  1. 1. Hardware: The New Open Source Driving InnovationTod Kurt @todbotCo-founderThingM
  2. 2. Fast Product Design with OSHW Tod E. Kurt, ThingM Hardware Innovation Workshop 16 May 2012, Xerox PARC
  3. 3. Who Am I?
  4. 4. Who Am I?
  5. 5. How is Open Source Useful forHardware Development? free exchange of ideasleverage the cleverness of others
  6. 6. But Mostly... you save timeAnd, you get to work with others And, it’s fun
  7. 7. Hardware Design Process• Ideation / Product Design• Hardware design / Schematic & Layout• Product Visualization• Firmware & Software
  8. 8. Example Product: blink(1)
  9. 9. IdeationLook to similar devices for inspiration
  10. 10. Schematic & Board LayoutExplore different chips, different layouts Choose one, or all, to get PCB fabbed
  11. 11. VisualizationSketchUp + EagleUp
  12. 12. VisualizationSketchUp + CAD import
  13. 13. Visualization & Usability 3D printouts w/ Makerbot
  14. 14. Software & Firmware blink(1)USB pipeline not your problem
  15. 15. FirmwareOpen devtools for many chipsets Atmel AVR: Arduino & AVR-GCC TI MSP430: MSPGCC Microchip PIC: SDCC
  16. 16. USB stacksOpen USB stacks are growing too: V-USB (AVR/sw) LUFA (AVR/hw) 16FUSB (PIC/sw) Dangerous Prototypes (PIC/hw)
  17. 17. Application APIsSome open & cross platform toolkits: Processing / Java WxWidgets GCC HTML5 / Node.js But better to go native
  18. 18. What’s Difficult Still?“Last mile” to screen & keyboard Atoms (enclosures, etc)
  19. 19. The UpsideIdea to functional prototype in 2 weeks Multiple design studies on multiple chip architecturesManufactureable in a month
  20. 20. Giving Back Publish! your company blog Get the makers on your sideThey’re early adopters, recommenders
  21. 21. Thank You@thingm / @todbothttp://thingm.com/http://todbot.com/blog/
