Our Mission

Philosophical Goal:

Promote the development of Free Hardware Design and Free Software. For a more detailed explanation including definitions of Free Hardware and Free Software, see the “About FreeIO” page.

Practical Goals:

  • Aggregate and distribute news about free hardware projects
  • Develop new free hardware projects
  • Provide access to existing free hardware projects by hosting them
  • Provide a means for free hardware and software developers to cooperate in the development of Free Hardware Designs and their associated Free Software.

When Marty passed away, our hardware development projects went into hiatus for a while but we are slowly gathering new hardware developers to start things up again. In the meantime, the website will be used to promote interest in free and open hardware designs by the continued posting of news articles on the subject.
