PCB (EAGLE) and firmware files

Some features of the host software:

  • Precise measurement by using up to ten free placeable cursors
  • Automatic period, frequency, and duty cycle measurement
  • Displaying channel groups as HEX values and/or as an analog signal
  • Analyzers for a large number of protocols: 1-Wire, I2C, JTAG, SPI, UART, etc.
