Foundation Projects

In the following you can find a list of our projects that we run or we are involved in.

LibreCores is a community hub for FOSSi. Centered around the theme of "sharing," LibreCores features documentation, ways for the communicate to interact, and most importantly, a project repository with free and open source digital hardware ("IP cores") and associated projects.
ORConf is the open source digital design conference. FOSSi Foundation organizes this conference yearly in varying places. It originally started as an OpenRISC user meeting in Stockholm in 2012 it has grown since considerably not only in attendance, but also in scope. Today, talks cover everything from RISC-V based CPU designs, to EDA tools, verification and testing, and other cool project our community comes up with.
Finding a suitable license for contributions in the open source world can sometimes be tricky. The FOSSi Foundation is actively involved in helping users choose licenses which suit their needs. We realize, that for some scenarios existing licenses are not sufficient. We are working with lawyers to extend existing licenses, or to create new one as necessary.

Join our efforts!

FOSSi Foundation is community-driven, we encourage all interested parties to join our efforts, or to suggests new areas where work is needed. Do not hesitate to contact us, you can find contact information at the organization and commitees page.
