Open Source Hardware section on Mouser Electronics @mouserelec
Open Source Hardware @ Mouser Electronics. We saw this as a press release today but could not find the link/section immediately, we think this is it. Open source hardware is now part of Mouser, that’s pretty cool –
Open Source Hardware (OSHW) refers to non-proprietary electronics designs that anyone may duplicate or modify without penalty and offers modular, ready-made, and easily customizable embedded hardware solutions. A new Open Source Hardware site at Mouser is organized to help engineers quickly find the development platform with the technology that suits their project.
Mouser acknowledges that there are varying degrees of ‘openness’ in open-source, yet there is no easy way to determine or show this, therefore hardware self-identified as open-source hardware is offered, with more to come, says the company.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
