Bit-tech Article: Linux Foundation Launches FOSSi-Focused CHIPS Alliance

By March 12, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

The Linux Foundation has thrown its weight behind the free and open source silicon (FOSSi) movement, launching an industry group dubbed the CHIPS Alliance to ‘host and curate high-quality open source code relevant to the design of silicon devices.’
The free and open source silicon (FOSSi) movement has been growing considerably in recent years: From Western Digital‘s plan to switch its storage processing products to RISC-V to Nvidia‘s interest in the platform, an increasing number of companies are investigating FOSSi as a real alternative to proprietary silicon in projects ranging from embedded to high-performance computing.
Now, the Linux Foundation is getting involved: Best known for its stewardship of the Linux kernel, the Linux Foundation also hosts a range of related free and open source software (FOSS) projects – and is now expanding into hardware with the launch of the CHIPS Alliance.
