In today’s competitive market, one key to success is having technology that can meet all of your project requirements. While not all companies use Open Source Hardware, for smaller startups it might be something to consider since there are several benefits to doing so such as increased reliability, development speed, and decreased overhead. If you are in the market for an open source board to use for your next project, we have compared 4 different companies who, we believe, produce some of the top open source technologies.

As you may have seen in our previous post, in celebration of the new OrCAD Capture design compare feature (made available in the 17.2 release) we launched a “Spot the Difference” Contest where one lucky winner receives a Raspberry Pi 3 Board and a 16GB, 10class with NOOBs. In order to enter this contest, entrants were asked to identify 10 differences between two schematics made available through a downloadable PDF and email us their results. In addition, they were also able to earn additional entries by either following us on Twitter or Tweeting about the giveaway.

Have you ever wanted to simulate a design with existing hardware? Sure you can create a stimulus of what you expect from the hardware then simulate in PSpice, but sometimes there’s no substitute to the real thing. Ideally what engineers want is a blend of virtual and physical prototyping—something possible in PSpice. Since many IoT innovators use inexpensive development boards to develop their idea, I thought it would be instructive to show how one can develop new hardware in OrCAD and PSpice, then integrate the simulation with real sensors driven by an Arduino board.
