Transcript

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