Bus Pirate v4 is a universal bus interface that talks to electronics from a computer serial terminal. Get to know a chip without writing code. Eliminates a ton of early prototyping effort with new or unknown chips. Seeed Studio is the official manufacturer and supporter of the Bus Pirate project. Version 4 is the next generation Bus Pirate hardware, but it's not as stable as Bus Pirate v3.

If you're just starting out with the Bus Pirate we still recommend v3 - it's cheaper, more reliable, and has all the same major features. See a Bus Pirate v4 vs v3 comparison. Protocols 1-Wire, I2C, SPI, JTAG, asynchronous serial (UART), MIDI, PC keyboard, HD44780 LCDs, and generic 2- and 3-wire libraries for custom protocols.

Firmware Upgrade Notification

  • If you are unsatisfied with the current firmware version, please check with the newly upgrade firmware v6.1.

      First batch warning

      • Each Bus Pirate v4 is tested before it leaves the factory, but please keep in mind that v4 is still experimental, unproven hardware. If in doubt please buy the cheaper Bus Pirate v3, it is still manufactured and actively supported. This hardware is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but without any warranty; without even the implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.

    ★★★★★ Great bag
    Purchased this for my 23 year old daughter in the butterscotch color. Great versatile color. She loves the size -- perfect for day or going out at night. Chain can be double to shorten for nighttime and left long to wear as a crossbody during the day.
