Purism decided on Qualcomm Atheros chips, primarily since they use free and open source firmware, and have supported the community by writing free software drivers released under the ISC license.

Purism, strictly sticking to its philosophy would only include the ath9k supported chipsets, and will work with the ath10k developers to create a free software driver to replace the nonfree firmware blob within the ath10k driver.
