219 more Adafruit boards have been certified by OSHWA #OSHW #OSHWA #Adafruit @ohsummit
For the past six weeks, Adafruit has been working to certify many of their boards with the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). The application process for the roughly 390 boards that were submitted was finished two weeks ago. Of those 390 submitted, 298 of them have been approved so far. There are still about 90 pending certifications.
There are currently 751 projects certified by OSHWA, making certifications for Adafruit projects almost 40% of all projects OSHWA has certified.
There will be more certifications to come in the next few weeks. Keep an eye on the Adafruit blog for more updates.
Here’s a selection of the many boards that were certified in the last two weeks:
Adafruit’s founder, Limor Fried, was recently interviewed by OSHdata about the certifications. You can find that interview here.
