I’m Matt, mild mannered electrical engineer by day(yes, I have a day job), nerdy electronics designer by night. I’m designing open source hardware. I do all the hardware design and write the code all by my lonesome. My first project was the Rockit 8 Bit Synth. Next came it’s little brother Sprockit. But stay tuned, I’ve got a bag of ideas. If you want to drop me a note, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m open to all ideas. If you want to help with this blog or have some interesting ideas for projects, let me know.
I started this blog for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted to publicize my creations and have a venue to sell them. But as I worked on my designs, I discovered another reason. I searched far and wide for answers to my many design dilemmas and could never find any good help on the internet. It seems like there is in-depth design information at the very technical level and then there’s a lot of lousy information on the low end which is often poorly written or just plain wrong. There are few sources for quality usable electronics design information outside of textbooks. I’m trying to provide the knowledge I gain the free use it deserves. I’ve found in the process that I enjoy the opportunity to write and to kick a little knowledge. I hope you find some of it useful!
