Tinkerforge is the affordable system of building blocks that will drastically simplify the implementation of your project. The modules are pluggable and they have an intuative API that is available for many programming languages. Through the high degree of abstraction the actual purpose of the project comes into focus while the technical implementation becomes a side issue. Tinkerforge is open source and Made in Germany.
The Tinkerforge GmbH was founded by us in 2011 to simplify the handling of embedded systems. Our goal is to make sure that a user of our system does not have to do any unnecessary tasks. It should be possible to work on the main task without beeing occupied by secondary tasks. To achieve this we want to offer one easy-to-use module per application. We started in 2011 with only a few modules.
Through continuous development we were able to increase to amount of available modules to more than 70 and many more are planned. Our team consists of seven employees that are dedicated to the open source philosophy. We use open source tools and open our source codes, circuit diagrams and layouts. We believe that customers should be able to understand and change products they bought.
