Opencores' main objective is to design and publish core designs under a license for hardware modelled on the Lesser General Public License (LGPL) for software. They are committed to the ideal of freely available, freely usable and re-usable open source hardware.

They have set the following objectives as the means of reaching their main objective:

  •  Develop standards for open source cores and platforms
  •  Create tools and methods for development of open source cores and platforms
  •  Develop open source cores and platforms Provide documentation for these cores and platforms
  •  These tools and methods should allow teams to develop hardware in an open way.
