Board Design Files for Minnowboard Turbot available

John Hawley of Intel announced on the Minnowboard mailing list the availability of board design files for the ADI MinnowBoard Turbot, released by Mentor Graphics.

3D STEP files now available – Courtesy of Mentor Graphics. Just wanted to let everyone know that Mentor Graphics has just released accurate STEP files for ADI MinnowBoard Turbot. I know there’s been folks interested in getting these for a variety of reasons, and while I’ve attempted to respond to the folks who have pinged me directly, I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware that those are now available. If you’ve got any problems with them, let me know, and serious thanks go out to Mentor Graphics for doing this!

Two quotes from the Minnowboard wiki:

“The design files are released under Creative Commons CC-BY-SA.”

“The MinnowBoard Turbot is intended to comply with all requirements and guidelines set forth by the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA).”

The word “intended” is probably significant; regardless I’m happy to see Minnowboard intending to be OSH. I hope they fulfill this intended goal! 🙂
