TinyCircuits is an Open Source Hardware company specializing in designing and manufacturing very small (Tiny) electronics. Based out of Akron, OH, TinyCircuits was originally started in 2011 by Ken Burns as AkroSense, with the intent to develop cheap, smart (very easy to use) and tiny sensors. During development of the initial sensor prototypes, we realized the need for a host processor platform to use – and the Arduino was the perfect fit. After showing off the prototypes to our friends, we began to shift our focus to building out the TinyDuino platform first, offering a core set of building blocks for makers to use to build cool stuff.
All of our products are built in Ohio, and we hope to grow the company and help to add good quality jobs to our local community here in Akron.
As an open-source hardware company, we fully embrace the community and welcome your input on what we are doing, how we are doing it, and how we can help make the community better. Our initial set of products are built upon the hard work of the Arduino team, we look to enhance this and branch it out into new areas. And we fully expect (and encourage) others to build upon our work as well.
