Mouser launches open source hardware site
Global authorized distributor Mouser Electronics Inc. has updated its popular Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Technology site, providing developers with the resources they need to quickly learn about the latest advances in open source hardware, and the newest open source hardware products.
The newly enhanced site, available on Mouser.com, reduces time spent selecting the best OSHW boards by providing days’ worth of research in one convenient location. The updated Product Selector is now an even more powerful tool, allowing developers to quickly select a board using a visual matrix of important features.
Different parameters can be selected and sorted including processor type and speed, memory and expansion capabilities, wireless and wired networking, user interface options, video connectivity, and more. Online materials includes user guides, PCB files, schematics, and complete documentation. Supporting software for each board is available for fast, direct download.
Under the Hardware section is a listing of available OSHW boards by category, including the newest Arduino and Arduino-compatible, BeagleBoard, Intel, and TI LaunchPad boards. The site makes it easy to find related hardware such as BeagleBone Capes, Arduino Shields and other useful accessories. In the Featured Products section, developers can find the newest OSHW boards including the Intel Edison miniature computer, Texas Instruments MSP-EXP432 LaunchPad, and the Arduino Lilypad for wearables.
