radxa rock pro/lite is OSHW now
I am proudly to announce that we have open sourced the hardware design of rock pro/lite, completely. This is really a brave step for us especially here in Shenzhen, China, considering that someone is just copying and pasting our wiki to theirs, some fly board is just be made like our style. The owner of Olimex, an OSHW company once said, there is no real open source hardware from China. Now, i want to say, hey, we make open source hardware and we are from China.
Why do we decide to become an OSHW project now? Because recently some innovative local startup/company comes to us(such as the open smart glass project, INMOTION Self Balancing Veh), looking for collaboration opportunity. Every other day, there is a request like that! (It also tell us that how a low cost, good support, ready for commercial project hardware platform matters.) We are really a small team with four people(update Dec 26, 2014: now eight people :). Manufacturing the rock pro, maintaining the software, supporting customers already made us very busy. We can not help people with their project but we can help them lower the risk of making their own board. So we release the hardware design file completely. These files are being made thousands of board already and proven working for us. We hope it also helpful and working for you.
The released hardware files can be found at github: https://github.com/radxa/oshw
