Open Source Hardware section on Mouser Electronics @mouserelec

Open Source Hardware @ Mouser Electronics. We saw this as a press release today but could not find the link/section immediately, we think this is it. Open source hardware is now part of Mouser, that’s pretty cool -

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) refers to non-proprietary electronics designs that anyone may duplicate or modify without penalty and offers modular, ready-made, and easily customizable embedded hardware solutions. A new Open Source Hardware site at Mouser is organized to help engineers quickly find the development platform with the technology that suits their project.

The new site is designed to make it easy to find the best open-source board for a project by allowing quick comparison of open-source hardware available from Mouser. Also, there is a listing of recommended products and feature articles entitled ‘The Future of Open Source Hardware’ and ‘A Comparison of Open Source Hardware’.

Mouser acknowledges that there are varying degrees of ‘openness’ in open-source, yet there is no easy way to determine or show this, therefore hardware self-identified as open-source hardware is offered, with more to come, says the company.
