Your favorite switch just got even better The Skunk gets a new version for 2022! Still providing the same features you know and love, the software remains the same but the hardware has had some visible changes. Probably the most obvious is the move from the classic green soldermask to a fresh purple. Some changes are not just cosmetic though: the physical footprint has been reduced quite a bit. From 84x75 mm down to 75x61 mm, the Skunk just got a 27% size reduction. It now takes even less space in your hacker backpack or toolbox. This becomes pretty obvious when...

Are you growing tired of the "classic" look of the Skunk's basic enclosure? Do you wish there was a funkier alternative? I wanted to experiment with other designs for this case. After some playing around, I came up with two alternatives which, at least to me, provide some nice change of outfit for the Skunk. Please note: only the standard green case is shipped with the Skunk for now. The cases presented here are simply experiments that I encourage anyone with a 3D printer to try out for themselves. The bottom part of the case has not actually changed -...
After receiving multiple messages regarding the possibility of powering the Skunk from a USB source, I felt I had to address this legitimate need. I had initially designed the Skunk to operate from the same voltage as a USB port to ensure that something like this could be envisionned later if required. So here it is: the Skunk now includes a USB power cable which features a USB-A male plug on one end and on the other end, the same center-positive 2.1-5.5 DC barrel jack as on the included wall adapter. This allows fun things like powering from a USB...
After reading many of your messages about the Skunk and its features, I was able to get a better understanding of what most users needed. I took some time the past few days to work on implementing the features that seemed to warrant the highest attention. So here it is (finally): version 1.2.0 of the Skunk firmware. In in this article I will try to present the changes brought along by this new update. A better command-line interface One of the key advantages of the Skunk is the simplicity with which it can be configured, simply by plugging in a...
