Sunday Seminar - Turning Ideas into Products: TAPR Project Development
This year's Sunday Morning Seminar will focus on the practicalities of
turning your back-of-the-napkin design for either hardware or software into
a product that other hams can use.  It will address the mechanics of
converting a hardware design into a kit or finished product, such as
selecting parts, using CAD tools, selecting a PC board house, preparing
documentation, and preparing for support.  It will also address intellectual
property issues, and in particular explain how you can use Open Source
licenses in your software project.  Although the Seminar will focus on the
TAPR design philosophy and process, it will be valuable for anyone
contemplating a ham radio product or kit, or just wanting to learn how
today's tools make it easy to create printed circuit boards.
