Mouser Electronics and Grant Imahara Explore Prototype Design with Arduino in Latest “Engineering Big Ideas” Series Video

10 OCTOBER 2019

Mouser Electronics Inc. and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara today released the second video in the Engineering Big Ideas series, part of Mouser’s award-winning Empowering Innovation Together™ program. Watch the latest video at https://mou.sr/EIT2019-2.

In the second video of the Engineering Big Ideas series, Mouser and Imahara take viewers along to Milan, Italy, for a visit to Arduino®, one of the world’s leading open-source hardware and software ecosystems. Imahara sits down with Arduino co-founder and CTO Massimo Banzi to examine the prototyping tools designers and developers use to understand and articulate the capabilities and limits of an idea. The pair also explores how the open source movement contributes to broadening access to innovation. The Engineering Big Ideas series is sponsored by Mouser’s valued suppliers Analog Devices, Intel®, Microchip Technology and Molex.

“We are excited about this second episode of Engineering Big Ideas. Prototype design is meant to create something completely new,” said Glenn Smith, President and CEO of Mouser Electronics. “Through open source hardware and software, companies like Arduino present significant opportunity to designers and developers by removing barriers and opening gates to innovation.”

“Open source is a perfect example of innovation through collaboration and shared access to knowledge,” added Imahara. “Rapid prototyping is a natural fit for this environment; ideas can come to life quickly and cost-effectively.” 

Global electronic component distributor Mouser Electronics is teaming up with engineer Grant Imahara for the fifth consecutive year to present the Engineering Big Ideas series, which explores the process of turning an idea into a product and examines the path to commercialization — from discovery to design and eventually development.

The Empowering Innovation Together program has been one of the most recognized and notable electronic component educational programs since 2015, highlighting a range of innovative developments from IoT and smart cities of the future to robotics technologies.
