Open Source Hardware Certifications for September 2019

The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) runs a free program that allows creators to certify that their hardware complies with the community definition of open source hardware.  Whenever you see the certification logo, you know that the certified hardware meets this standard.

The certification site includes a full list of all of the certified open source hardware.  Here is all of the hardware that was certified in September, which comes from Croatia, France, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Spain, and the United States:
