The Parallella platform is an open source, energy efficient, high performance, credit-card sized multicore computer developed by Adapteva. The Parallella includes a dual-core ARM A9 CPU, a field programmable gate array (FPGA), and Adapteva's unique 16/64-core Epiphany coprocessor. The board offers USB, Ethernet, and HDMI connectivity, making it a great standalone computer.
The Parallella can be used to build massively parallel computer clusters with minimal power consumption. This affordable platform is designed for developing and implementing high performance, parallel processing applications developed to take advantage of the on-board Epiphany chip.
The Epiphany 16 or 64 core chips consists of a scalable array of simple RISC processors programmable in C/C++ connected together with a fast on chip network within a single shared memory architecture.
