Both professional and novice electronic enthusiasts and developers may be interested in a new modular electronics platform which is launched via Crowd Supply called Hexabitz. The Hexabitz Modular development boards equipped with a small MCU on the back side for connecting modules into a wired-mesh network and performing distributed control.”These “smart PCBs” provide huge gains in flexibility and reusability that outweigh the small increase in cost and power consumption.”
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Hexabitz-platform which is described as a “revolutionary modular prototyping platform designed for both bench-top and real-life applications. Inspired by nature, the architecture combines small electronic boards with specific geometric shapes and ratios to create larger flat and curved electronics.
In just a few minutes Hexabitz can be used to create a prototype board that functions in a similar way to a custom-made PCBA says creators, who have designed the platform for hobbyists and professional engineers. “Who likes mountains of wires and stacks of boards? Hexabitz mimics the natural form-factor of PCBAs; i.e., it is horizontally integrated utilizing a novel, edge-soldering technique for more rigid and reliable connections without the hassle or overhead of connectors. Hexabitz prototypes are ultra lightweight and at home inside or outside the lab. Boards can be disassembled and re-configured in just minutes.”
