Electronic Components

A new standard for open electronics design-data, that will focus on design information and documentation of electronics components, assemblies and sub-assemblies.

Electronic Components Goals


Improve ease of repair of electronics through documentation.


Adapt and repurpose electronics hardware through study of design information and to promote interoperability of software tooling.


Share standardised design documentation for manufacturing leading to more reproducable hardware.


Map the availability of required components, tools and skills for production and repair through compatibility with the Open Know-Where Specification.
