OpenSupport Objectives (OpenTech Partner Program)

OpenSupport Program is a partnering program between OpenTech project and open source EDA tools & open source Hardware designs developers to provide the support for the users of these designs and tools and OpenTech customers.

We hope from through this program to increase the support level of Open source tools and designs and encourage designers to use them instead of the traditional ones.

How it works

OpenSupport Partners offer one or two of the following support levels:

- Basic support, which is free of charge provided by email, mailing list or online forum but the reply is not guaranteed and depends on the question or the request.

- Advanced support, fees will be charged to provide a guaranteed reply by email or phone, the fees are based on the question.

To request the basic support check the contact information specified for each project in this page and for the advanced support send your request to with the OpenSupport member name (project name) and your question.
The request will be evaluated and forwarded to the OpenSupport member.
Fees will be decided by the OpenSupport member answering the request.

Joining OpenSupport

To join the OpenSupport program send email to the OpenTech maintainer to arrange how to add your open source design/tool to OpenTech and to provide information on how will you support your design/tool.
