Introducing Serberus, a multi-headed embedded hardware interface tool

June 21, 2024 2:00-2:50 PM

Talk track 2

The Serberus is a multi-headed hardware hacking tool designed to easily connect to your target. It has 4 channels and has headers to interface with UART, JTAG, SPI, I2C and SWD. During this talk I will introduce the Serberus and why I felt it was necessary to create it and what makes it unique and different than the other similar tools.

The Serberus is an evolution of the TIMEP, created by a fellow Google employee a few years ago. It has a similar level shifter design to allow you to connect to any logic voltage between 1.65V and 5.5V, there is even a setting to allow you to match the voltage of your target if it is using a non-standard voltage.

The project is free and open source with all board layouts, design files and schematics published.
