Adam Sampson talks about an LED display on a pair of concurrencyCC boards. Amazingly this is driven by some 20 Occam processes running on a modified Arduino with only 2K of RAM. We'll learn more at tonight's Open Source Hardware UG.

Omer had some scrap dev boards for experimenting soldering surface mount components. I was too fried to try!

Handsets registered to our local GSM network. was held in what could be a James Bond villan's lair.

I can't begin to describe my joy at seeing Occam running on a number of interconnected Arduino based boards.

GSM base station transceiver.

The software/hardware duality of XMOS platform means this single generic chip can process mouse, keyboard, USB, Network as well as driving a display all from a single chip. Amazing!

A 555 Timer, a capacitor, a resistor to make an LED breath in and out. It's a bit squished after being in my rucksack. This project is documented on SolderPad.

"Hardware development methods are about a decade, possibly two behind software ones" — true! "Hardware development people don't communicate too well both at the human level and the engineering level" — harsh, but fair, but as Saar explained, this is mainly due to the lack of tools with mechanisms for interchange, version control and the equivalent of agile processes:

A great first talk at the first OSHUG from David May, of Transputer and Occam and now of XMOS fame.

The amazing Open Hardware board running Occam-π via the Transterpreter project.

Al's first attempt at using the hotplate for surface mounting, kept to show some of the pitfalls of using such very small components at home!

A conductive mesh, similar to that used on microwave oven doors the size of the perforations in the mesh are much less than the microwaves' wavelength, most of the microwave radiation cannot pass through the door, while visible light (with a much shorter wavelength) can. at Open Source Hardware User Group, event #9 - Chips (Programmable Logic, Computer Conservation with FPGAs, OpenCores & OpenRISC 1000) at Skills Matter, Clerkenwell, London

The IBM 360 Model 30 circuit diagrams used unconventional symbols and nomenclature.

for our session we worked on the story of breadboarding a project using kits donated by, documenting them in an EDA tool (Eagel, KiCad, DesignSparkPCB or Fritzing) and uploading them to
