CROWD SUPPLY Tigard open source, multi-protocol, multi-voltage tool for hardware hacking is versatile and easy to use. Product combines support for the most-used interfaces and most-needed features in a single device. Specifically, the FT2232H-based serial converter board is designed to attach to, and communicate with, low-speed interfaces on reverse-engineered hardware targets. Product is accessible enough to make a suitable first tool for newcomers to hardware hacking. Tool comes with labelled wiring harness, commonly used pin-outs, onboard level shifting, and logic analyzer connection. Product delivers native support for hardware tools like FlashROM and OpenOCD, as its USB Type C high-speed interface and the on-board FTDI FT2232HQ USB Hi-Speed–to–multipurpose UART/FIFO IC. The board features high-performance directional level-shifters to support operation from 1.8 to 5.5V and is designed to work as-is with multiple tools and software libraries.
