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