Welcome to Open Circuits.

Open Circuits is a wiki for sharing electronics knowledge, schematics, board layouts, and parts libraries.

Key Points of Interest[edit]

Neighbors[edit]

The WikiNode project tries to link every wiki in the world together. Our "WikiNode" links to closely-related wiki (and their WikiNode links back).

If you want to talk about something that is not quite on-topic here at Open Circuits (say, "desktop PC case modding", or "embedded Linux programming"), our WikiNode helps you find another wiki where people love to talk about that exact topic. The corresponding WikiNode on each of those wiki helps people who want to talk about "open hardware" to discover this wiki.

Medical Electronics[edit]

Open Hardware Cell Phone[edit]

Other Open Wireless Communications[edit]

  • Amateur Radio Wiki - Online Encyclopedia for Hams
  • WSN, the Wireless Sensor Network Wiki - discusses wireless sensor networks. (wired sensor network discussion is also tolerated :-).
  • RONJA Wiki (offline as of 2008-03-02) - Reasonable Optical Near Joint Access, Free Space Optics device[1]. ("free technology" is the same as "open hardware", right?)
  • OpenWRT Wiki - "OpenWrt is an open source project to create a free embedded operating system for network devices."
  • NFC Tools - libnfc and other open-source projects for near-field communication (NFC).

Microcontrollers[edit]

Computer Architecture[edit]

We briefly touch on computer architecture on a few Open Circuits pages. ( Kestrel, Multi-purpose Embedded System, relay CPU ). For far more details, see other wikis such as

Vehicles, Robots, and CNC[edit]

  • RepRap Wiki - discusses the RepRap project to build a "Replicating Rapid-prototyper", a self-copying 3D printer. "Complete open-source instructions and plans are published on this website for zero cost and available to everyone so, if you want to make one yourself, you can."
  • EVProduction - discusses several electric open source vehicles.
  • OpenServo Wiki - developing a digital servo motor that accepts "Go to position X" commands and also more complex curves, and returns actual servo position, speed, voltage and power consumption.
  • Robotics wiki (offline as of 2007-07-07, Internet Archive capture)
  • PMinMO Wiki - describes an open-source CNC machine—software, electronics, motors, hardware, etc.—and related information, such as CNC PCB milling. (was: [2] ) needs WikiNode

The open-hardware electronics connects gyros, magnetometers, accelerometers, GPS reciever, RC reciever, etc., and drives 2, 4, 6, or 8 rotors in a variety of configurations to give autolevel and auto altitude control and stabilized RC control.
  • MultiWii - software to control a RC multi copter, supports various sensors but was initially developed to support Nintendo Wii console gyroscopes and accelerometers

  • OpenCircuitDesign - the other Open Circuit Wiki, discusses mostly free tools for designing integrated circuits
  • Open Component Project - a shared repository of public domain symbols, footprints, and 3D component models for use in electronic design automation (EDA) software.

Dorkbot[edit]

Artists, inventors, scientists, engineers. The exciting thing to me is to learn about strange things that creative people are doing around the world, with no regard for genre, style, school of thought, area of expertise, etc. ... committed to the idea of "availability over promotion", meaning their main concern is to help things exist, rather than making hits or selling lots of copies.

CPU[edit]

Various small CPU modules that have their own wiki (see also ARMUS Embedded Linux Board and other motherboards that run Linux)

  • eLinux - information on running Linux on several small ARM-based embedded systems and Texas Instruments OMAP processors.
