There are many WiFi chips around us. The WiFi router, the smart light, the TV, the phone, etc., all have WiFi chips inside. Ever imagine replacing those chips with an open-source chip?
openwifi, announced in FOSDEM’20, is the 1st opensource WiFi chip design (802.11a/g/n, ax is coming) which includes Verilog source code for the chip and C source code for the Linux driver. We have paved solid steps towards an open-source WiFi chip. Now if you have FPGA dev boards (listed on our github), you can download our design onto it and start to use this FPGA based WiFi in the same way as other commercial WiFi chips! The FPGA board could become WiFi AP, WiFi client, ad-hoc node or sniffer, etc. Just like a Raspberry PI!

Besides the standard WiFi functionality, it also has some special features.
