MLAB brick system
The MLAB Project was created to develop an universal kit to support hobbyist and professionals in the construction of simple or more complicated devices and instruments (robots, automation systems, testing kits and so on). It is primary intended for engineers and scientist and it is still in development since 2003.
This wiki is only complement to primary MLAB website where are most pure technical documents publicated.
The principle of MLAB is based on decomposition of complex systems to smaller cells or bricks (in MLAB called modules) such as communication interfaces, operational amplifiers, CPU modules, programmers and much more. Over years of development, tenths of modules have been created - for simplicity they are orderd in list of modules.
When creating modules, the great emphasis is placed on the quality of construction. The results can therefore meet the standards of even the most demanding users from the community of researches, experimenters and innovaters
How to start
The page Guide for beginners has been created to help beginners.
Other guides can be found on page Guides.
There is a Mailing list and TODO list available for developers.
Due to its elegance and robustness, the MLAB is popular among still growing number of users.
Thanks to careful design, most of the modules are dimensionally and electrically compatible with many other products. The examples include Arduino platform, Merkur construction set, optical tables or DIN switchboard systems.

The possible applications are quite wide, see the list of Designs or list of Projects.
