    It is really a very nice gesture for them to release all their schematics and gerbers to the world for free

    The files can be have at []

    Kudos to them for their kindness !!

    Hope that others can utilize and maybe even make enhancement on what has been released - similar to what had happened some 3 decades ago when the first personal computer made its first appearance, and the world gets to reap the benefits

    May the future generations get to reap the benefits of the kind gesture from folks of UT Electronics

    Kudos !!
