What fuels many, if not most, of the open hardware we usually see in the community? OSH Park! OSH Park is a community ordering service for high quality, lead free printed circuit boards manufactured in the USA, shipped free worldwide. Purple, $5 per square inch … From the about page

We produce high quality bare printed circuit boards, focused on the needs of prototyping, hobby design, and light production. All our services offer purple soldermask over bare copper (SMOBC) and an Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold (ENIG) finish. These are suitable for a lead-free reflow process, and are RoHS compliant.

Community
Proudly serving the open hardware community, helping hobbyists, tinkerers, and businesses bring their ideas to life.

High Quality
High precision boards suitable for industrial, aerospace, and medical applications, ready to plug into your weekend project.

Made in the USA
Our purple boards are manufactured in the USA and shipped free to anywhere in the world.

Check out OSH Park all of their services, blog, instagram, facebook, and twitter.

Here’s our interview with James “Laen” Neal from OSH Park from 2014 (video) and an interview I did with Laen back in 2012 at MAKE Magazine, “Laen, Open Source Hardware Hero.”

Open source hardware month @ Adafruit:


Ohm

October is open-source hardware month! Every single day in October we’ll be posting up some open-source stories from the last decade (and more!) about open-source hardware, open-source software, and beyond!

Have an open-source hardware (or software) success story? A person, company, or project to celebrate? An open-source challenge? Post up here in the comments or email opensource@adafruit.com, we’ll be looking for, and using the tag #OHM2019 online as well! Check out all the events going on here!


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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
