Flutter Wireless Open Source Hardware files
Flutter Wireless is an open source hardware platform designed by Taylor Alexander for the development of mesh networking protocols and connected devices. It is intended for use in robotics, hobbyist, commercial, or educational applications. For more information visit FlutterWireless.com. All files copyright Flutter Wireless, 2013-2015.
If you want to modify these files, you need a version of EagleCAD that can work with 4 layer files (the freeware version only supports 2 layers). They have a hobby license that is well-suited for this. If you only want to reproduce the boards as is, we have provided gerber files. Note that the files do not have a clean perimeter as they are intended to be arrayed on a panel. We will probably revert to a non panel-ready version at some point, as I don't believe our assembler needs them to be that way. Please file an issue if you cannot use them in their current format.
This is the initial release of the hardware design files.

These documents are provided for informational purposes only and neither Flutter Wireless nor its employees, contributors, or representatives may be held liable for any damages caused by the use of these files. By using these files, you agree to release from all liability and hold harmless Flutter Wireless, its employees, contributors, and representatives. We are not responsible for any errors or ommissions contained herin, and all devices derived from this work should be indepentently verified by an engineer or engineers skilled in the appropriate fields.
The devices described by these files are wireless devices classified as intentional radiators. The electromagnetic spectrum used by these devices is a publicly shared medium that is regulated by all governments worldwide. If you produce your own copies of these boards, you must comply with all local wireless regulations including but not limited to passing wireless certification tests. Flutter Wireless has performed wireless testing to permit us to distribute this hardware in various regions, but this certification is exclusive to Flutter Wireless and does not extend to third party manufacturers. It is your responsibility to know the laws and ensure that devices you produce follow them.
It should also be noted that open source radio products are a new phenomenon. So far the law permits them, but there is a risk that new legal restrictions could be passed that harm the open source community if users abuse this hardware by producing versions of this or other hardware that violate the law. Be respectful and responsible - don't make changes that you don't understand or that violate the law. None of this should be considered legal advice - just common sense.
