EOMA68 standard, a freely-accessible royalty-free, unencumbered hardware standard formulated and tested over the last five years around the ultra-simple philosophy of “just plug it in: it will work.”

  • Truly Free: Everything is freely licensed
  • Modular: Use the same Computer Card across many devices
  • Money-saving: Upgrade by replacing Computer Cards, not the whole device
  • Long-lived: Designed to be relevant and useful for at least a decade, if not longer
  • Ecologically Responsible: Keeps parts out of landfill by repurposing them

Some of you might recognise the form-factor of EOMA68 Computer Cards: it’s the legacy PCMCIA from the 1990s. The EOMA68 standard therefore re-uses legacy PCMCIA cases and housings, because that’s an environmentally responsible thing to do (and saves hugely on development costs).
