Timothy Miller with the intention of developing a completely open
graphics card that 'just works' on free and open source operating
systems. Since that time, the project has continued to work toward
their goal, most recently completing the schematics for their OGD1
board. The OGD1 is an FPGA-based project board with memory and
video hardware on it. The board will be utilized by the Open
Graphics project to develop their graphics card, however it is also
being made available commercially as a generic FPGA-based
prototyping board to raise funds for the project. Timothy explains,
'the OGD1 was going to be built anyway as a step towards OGC [the
Open Graphics Card]. We were going to build 10 and use them
