There isn’t a good way for people to collaborate on OSHW projects. In the software community there are sites like Git hub and SourceForge. While hardware does not fit into the same mold, we believe that we can create a space that will allow people to share ideas and designs in a similar way.
As with every discipline, hardware has its own rich and unique lexicon associated with it. These include specific language, block diagrams, systematics and mathematical equations. We are going to facilitate the use of this kind of information by integrating our tool into the community.
Have you ever tried to find how other people use a part? Want to find a good DC to DC converter? Well this is where you will be able to find it. We are putting together a kick ass parts library, and we want to share it with you. We will be making it easier for you to find the parts that you are looking for and provide some examples of how that the part is being used.
Have you always wanted to make a digital clock that displayed in binary? Cool, so does Steve. Our How To section will be the place to find this and much more. With step by step instructions, and a parts list to boot we will have you reading 1’s and 0’s in no time.
Why We Can Do it Better?
That is the pride and joy of Upverter. We can do it better because we have a kick ass web based EDA tool. It can be used to described ideas better than anywhere else. We are going to bring the electrical engineering lexicon to the web so that everyone can troubleshoot together, show off cool project and kick ass hacks. We can do it better because we are bringing a new element to the table, we are adding a way to relay information.
