About prpl

Our Mission Statement:

The mission of the Foundation is to: (a) develop, support and promote an open-source, community-driven consortium with a focus on enabling the security and interoperability of embedded devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart society of the future; and (b) undertake other activities as appropriate to further the purposes and achieve the goals set forth above.

Historically, the prpl Foundation developed around the MIPS ecosystem; it now has evolved to be instruction set-neutral in its approach. The mission of the Foundation may only be amended by a unanimous vote of all of Platinum Directors

In addition, prpl strives to: 

  • Support, align and complement major community initiatives such as OpenWrt to complement OpenWrt and drive carrier grade features to the next level
  • Enable developers to draw on considerable resources to deliver applications and devices to both B2C and B2B markets that share open source innovations created by some of the best minds from member companies
  • Establish and grow a thriving technical community that contributes to the foundation, and generates added value and differentiation for member companies
