Why the open source hardware will change the Science
A year has already gone by the launch of openQCM and there are many things to tell. When we have tried as private company, the way of the open source by launching one of the first scientific analytical instrument in the world completely open hardware, we would never have imagined this level of success. […]
openQCM community develops and shares the new electronic design using KiCAD
openQCM Quartz Crystal Microbalance electronic design is finally released using the free software KiCAD. Thanks to Martin Zalazar, Christian Mista and all the guys working at the Lab of electronic prototyping and 3D printing of the Universidad Nacional de Entre Ríos UNER – Argentina Great thanks for being an active part of the openQCM community […]
Sweet openQCM Tasting Water Sucrose Solutions
I’d like to share openQCM Quartz Crystal Microbalance frequency behaviour in contact with water solutions at different weight percent of sucrose.
openQCM frequency stability of quartz crystal microbalance in typical experimental conditions
We are now testing the performances of two different openQCM devices in the most typical experimental conditions in order to measure the frequency stability of the open source quartz crystal microbalance.
openQCM news and press review
The openQCM is really proud to share the latest reviews about the open source quartz crystal microbalance. This is also the opportunity to give thanks to people supporting the openQCM project.
openQCM has Arduino inside at heart
openQCM is the fully open source quartz crystal microbalance project with an Arduino electronic board inside its heart
openQCM the Java application for developers
In this post I discuss in detail the development of Java application for the open source quartz crystal microbalance openQCM. This post is intended for developers and contributors of the open source project. The entire project is available on github repository at this link
openQCM the benefit and challenge of an open hardware project
Hi everybody, This is my first post on the openQCM blog, so I introduce myself. I am Marco, scientific coordinator at Novaetech S.r.l. and now co-founder of the openQCM project the unique open source quartz crystal microbalance. Above all I am a lucky man because I really enjoy my work.
Why an Open-Source Quartz Crystal Microbalance ?
[pullquote]I do open source because it’s fun and it works… Companies who work with the kernel community will waste less time and they’ll just work better. Linus Torvalds [/pullquote] Hello, in a few days we will launch our first scientific Open Hardware product. I therefore believe it is appropriate, as first post to introduce and explain the […]
