Open source hardware

  1. 1. Edmond Lau, July 2011introducingOpen Source Hardware
  2. 2. WHAT IS OPEN SOURCEHARDWARE?
  3. 3. What is Open Source Hardware?• Open source hardware (OSHW) consists of physical artifacts of technology designed and offered in the same manner as free and open source software (FOSS). Open source hardware is part of the open source culture movement and applies a like concept to a variety of components. The term usually means that information about the hardware is easily discerned. Hardware design (i.e. mechanical drawings, schematics, bill of materials, PCB layout data, HDL source code and integrated circuit layout data) in addition to the software that drives the hardware are all released with the FOSS approach.

  4. 4. HARDWARE EXAMPLES
  5. 5. Arduino• Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Its intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. http://www.arduino.cc/
  6. 6. BeagleBoard• The BeagleBoard is a low-power, low- cost single-board computer produced by Texas Instruments in association with Digi-Key. The BeagleBoard was designed with open source development in mind, and as a way of demonstrating the Texas Instruments OMAP3530 system-on- a-chip. The board was developed by a small team of TI engineers as an educational board that could be used in colleges around the world to teach open source hardware and open source software capabilities. http://beagleboard.org/
  7. 7. Android Open Accessory Kit• The Android 3.1 platform (also backported to Android 2.3.4) introduces Android Open Accessory support, which allows external USB hardware (an Android USB accessory) to interact with an Android-powered device in a special "accessory" mode.http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/usb/adk.h tml

  11. 11. Google I/O 2011 Keynote Day 1Open Accessory Kit integrated with exercise bike, shared performance data and gamification! Giant-sized Labyrinthhttp://www.engadget.com/2011/05/10/google-announces-android-open-accessory-standard-arduino-based/
  12. 12. Technology innovation is starting to explodeand having open-source material out therereally helps this explosion. You get studentsand researchers involved and you get peoplecoming through and building start ups basedon open source products. Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Founder
