Our goal is to release a new open source hardware project every month. This is a list of our projects that are currently in production. You can also see in development projects, and stuff we never got around to finishing. All the files and documentation are open source, feel free to reuse and share them. If you'd like to build a project yourself, free PCBs might be available.

Bus BlasterBus-blaster-cover-shot2-W250.jpgAn open source JTAG programmer and debugger with high-speed USB 2.0. Buffered interface works with targets from 1.2volts to 3.3volts. Bus Blaster v2 is available for $34.95.
Bus PirateBpv3-side-450-W250.jpgFor every hardware hacker, there's the Bus Pirate. Figure out a new chip without writing code, program AVR microcontrollers, and more. Forget elegant abstraction, learn about electronic interfaces at a very low level. Get your own Bus Pirate for $30, including worldwide shipping.

Grab a Bus Pirate probe cable kit for $4.99 and Bus Pirate LCD adapter v2 for $9 at the same time!

Open Bench Logic SnifferOls-short-W250.jpgOpen Bench Logic Sniffer is an open source logic analyzer. It’s designed to support the SUMP logic analyzer software at the lowest possible cost. Get your own assembled Open Logic Sniffer for $50, including worldwide shipping.
USB Infrared ToyUsb-irtoy-v2-W250.jpgThis infrared hacking tool can visualize infrared signals with logic analyzer software, record and replay infrared signals, and decode them. You can get an assembled USB IR Toy for $20, including worldwide shipping.
Web PlatformWebplatformv11-overview-W250.jpgThe Web Platform is a tiny server designed for networked hacks where a full PC is inconvenient. This business card size internet appliance can connect to web services, control physical objects from a browser interface, or email sensor status reports; no PC intermediary required! Web Platform is available assembled for $40, including worldwide shipping.
ATX breakout board bench supply160px-ATX BB HW.jpgRecycle an old ATX computer power supply into a beefy bench supply with -12, 3.3, 5, and 12 volt outputs.[$14.00].
Logic Shrimp logic analyzerLogic-shrimp-v1-250.jpgA medium speed, low cost logic analyzer with 256K samples and 20MHz top speed.Available for $37.48, including worldwide shipping.
CPLD: Complex programmable logic devicesXc9572-cpld-breakoutvib-W250.jpg XC9572XL and XC2C64A (CoolRunner-II) CPLD development boards. Simple development boards with a heap of schematic, Verilog, and VHDL tutorials. Available now for $15 each.
