Why The Time is Right for Open Source Hardware and ‘Chips as a Service’

August 28, 2017, anysilicon

Direction uncertainty with a landscape of confused tangled roads and highways and a group of traffic signs competing for influence as a symbol of the challenges of planning a strategy for success.

The open source software movement has been credited as a key driver of the birth of the Internet Age. Without developments such as Linux; the free Apache Web-server platform; and tools such as Java, Perl and Ruby, the Web as we know it would likely not have been possible.

A linear voltage regulator is a circuit that takes in a variable input voltage and provides a continuously controlled, steady, low-noise DC output voltage. Generally, linear voltage regulators require a large voltage drop between the input and the output to function correctly. This requires a relatively high-voltage input power supply
