Support Chips4Makers!

Thanks for supporting to get the open silicon movement started. You will be remembered until eternity!


Retro-uC Chip

The Retro-uC chip in a QFP package.



The Retro-uC on a board with Arduino Mega footprint and compatible I/O. USB is used to power the board and for programming it.


Retro-uC Breadboard

A Retro-uC mounted on a PCB that is breadboardable. The board is delivered with headers that make the board compatible with classic DIL chips. The headers are not mounted yet and need to be soldered manually.


Retro-uC ProtoPlus

The Retro-uC mounted on a Perf2+ style prototype board.


Retro-uC Fired Up Pack

A pack for the Retro-uC and open silicon believer to show their support. The pack contains the Retro-uC chip and one of each Retro-uC board. It will also give early access to the Chips4Makers developer board that will be set up after the Retro-uC chip has been taped out.


Retro-uC Chip Developer Pack

The Fired Up Pack with an additional Digilent FPGA board pre-loaded with Retro-uC source code and delivered early so you can start developing your own IC. The FPGA will be shipped the same time when the development hub will be opened, the Retro-uC Fired Up Pack will be shipped later.


Retro-uC Chip 5 Pack

5 Retro-uC chips.



Chips want to be free.
