Wayne and Layne, LLC makes open source hardware, which means all the schematics, PCB artwork, and source code are provided under open licenses. You’re encouraged to make modifications, with the caveat that if you release your modifications, you need to tell people how to make the same modifications.
One of the distinguishing aspects of our kits is the clear and engaging explanations. One of the underlying principles of open source hardware is the ability for others to make modifications and release them. We foster this ability wholeheartedly, through our choice of licensing, file formats, and tools, and our down-to-earth explanations. We want to help anyone interested in this exciting field get the foundation they need.
