Teardown hardware hacking con starts today in Portland

Teardown hardware con in Portland next week

Teardown is new hardware con happening in Portland on May 11th – 13th:

teardown-collage-02_png_project-tile (1)

Teardown is an event put on by Crowd Supply in association with Make+Think+Code @ PNCA. You can think of Teardown as live-action Crowd Supply, but with fewer cardboard boxes and packing peanuts. We’ll be bringing together hardware aficionados from around the world to celebrate, inspect, create, and, of course, tear down hardware. There will be long-time Crowd Supply creators and backers, as well as people we’re meeting for the first time. There will be hardware, art, food, drink, puzzles, workshops, tutorials, talks, music, field trips, and friends. Most of all, there will be ideas and projects to explore and inspire. We hope you’ll be there too!

BeagleWire: fully open ICE40 FPGA BeagleBone cape

BeagleWire by Michael Welling is a fully open ICE40 FPGA BeagleBone cape:

BeagleWire: fully open ICE40 FPGA BeagleBone cape

BeagleWire is a completely open source FPGA development board. Unlike most other FPGA dev boards, the BeagleWire’s hardware, software, and FPGA toolchain are completely open source.  The BeagleWire is a Beaglebone compatible cape leveraging the Lattice iCE40HX FPGA.

BeagleWire can be easily expanded by adding additional external modules for example, modules for high speed data acquisition, software defined radio, and advanced control applications. Using well-known connectors like Pmod and Grove makes it possible to connect various interesting external modules widely available in stores. Owing to this, prototyping new imaginative digital designs is easier.

A Smaller, Cheaper RISC V Board

Early this year, the world of electronics saw something amazing. The RISC-V, the first Open Source microcontroller was implemented in silicon, and we got an Arduino-derived dev board in the form of the HiFive 1. The HiFive 1 is just a bit shy of mindblowing; it’s a very fast microcontroller that’s right up there with…

OnChip Open-V Arduino Compatibility

OnChip has posted a Crowd Supply update on their plans for Arduino compatibility:

Open-V Arduino Compatibility

Arduino compatibility can mean a lot of things to a lot of different people, so we’ll try to be as concrete and specific as possible. For the Open-V, Arduino development tools, and interoperating on a hardware level with existing Arduino shields.

wire-bonds-zoomed_jpg_project-body.jpg

We’ve updated our live, web-streamed demos to include an Arduino mode in addition to the assembler and C modes we already have. You might also notice the relatively new Blockly modes and a refined layout of the demo page. Go write some code and see the results live streamed!
