Can you put one in git? Obviously mark it in progress, not final etc.

I for one would really enjoy much earlier access to everything related to Koruza.

I'm in a somewhat unique position of being a businessman with access to my own private full service fabrication facility and staff. 3d printers, circuit board printers etc. Not to mention extensive networking talent. Also I have very cheap sfp etc access.

( I also have extensive technical credentials, currently studying for ccie) so don't shoot me because I'm a suit :-)

the BOM is not yet finalized, will be published as soon as possible.

I will also make sets of parts available as a kit, to get everyone
started as easily as possible and probably cheaper then if you ordered
parts individually, also quality controlled to avoid some problems.

Kind regards,

the parts ( especially if they have lead time).

Congratulations! I look forward to following development on GitHub.

I am happy to update you all on KORUZA progress. The calibration
tool is
progressing well so construction and calibration process can soon be
documented and made reliable, moving from "black magic" to
following a
few simple steps. Nearing the open-source release, licensing
has been sorted out and your comments are welcome.

NIR pixels is a tool developed for observing NIR (SWIR) IR
optical beams
1100nm to 16500nm in which range KORUZA used wavelengths fall.
Due to
the lower photon energy, this light can not be well detected by
silicon based detectors and so far no affordable methods were

Head over to for more
information in
the readme. Would anyone be willing to actively step in and with
my help
design a complete KORUZA calibration tool. This requires some MCU
firmware development, circuit design (I can do it) and user
construction. The calibration device must be a standalone unit
that you
place on a camera stand. It will have a few LED on board, extended
information should be available via WiFI preferrably using ESP8266
module we can put there along with a battery.

KORUZA licensing has been discussed and I have chosen CERN OHL
for hardware and GPL v3 for firmware/software. Repository is
with this information, comments welcome:

Timeline wise, it is all best effort making the system properly
open-source as soon as time possibly allows. I will keep this
list posted with the updates and let you know when it is the
right time
to start building units.

Kind regards,
