About

The Week of Open Source Hardware (WOSH) will take place in Zurich, Switzerland, from June 11 to June 14, 2019. During the first two days the RISC-V workshop takes places and focuses on the free and open RISC-V instruction set architecture. The FOSSi Foundation and the Pulp team, with the support of H2020 projects Eurolab4HPC and OPRECOMP are organizing a FREE complementary program that covers topics around free and open source silicon, its licensing and open source EDA tools. While those events are organizationally decoupled from the RISC-V workshop, it gives free and open source silicon enthusiasts the chance to gather and discuss throughout an entire week.

Tuesday, June 11 all-day RISC-V workshop
Wednesday, June 12 all-day RISC-V workshop
Thursday, June 13 all-day RISC-V membership meetings

Registration

The FOSSi events are free to attend! Anyhow, you must register, so that we can plan better. We expect all participants of FOSSi events to follow the FOSSi Foundation code of conduct.

Important: The RISC-V workshop is not free of charge and you must buy tickets from the website!

Open Source Licensing

The licensing of free and open source silicon IP has been a major discussion throughout the past 20 years. While the basic principles of free and open source software licenses are transferrable to silicon, there are also many differences. The proprietary nature of the design process and commercial IP in this field is a burden that we want to discuss in this session.

The detailed program will be announced soon! Speakers include:

  • Andrew Katz, Moorcrofts LLP
  • Anton Klotz, Cadence Design Systems
  • Luis Felipe Murillo and Pietari Kauttu, CERN
  • Tim Edwards, Open Circuit Design
  • ... and more

Challenges and opportunities for using Open Source Hardware in the academia and in the industry

In this workshop organized by Eurolab4HPC we plan to discuss technical and business opportunities and how to ease the technology transfer from research to product with input from both industry and academia.

The detailed program will be announced soon! Speakers include:

  • Per Stenstrom, Chalmers
  • Anupam Chattopadhyay, NTU
  • Adrian Cristal, BSC
  • ... and more

The path towards high quality FOSSi IP

Free and Open Source Silicon IP has been developed and deployed for over two decades now. But yet, it can be observed that there are still only a realtively small number of projects that attract permanent attention and are able to sustainably deliver high-quality IP. In this session we want to discuss what factors are the most important to foster and grow the community. This covers technical and organizational topics, such as continuous integration, documentation, community building and growth, and marketing.

The detailed program will be announced soon! Speakers include:

  • Fabian Schuiki, ETH Z├╝rich
  • ... and more

Open Source EDA Tools

Design tools are important for the development and implementation of free and open source silicon. Over the last years a boom of open source EDA tools has been an important factor in the adoption and growth of the community. In this session you will learn about the latest developments and participate in the discussion about future directions of this important field.

The detailed program will be announced soon! Speakers include:

  • Heinz Riener, EPFL
  • ... and more
