Autodesk buys EAGLE. Wow! What could this mean for Eagle? If Fusion360 is any indicator then I absolutely love this announcement. I have rarely used Eagle since CircuitMaker was released but this could get really interesting.

Premier Farnell today announces that, together with its wholly owned subsidiary Celdis Limited, it has completed the sale of Cadsoft Computer GmbH (“Cadsoft”) and the assets used in connection with the sale of Cadsoft products in the US (together “the Business) to a subsidiary of Autodesk Inc.

BBB on a chip, anyone?

BTW, +GHI Electronics is a partner with Octavo and is making a dev board for it (coming soon).

Not sure but I can't imagine why you would want to consider doing it yourself with this available. My bet is it's at least an 8 layer PCB. Their volume is probably such that there's no way you would make it yourself cheaper. And that's even if you get it right the first time.

10 year battery life IoT module coming. Something to keep any eye out for in the fall.
Many IoT applications like utilities metering, white goods, asset tracking, and agricultural and environmental monitoring frequently need to be constantly connected albeit low data rates are sufficient. For this kind of applications, Swiss wireless modules provider u-blox has developed the SARA-N2 Narrowband IoT module. SARA-N2 is the world’s first cellular radio module compliant to the 3GPP Release 13, Narrowband IoT (LTE Cat. NB1) standard. It ...

This is cool. Anyone know where I can get a good deal on 6000 arcade buttons :D
AnyPixel.js is an open-source software and hardware library that makes it possible to use the web to create big, unusual, interactive displays out of all kinds of things. Anyone can fork the code and the schematics to create their own display at any scale.
