Latest Open-Source Hardware certifications at MAKE by Michael Weinberg

The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) runs a free program that allows creators to certify that their hardware complies with the community definition of open source hardware.  Whenever you see the certification logo, you know that the certified hardware meets this standard.

The certification site includes a full list of all of the certified open source hardware.  Here is all of the hardware that was certified in January, which comes from Australia, Ecuador, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United States. The hardware from Ecuador and Turkey are the first pieces of certified open source hardware from those countries.

Worth noting a trend… Feather format, AND/OR supporting CircuitPython continues to be popular in industry as well as open-source hardware communities.

PewPew M4 from Switzerland is a game console for teaching programming using CircuitPython.

The ATM90E26 Featherwing is an advanced energy monitor featherwing.

The UWB Feather incorporates the Decawave DWM1000 module and an ATSAMD21 ARM Corex M0 into the Adafruit feather form-factor.

Orange Crab is an FPGA development platform featuring a Lattice ECP5 FPGA, DDR3 memory in an Adafruit Feather Form Factor.

The 2020 Open Hardware Summit Badge is a wrist-watch form-factor badge for the 2020 Open Hardware Summit (March 13 in NYC). It has a Nordic nRF52840 microcontroller capable of running CircuitPython.
