A curated catalogue of Computer Engineering and Computer Architecture resources

The special charm of Computer Engineering is there's a relatively
good understanding of abstraction layers. - Jim Keller

Open Source Hardware

Community Organization

  • FOSSi Foundation - Free and Open Source Silicon (FOSSi) are components and systems that are inside silicon devices (‘chips’). It is our core belief that building blocks that form such digital devices can be made free and open

Industry Organization

  • OpenHW Group - Proven Processor IP

  • CHIPS Alliance - Common Hardware for Interfaces, Processors and Systems harnesses the energy of open source collaboration to accelerate hardware development.

  • RISC-V - RISC-V is a free and open ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration.

  • MultiCore Association - Define and promote open specifications to enable multicore product development.

  • Storage Networking Industry Association - A non-profit global organization dedicated to developing standards and education programs to advance storage and information technology.

  • OpenFabrics Alliance - The Alliance’s mission is to develop and promote software that enables maximum application efficiency by delivering wire-speed messaging, ultra-low latencies and maximum bandwidth directly to applications with minimal CPU overhead.

  • Open Compute Project - Focus on reimagining hardware, making it more efficient, flexible, and scalable.

  • Open Chiplet Initiative - zGlue Open Chiplet Initiative is a gallery of open designs, tools, and file formats that span the chiplet ecosystem from toolsets all the way to completed designs. The goal of the initiative is to lower the barrier for entry to create a collaborative environment for chiplet-based systems.

Digging Deeper

Computer Architecture is diverse and there's constant interplay between domains that are under it. Look under each of these to find specific information. (At the time of writing, these are the specific areas that I'm most interested in)
