In the Beginning

What the heck is this place?
So Cina, Nate, and a guy named Aubry were all working on similar cellular projects using the GM862 Cellular Module but each project was different enough that we could not collaborate directly. However, we noticed that there was enough overlap between projects that certain things should be shared. Things like the audio biasing circuit, the power supply, and the footprint for various exotic parts. We wanted an easy way to share this information with others as well, and the concept of Open Circuits was born.

We got the framework up (Cina is a pimp) in about 24hours. Even if you are completely new to Wikis, we're sure you'll find things fairly straight forward. Please use the following template (edit this change and copy/paste) into your posting as a starting point.

Note: As you can see from the history of this site at Help:Contents, the User:Chazegh originally set up this site.

The Engine

The Wiki Engine is: Welcome to MediaWiki.org There is a lot of info on working with the Wiki there.

Want to know How to delete spam?


Cam Files

Why can't I upload a *.cam file. It is used by Eagle for cam processors. There should be a better why to get help than posting to this page. --Linuxvolts 19:58, 23 May 2007 (PDT)

Would also be useful to upload zip files, these could contain any file type or archives of several file types. Probably should be a file size limit. russ_hensel feb '08.


c code

How would I add my c code for my processor? Answer: C or other code that is just text can be put on any page, formatting may be a bit funny but anyone can cut and paste the code into their editor. For more complicated projects with multiple files a zip file capibility ( not available now ) would be nice russ_hensel.

Upload Graphic Files

Upload with "upload file" link on left margin on most pages.

Messages to Users

Try to keep public discussions, go to the user's talk page and put a message there. ( how do you get there: go to the user's page, press discussion at the top of page. ) If a discussion is more general go to the topic and then press discussion. See: BackRoomDecision
