Git has become an essential tool in modern software development workflows, providing a robust and flexible foundation for version control and collaboration. But, it’s not limited to just code. It is also used for versioning and tracking changes in various types of files and projects, including hardware development.
As engineers ourselves, we built AllSpice to be a platform that helps engineers create incredible hardware products more efficiently. We love talking with our users, and we’re so happy you’re talking back to us 🙂. Here’s a recap of a live Q&A about hardware product development, collaboration, and documentation.
Our co-founder Kyle Dumont joined Chris Gammell in episode #505 of The Amp Hour Electronics Podcast to talk about revision control for hardware projects.
GitHub and Gitlab are becoming popular revision control tools, but did you know you can use them to render your circuit designs in the browser? This can be extremely helpful for quickly browsing through revisions or sharing your designs with people who might not have otherwise necessary software installed.
We sat down to talk to Macrofab Engineering Podcast hosts Parker Dillmann and Stephen Kraig. Macrofab is a PCB and Electronics Manufacturing platform.
Need to organize schematic, PCB and supporting files? Here are some ways to do so more easily by setting up your Altium project on Git.
One of our founders, Kyle, was working at a 3D printing company two years ago when he first noticed the lack of tools for hardware developers. He was building the electrical and software engineering teams. As the company grew bigger, he looked for tools to help manage the development process and allow his teams to collaborate.
Over the last 6 months, the global semiconductor shortage has been consistently making news for the wave of resulting disruption across the hardware world. From automotive to consumer electronics, virtually every hardware industry has had to scramble to find component replacements ranging from sophisticated ICs to simple microcontrollers.
Because software and hardware are so closely connected, they are starting to cross-pollinate across teams. Hardware engineers are cherry picking what can improve their current processes. Although these principles cannot be simply copied and pasted from SW to HW development, much can be borrowed and adapted. We broke down how to do so in 8 ways.
A simple miscommunication or lost update can cause a domino effect that spreads across huge portions of an organization and its stakeholders within multiple teams. Its impact can throw business goals off the rails; stalling new projects, delaying other customer orders, and frustrating employees. Alignment is far more than a buzzword – taking these steps to keep everyone on the same page is well worth the effort.
