• Open Source Hardware Logo

    You can download the new proposed Open Source Hardware Logo with release symbols here.
    800 pixels transparent PNG.
    Release symbol font is Arial Bold
    This is similar concept to how the Creative Commons adds options to their license. It would be nice to have a similar autogenerated logo based on the option people wanted to open.
    A text only version is also possible just like Creative Commons, e.g. OSHW-S-P-F-M-D-B-C

    Based upon the original logo by Macklin Chaffee

    LINK: Open Source Hardware Association Note that they have not commented on this logo usage with release symbols, just linked to them for reference.

    The history behind this Release Symbol based OSHW Logo:

    S = Schematic
    P = PCB
    F = Firmware and/or software
    M = Mechanical CAD files
    D = Design Documentation
    B = Bill Of Materials
    C = License used allows for commercial use

    Suggested use for non-original tool source files (e.g. PDF) Symbols are displayed in RED font.


    This is the original version with the letters in the gear teeth. But the letters could be underneath as well which might make it clearer, especially on PCB silkscreens.
