Submission + - raspberry pi - its hard to make an i/o expansion board a commercial success (utelectronics.com) 1

waterwingz writes: Today we learned about one of the first casualties of a group trying to make a business providing support hardware for the raspberry pi. The basic board has a lot of capability but it will take something like what this group was trying to do before it will compete with the arduino.

    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 http://www.utelectronics.com/download/utelectronics.zip [utelectronics.com]

    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 !!
