  • ExpansionCards

    Reference designs and documentation to create Expansion Cards for the Framework Laptop

  • hardened_malloc

    Hardened allocator designed for modern systems. It has integration into Android's Bionic libc and can be used externally with musl and glibc as a dynamic library for use on other Linux-based platforms. It will gain more portability / integration over time.
