Knallloch is a stand-alone USB universal programmer, USB-UART bridge, USB-SPI bridge, bit-bang GPIO and debugging tool designed to be used with Lone Dynamics devices as well as other devices.
It can be used as a stand-alone USB programmer for MCUs and FPGAs or it can be connected to a Pmod-compatible port and act as a USB UART and USB GPIO/SPI/I2C bridge for a host system. Additionally, it can be used as part of a mass-programming jig by attaching pogo pins (e.g. P75-E2) to the grid.
Currently available for reservation. Final appearance, specifications, pricing and features subject to change.
