Linux Foundation projects and communities, including the OPI Project, will be out in full force at the Open Compute Project’s OCP Global Summit, October 17-19, in San Jose, CA! As a fellow open source community working towards common goals of working together to accelerate technological transformation, we work closely with OCP in various capacities across both organizations. Read below for an overview of our onsite presence at the event, and we hope to see you there!

CHIPS Alliance

Come learn about open source hardware collaboration and the exciting ecosystem that CHIPS Alliance is fostering as part of the Linux Foundation.  We offer open source hardware IP all the way from chip technology process design kits, electronic design automation, cell libraries, and higher level IP such as the root of trust Caliptra macro that is being showcased here as part of the OCP global summit. Be sure to catch one of the exciting technical talks on Caliptra at OCP.


Join DENT on October 18 for an inspiring morning filled with insights and innovation as we dive into the future of networking at the DENT Mini-Summit.

LF Edge

Edge-Native AI Hackathon : LF Edge  teamed up with ETSI and OCP to engage our collective communities and combine our efforts to see how we could influence Edge with Native AI. Each team was asked to address these 3 challenges:

  1.  How best to utilize edge-native and AI into data analytics and automation?
  2. How is edge-native and AI useful to enhance sustainability in applications, services and networks?
  3. How to deploy and utilize AI in 5G edge infrastructure to enable edge-native distributed applications?

The three finalist teams (Green Cyclops, Sheikah Tower / The AI Tower, PaLC.)  will present demonstrations/presentations of their hard fought solutions on the expo hall floor. October 18 at 3PM on the Main Expo Hall Stage, there will be a pitch off and winners will be selected and announced.

LF Edge community members will be present on site to chat about the projects in booth C37.
