KiwiSDR is an open source and open hardware software-defined radio (SDR) covering shortwave, the longwave & AM broadcast bands, various utility stations, and amateur radio transmissions, world-wide, in the spectrum from 10 kHz to 30 MHz. The KiwiSDR is a custom circuit board you connect to an inexpensive BeagleBone Black or Green computer.
Makerville Knit is Knit is an industrial grade Wi-Fi development board to build secure connected applications. It is based on the 88MW300 SoC from Marvell.
The Micropendous boards were Development Boards for Atmel’s USB AVR Microcontrollers with a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) hardware, firmware, and software development platform. They were designed for USB peripheral and hosting development.
MobilECG is an USB-based open source 12-lead clinical electrocardiograph.
It is designed to meet all the relevant medical standards (ISO 60601-1, etc.). Smaller than most ECGs on the market, and also has superior signal quality. Works with PCs, notebooks, and Android tablets. Records all leads simultaneously.
An offline password keeper project created by and for the Hackaday community.
This adaptor has multiple overlapping footprints for any occasion: up to 28 pin SOIC/SO (1.27mm pitch), up to 28-pin SSOP/TSSOP (0.65mm pitch), up to four SOT23, up to three SC70, one MSOP-10 (0.5mm pitch), one SOT223, and one SOT-143. All in a 0.8" wide DIP board. The header pins are staggered to allow press-fitting them while soldering.
The Opsis is a powerful FPGA-based open source video platform for videographers and visual artists and designed to give the user complete control over high-speed video, enabling everything from real-time conference capturing solutions, to experimental visual art and even general FPGA-based video research.
Created in collaboration between the Numato Lab and TimVideos.us live event streaming project, the Opsis is the ideal device for the HDMI2USB.tv video capturing firmware, which allows for “fool-proof” video recording from any computer.
RabbitMax Flex is an open source Raspberry Pi HAT for IoT prototyping and home automation applications. It has infrared receiver and transmitter, relay, buzzer, button, RGB LED and UART pins for debugging. The board also supports 1602 LCD display module and up to 5 I2C sensors.
Saturn is an easy to use FPGA Development board featuring Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA. Saturn is specially designed for experimenting and learning system design with FPGAs.
This development board features Xilinx XC6SLX series FPGA with FTDI’s FT2232H Dual-Channel USB device. The high speed USB 2.0 interface provides fast and easy configuration download to the on-board SPI flash. No programmer or special downloader cable is needed to download the bit stream to the board.
