LABDOS - semiconductor based ionising radiation spectrometer

Universal Scientific Technologies s.r.o. (UST)

LABDOS01 is an open-source spectrometer-dosimeter based on a silicon PIN diode and is intended for scientific research and experimental purposes. A USB-C port or JST-GH connector secures power and communication. The device can be used statically (located in a specific place e.g. laboratory or base) or in mobile applications (such as cars or UAVs). The spectrometer is housed in a 3D printed box, which brings essential mechanical resistance and allows future development of user enclosures and new integrations.

The aim of LABDOS01 is to make an open-source, accessible, high-quality, reliable, and straightforward measuring device - a radiation energy spectrometer for the scientific community.

Librem 5 Dev Kit

Purism

The Librem 5 Dev Kit is a smartphone developer kit that is used by software developers to create apps and other software for the final Librem 5 GNU/Linux smartphone. The baseboard design uses an i.MX 8M System-On-Module (SOM), a SIMCom SIM7100A/E baseband modem mPCIe module, and a RedPine RS9116 WiFi+BT M.2 module. It includes a 720x1440 capacitive touch LCD, a dual-role capable USB-C port, a Mini-HDMI port, an RJ45 ethernet port, a 3.5mm headset audio jack, a microSD slot, a 3FF micro-SIM card slot, a 2FF smartcard slot, a GSM/3G/LTE WWAN SMD antenna, a GNSS/GPS module and SMD antenna, two WLAN SMD antennas including one for diversity, a 5MP camera, an earpiece speaker, a microphone, a 9-axis IMU, an ambient light+proximity sensor, a haptic motor, a user-controllable indication LED, an 18650 li-ion battery holder for use with an on-board charge controller, and kill switches for WWAN, WiFi+BT, & camera+mic.

Librem 5 EXT CON Rigid-Flex Breakout Board

Purism

The EXT CON Rigid-Flex Breakout Board is a small board that connects to the FPC connector J10 on the Librem 5 while the rigid section mounts inside of the phone using the center M.2 cover-plate threaded insert. The breakout board provides UART, I2C, SPI, two GPIOs, 3.3V, and 1.8V; making it really useful for custom projects, as demonstrated in this blog post.
