ORConf is an open source digital design and embedded systems conference, covering areas of electronics from the transistor level up to Linux user space and beyond. Expect presentations and discussion on free and open source IP projects, implementations on FPGA and in silicon, verification, EDA tools, licensing and embedded software, to name a few.

Begun as the annual OpenRISC developers and users conference, it has become a broad open source digital design-oriented event and is supported by the Free and Open Source Silicon Foundation.

The conference is free to attend, and we invite anyone with an interest in the field to participate by presenting or just joining us for the event.

Sign up to the orconf-announce mailing list for further details as they're announced.
