How would one make open source hardware if you cannot even compile it to see if it really is what they say it is? The best a company can do is make it well documented and even then, since you cannot compile and test yourself, there is no way to tell if that is everything they are including.
What the fuck are you talking about faggot?
It's impossible to verify modern hardware, you can't just bust out a microscope and audit transistor placement, it's infeasible. so even if you could get a fab house to give you full schematics you could never verify it, save for like 1 in a 1000 chips made, if even that.
Just gotta trust em
If OP wasn't retarded, he would of said hardware without adequate documentation which does not really matter, manufacturers can bullshit all they want with documentation but can't with source code.
