Join the CHIPS Alliance and harness the tremendous amount of collaborative energy in open source hardware development.

The CHIPS Alliance is an organization which works collaboratively to develop high quality, open source hardware designs relevant to silicon devices and FPGAs.  By sharing openly resources and ideas, we hope to lower the cost of hardware development.

As a collection of open source projects, we welcome anyone who wishes to participate in the technical development process.  We are currently bootstrapping our Technical Steering Committee (TSC), but encourage developers from members and non-members alike to join our technical discussion mailing list.

The CHIPS Alliance also welcomes corporate members.  By participating as a corporate member, your organization provides vital funding for the infrastructure and activities that support our open and collaborative development process.
