OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE BOARD
OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE BOARD TRAINING INSTITUTE – Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design. Open source hardware gives people the freedom to control their technology while sharing knowledge and encouraging commerce through the open exchange of designs.
The first hardware focused “open source” activities were started around 1997 by Bruce Perens, creator of the Open Source Definition, By the mid 2000s open source hardware again became a hub of activity due to the emergence of several major open source hardware projects. Open source hardware is a remix, remake, re-manufacture, resell, redistribute, study and learn.
Why open source hardware boards?
All open hardware must be accompanied by documentation, including design files and source code. In addition, the license governing the reproduction of open hardware must allow modification and distribution of those design files in a way that allows others to easily obtain them. This makes possible—and even encourages—studying, troubleshooting, modifying, and improving open hardware open hardware is all about making the object as easy to remix and reproduce as possible.
Types of Open source hardware board:
- Raspberry Pi
- Intel Galileo
Arduino board is an open-source platform used to make electronics projects. It consists of both a micro controller and a part of the software or Integrated Development Environment(IDE) that runs on your PC.
It was in the year 2005 that the first ever Arduino board was born in the classrooms of the Interactive Design Institute in Ivrea, Italy. The Arduino, created by Massimo Banzi and other founders, ardunio is a tiny, easy-to-use open-source micro controller that’s inspired thousands of people around the world to make the coolest things they can imagine from toys to satellite gear. The platform of an Arduino has become very famous with designers or students just starting out with electronics, and for an excellent cause.
The Arduino software is very simple to use for beginners, yet flexible adequate for advanced users. It runs on windows, Linux and Mac. This board started altering to adapt new requirements and challenges, separating its present from 8-bit boards to products for IoT (Internet of Things) applications. Compare to other micro controllers, Arduino is a development board which comes with different peripherals like I2C, SPI and PWM etc
TYPES OF ARDUINO:
- Arduino Uno
- Arduino Mega
- Arduino Leonardo
- Arduino Mini
- Arduino Nano
- Arduino Lily-pad
FEATURES OF ARDUINO:
- Cross-platform – The Arduino software runs on Windows, Macintosh OSX, and Linux operating systems. Most microcontroller systems are limited to Windows.
- Simple, user friendly programming environment
- Open source and extensible software
- Arduino board supports I2C and SPI communication
- Arduino board supports USB connectivity
- Arduino board consists of dual serial communication
- Very convenient power management and in built voltage regulation
- Gameduino, an Arduino shield to create retro 2D video games
- ArduinoPhone, a do-it-yourself cellphone
- Water quality testing platform
- Automatic titration system based on Arduino and stepper motor[
- Low cost data glove for virtual reality applications
- Impedance sensor system to detect bovine milk adulteration
- Homemade CNC using Arduino and DC motors with close loop control by Homofaciens
- DC motor control using Arduino and H-Bridge
