Power converters are THE link between the digital and the physical world. Give your Raspberry Pi a universal muscle to operate whatever you want.
We believe that "Software Defined Inverters" (SDIs) are the future of power converters. They achieve universality with a single, fixed piece of hardware where the overall functionality is defined via software (changes) only.
Your smartness and creativity combined with your technical background and resources: together we can make the future happen! Do you have what it takes? Join the TAPAS community challenge!
