|| Marketplace for 'Open Hardware': Lectronz|
Lectronz is a new marketplace for electronics enthusiasts with a focus on the open hardware and DIY (do it yourself) electronics community. As Alain, one of the operators, tells us, the store was launched in early January with a focus on sellers in the EU. One of the reasons for launching Lectronz, he says, was to "to offer tools that address the needs of EU-based makers and small businesses, notably when comes to calculating VAT/taxes. In March we opened to sellers globally and we provided tools that help non-EU sellers import their products, again taking into account new VAT rules that were introduced in the EU in 2021." The software for the platform was written in-house to have full control over the function and also the possibility of future expansion.
A first Amiga item can already be found in the store: the Open Amiga Sampler. The simple mono 8-bit sound sampler for the Amiga is connected via the parallel port. It is based on the design of "echolevel", whose documentation is available on GitHub.
Currently the product is sold out, but as the vendor tells us when asked, he is in the process of building more samplers that should be available by the weekend. He has changed the placement of the electrolytic capacitors on the original design, and another revision to allow for a simpler construction is in the works if interest in his sampler continues. (dr)
