Leveraging the power of Open Source Hardware & Software, the products found at Switchmode Design offer multiple options allowing users to decide how involved they want to be in the assembly of the product. From blank printed circuit boards to fully assembled and tested products, the power of choice differentiates Switchmode Design from its competitors.
If you don't own a soldering iron, you can rest assured by purchasing a fully assembled and tested product ready for you to plug and play. If you are a veteran with a soldering iron, you can purchase a kit with all of the parts included allowing you to save money by assembling the product yourself. For the hardcore hackers, we even offer the blank circuit boards on all of our kits -- meaning you can purchase all of the parts yourself for ultimate control in customization.
