SparkFun and Open Source

From the beginning, open hardware has been a pillar of SparkFun. Our products and resources carry no patents, so anyone can use, modify and even sell them. Being open source encourages people to share and learn from each other. It also forces us to focus on what we do best and constantly innovate. In short, it makes us better, for you and for the world. Watch our founder, Nathan Seidle, speak on open source hardware.
