Open Source Hardware (OSHW) designs are made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make or sell designs or hardware based on that design. This talk will explore the shared values with Open Source software and the specifics of publishing a hardware project under an Open Source license. It will include examples of Linux running on OSHW with projects like BeagleBone, CHIP, MinnowBoard and more. The role of the Open Source Hardware Association and annual Open Hardware Summit will also be discussed, along with important OSHW projects for scientific researchers. There are exciting new developments within the last year for OSHW at the chip level. Projects like lowRISC, J-Core, OnChip and SiFive are working to produce true Open Source silicon processors. The FOSSi Foundation and LibreCores are helping to organize and promote this exciting new ecosystem.
