Standardisation is an important component in the maturation of any field of technology. It contributes to the formation of a recognisable identity and enables interactions with a wider community. This article reviews past and current standardisation initiatives in the field of Open Source Hardware (OSH). While early initiatives focused on aspects such as licencing, intellectual property and documentation formats, recent efforts extend to ways for users to exercise their rights under open… Expand
Mapping the types of modularity in open-source hardware
Abstract The importance of intangible code modularity in open-source software, as well as of tangible product modularity in proprietary hardware, is widely acknowledged. Nevertheless, modularity inExpand
Harnessing the Benefits of Open Electronics in Science
TLDR
How electronic applications, from the experimental to the theoretical sciences, can help individual researchers by increasing the customization, efficiency, and scalability of experiments, while improving data quantity and quality is discussed. Expand
IDENTIFYING THE FACTORS AFFECTING THE REPLICABILITY OF OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE DESIGNS
TLDR
This study investigates what other factors may influence replicability of an OSH, and identifies and describes factors which relate to the documentation, the design and the context of the person replicating the hardware. Expand
