Can I include the firmware in my kit?

by jeonlab on Thu Nov 10, 2011 10:56 pm

Hi.

Recently, I made a USB chargeable flashlight and simple circuit tester and thought if I use only one IR LED and use SOIC package of Attiny85, I could integrate a little bit modified (simplified and less powerful) TV-B-Gone inside the flashlight I made. I also thought I could sell a kit of those. In order to do that, I will need to load the firmware (the one in the TV-B-Gone Make page, v1.2) in the Attiny85 for the kit. My question is whether you allow me to do that or I should pay for it. I'd want to send an email, but couldn't find email address.

I'll look forward to your answer.

Thank you.

hiya!

it's open source software and hardware so you'll need to provide your files and hardware under the same license and you'll need to provide attribution (credit) to the makers. feel free to post here or email support@adafruit.com if you have any questions!

thanks!

Have a good weekend.

P.S. I couldn't make my blog as a link in my signature. How can I turn [url] ON in the signature? I did it before with my previous ID but for some reason I created this new ID and forgot how I did it.

no problem.

re: signatures - we're currently looking at enabling the signatures again - but we're working on some tools to make sure the links are not spam.

thanks,
