Embedded product development platform

OpenLabTM is a unique concept developed in Etiq lab aiming to fill the gap between high end engineering theory knowledge and practical know - how among engineering students and fresh graduates. It is a sophisticated platform on which one can find all the necessary electronic control modules, circuit making devices and ports arranged on a base board in modular structure. One can use the OpenLabTM to learn, experiment, design and implement a vast range of circuits.

OpenLabTM is designed in such away that wiring up the circuit is considerably minimal. OpenLabTM has most of the important boards and circuits on-board and also has the option to connect other functional modules. It even supports Arduino shields which make it compatible with most of the available modules in the market. To use additional modules, you don't need to use wires. The design is optimized for adding the modules directly into the platform which makes the product development process even faster

Embedded experiments

OpenLabTM is a self-learning embedded application development platform on which students and techno enthusiasts can experiment circuits of their choice and there by acquire related skills and expertise. The best part is that one can experiment and design a vast range of circuits starting from basic circuits to highly complicate dones on this platform. For those high skilled professionals, OpenLabTM is best recommended for industrial prototype design of complex control systems.

Projects development to product prototyping

OpenLabTM is designed for doing complete projects from the concept to a working model. Various on-board modules and additional add-on functionalities make it easy to realise a functional product. For designing products, initial prototyping needs fast implementation. It can be done by with very little effort in OpenLab and complete the first prototype very fast.

Modular structure

OpenLabTM is modular structured which means, different functional units of OpenLab are arranged as separate modules. The developers of OpenLab were particular about the modular design because of the simplicity and easiness while learning and working on a modular platform. Apart from giving a neat appearance onboard, modularity enhances the effectiveness of learning process as a beginner who works with the system gets to know the exact circuit structure and the components involved in a particular Project.

OpenLabTM platform being the only one of its kind

Flexibility in port selection

Flexibility in port selection

Flexibility in the design aspect plays a crucial role in advanced electronic boards and systems. Consider a user is engaged in a project which requires more number of ports a part from the default port placed adjacent to each board. OpenLab is enriched with a number of free ports as the whole design of the system has been done perceiving the user/learner as the main beneficiary. Flexibility in the case of OpenLab mainly speaks about these on-board connections. There are no permanent connections or ports between the controller and various boards. A user can even by pass the default port and can make use of other ports.

Enhanced learning

Enhanced learning

OpenLabTM is implemented using through-hole components for better learning experiences. All the components are placed in accordance with their functionality, and circuits are arranged as section-wise. All the boards are arranged as different modules for promoting hardware learning.

Replaceability of perpheral boards

Replaceability of perpheral boards

Apart from the default peripheral boards which are available with OpenLabTM, the user can purchase other boards pin compatible with OpenLabTM from our cart with advanced functionalities. These boards may be similar in size to the default peripheral boards which are supposed to be replaced. This sort of customisability is yet another important feature of OpenLabTM which makes convenient to learn & build even more.

Unlimited resources to support self learning

Unlimited resources to support self learning

Apart from the user manuals and other leaf lets and palmlets, Etiq Technologies has a well-prepared website for learner's help.There is a dedicated section named LIY(Learn it yourself) where all the necessary tutorials on OpenLab are available with detail description and graphics. Besides, there are pages and sections on the website dealing with various other information regarding OpenLab and embedded system in general. For enhancing the effectiveness of learning, tutorials are embedded with enough umber of examples in each case.
