element14 Community’s Open Source
Open source hardware allows people
the opportunity to control the technology
and share their knowledge through a free
exchange. element14’s open source offering
includes volumes of information on the most
popular single board computers (SBCs) like
Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black. The
program strives to educate engineers via free
tools and the opportunity to work with other
engineers to fast track prototyping and offer
access to technologies from major silicon
BB60A Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer / RF
This broadband, real-time spectrum analyzer
(RTSA) is powered and controlled solely over
USB 3.0 link and a PC with an Intel Core® i7
processor. The BB60A circumvents the tradi-
tional need for a
and power supply
by using a PC for
and data pro-
• Can instantaneously capture a 20 MHz wide
band of frequencies over the device’s entire
tuning range of 9.0 kHz- 6.0 GHz.
• Achieves gapless spectrum coverage
through the use of overlapping Fourier analysis.
• Offers features expected in a traditional
benchtop spectrum analyzer (i.e span/center
frequency, start/stop frequency, resolution
bandwidth, video bandwidth, configurable
traces, and markers).

LED Engin, Inc
Luxi Tune Tunable White Light Engine
The first intelligent, compact, single emitter
light engine delivers directional light with hal-ogen-style dimming, hugging the black body
curve from 3000K down to1800K. Luminous
flux is 1100 lumens, equivalent to a 60W halogen lamp.
• Luminous efficacy is 63
lumens per Watt hot and
including the secondary
optic, far higher than that
of rival products that utilize
multiple emitters and reflectors.
• Maintains a CRI average
of of 85 and R9 red content
of 70 as it dims.
• At full intensity, color rendering index (CRI)
• Comprised of a 12-die, compact single emitter with intelligent control circuit and complementary TIR optic.
