  • Version 2.0 of the CERN Open Hardware Licence has been released, introducing three variants meant to cater to different collaborative models

    CERN Open Hardware Licence (OHL) is a legal framework to facilitate knowledge exchange on hardware design. Several years after its first publication in 2011, CERN released version 2.0 of the CERN Open Hardware Licence (CERN-OHL) in 2020, which governs the use, copying, modification and distribution of hardware design documentation, and the manufacture and distribution of any resulting products. The latest version uses simpler terminology, introduces three variants of the licence, and broadens its range to include designs that go from artistic to mechanical to electronic, as well as adapting the licence to cases such as application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). It can even be used to license software.

  • Arduino also providing Portenta Carrier board that will add extra capabilities to your H7 board

    1578338065-portentacarrier-1.jpg

    The Portenta Carrier exposes all of the extra capabilities of the processor on your microcontroller board through connectors and peripherals that do not physically fit on it. There are connectors for USB, RJ-45, CAN bus, audio in and out lines, camera, DisplayPort, etc.

    This design expands the default communication ports of Portenta boards to other wired and wireless protocols. Gigabit Ethernet will let you transform your board into a dedicated access point, a network drive, or even a serial-to-ethernet bridge. Adding a SIM card to the board makes it possible to connect to NBIoT or GPRS networks. Thanks to its LoRa connectivity you can design your own gateway to host your wireless sensor network.

    Adding an 8-bit camera sensor to the Portenta Carrier camera connector will help you implement any kind of computer vision application. And if the onboard computing power is not enough, you could enhance your board’s AI capabilities by adding state-of-the-art Machine Learning modules through the Carrier’s miniPCI connector (like Google’s Coral unit of computation).
