Freetronics designs and builds sensor modules, interface boards and
microcontroller boards for hobbyists to use in their projects. Their
products are open source hardware and software, and are compatible
with the Arduino ecosystem. Freetronics designs have been used in home
automation projects, scientific experiments, art exhibitions, and
educational satellites sent into space! If you can imagine it,
Freetronics wants to help you build it.
Freetronics was created in early 2010 by Practical Arduino co-author
Jonathan Oxer and electronics engineer Marc Alexander as a result of a
deluge of requests for kits, parts, and other odds and ends relating
to the book. Since then they’ve launched a number of products and are
busily creating more, following the Open Source principles of sharing
designs to let other people build on Freetronics’ work just as
Freetronics has built on the work of others.
