Open source design promoted on distributor's community site

July 10, 2013 // By Julien Happich
Distributor RS Components has launched its 'Open Source Design Centre', a comprehensive free guide to open source electronics design hosted on designspark.com, the company’s online resource for electronics design engineers.

The Open Source Design Centre brings together all of the elements involved in open source design in a single, easy-to-access reference point. It provides reliable information on matters ranging from open source licensing guidelines to advice on hardware and software management. Its aim is to educate engineers in open source design, and to aid and encourage their active participation in open source design projects.
RS has developed the Open Source Design Centre in cooperation with Andrew Back, a leading industry expert in open source hardware and founding member of the Open Source Hardware User Group (OSHUG), the UK’s leading open source hardware group established in 2010.
