Open-source computing hardware comprises computers and computer components with an open design. They are designed as open-source hardware using open-source principles.


Partially open-source hardware[edit]

Hardware that uses closed source components

Computers[edit]

Single-board computers[edit]

  • Tinkerforge RED Brick, executes user programs and controls other Bricks/Bricklets standalone
ARM[edit]
Motorola 68000 series[edit]
National Semiconductor NS320xx series[edit]
RISC-V[edit]

Routers[edit]

Notebook computers[edit]

Handhelds, palmtops, and smartphones[edit]

Fully open-source hardware[edit]

Hardware that has no closed source dependencies

Microcontrollers[edit]

  • Arduino — an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple I/O board and a development environment that implements the open source Processing / Wiring language. Also clones of this platform including Freeduino.
  • Tinkerforge — a platform comprising stackable microcontrollers for interfacing with sensors and other I/O devices.
