Welcome to the CHIPS Alliance list - Some info and updates


Thank you for joining the CHIPS Alliance announce list.  I'm from the Linux Foundation and will be helping on the project.  There are a few things going on that I wanted to call your attention to.  

First, we're hosting the inaugural CHIPS Alliance workshop on June 19th.  The workshop will focus on open source hardware, software tools, RTL development and related topics. Presentations will be made by member companies and attendees will also have a forum to propose RTL design and development ideas. Workshop attendees will learn more about our organization and the RTL designs we will be developing. Attendees can network and meet with CHIPS Alliance members and the Board of Directors.  

If you've registered, we're looking forward to seeing you.  If you haven't registered yet, we still have some space:

Second, we're in the process of getting the project's collaborative infrastructure set up.  Per open source best practices, technical discussions will be held in the open.  We've established the initial technical discussion list, and it's open for everyone to join:

We are currently discussing how best to organize groups working on related technologies.  These mailing lists will be available on as these plans come together.

Finally, if you are interested in membership, we welcome a discussion with you.  Please reply to me directly, and I can arrange a call to discuss the details.

We're here to help.  If you have any questions about the CHIPS Alliance or the Linux Foundation in general, please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks, and welcome!
