Curator Notes

The single-board Adapteva Parallella is a high performance computer designed for massively parallel systems. In this sense, it is a “Raspberry Pi for supercomputing.” CHM’s Parallella is the first version of the computer, which is outfitted with a 16-core, Adapteva-developed Epiphany microprocessor. The project was launched with a Kickstarter campaign that ultimately netted close to $900,000. A pledge of $99 or more was needed to receive one of the boards, which came loaded with the software necessary for owners to design their own projects. The Parallella computing platform is open-source and all technical documentation was published on the Web when the project was funded. The donor of this artifact is the founder of Adapteva, Inc.
