I’d like to introducing Tigard, an open source FT2232H-based multi-protocol, multi-voltage tool for hardware hacking. This is a new tool to replace the Adafruit FT232H breakout boards that i have used for the past several years. Desipte using it and other FTDI-based I/O boards for years, I have never found the one that fit my uses just right. In that time, I’ve fine-tuned my wish list and shared it many times, but it never magically appeared.

This spring, with newfound free time, funding from the CARES Act Payroll Protection Program, and heaps of help from Franklin Harding and Piotr Esden-Tempski, we built the device we’ve always wanted.

I hope that you find Tigard is as useful as I have found the prototypes to be in my own work and teaching, and I’m looking forward to seeing what all of you are able to reverse engineer, prototype, build, and hack with Tigard.

The Crowdsupply Campaign will be live momentarily.
