This is a first stab at a gap analysis for a set of popular open-source hardware companies and projects to determine the degree of [OSHW Definition] compliance and where room for improvement may lie.


  • Base-line compliance with the definition's minimum set of requirements
  • References to online material supporting Pass/Fail of base-line compliance
  • Main page table lists only cumulative Passes across all products under a given company or project portfolio, normalized by the total number.
  • Break-out per-company product gap analysis on individual pages
  • Bring attention to degrees of 'openness', e.g. in the use of OSI EDA/CAD tools, open cores, etc.
