A new Parallella software defined radio platform

During the Parallella Technical Conference in Tokyo we announced a new Software Defined Radio platform, created by “friends of Parallella”. The platform is based on a popular Analog Devices RFIC called AD9361. The chip has some pretty impressive specifications: RF 2 × 2 transceiver with integrated 12-bit DACs and ADCs Band: 70 MHz to 6.0 GHz Supports […]

Andreas Olofsson interview on the AMP Hour

  If you haven’t heard of the Amp Hour, you are missing out. Chris and Dave have done over 200 Podcast, interviewing luminaries like Andrew “bunnie” Huang and Chuck Peddle. I had a blast talking to Chris and Dave this week and considering the other guests that have been on the show I am honored that they […]

Supercomputer.io: “It’s alive!”

During the Parallella Technical Conference on May 30th we ran the first official live test of supercomputer.io. The whole experiment has come together very quickly over the last few weeks and it’s amazing that we had close to 2,500 CPU cores up and running within one week of launch. The successful first run is a huge […]

Can lean innovation bring growth and profits back to semiconductors?

(ELECTROIQ): The semiconductor industry returned growth and reached record revenues in 2013, breaking $300 billion for the first time after the industry had contracted in 2011 and 2012 (FIGURE 1). However, even with that return to growth, underlying trends in the semiconductor industry are disturbing: The semiconductor cycle continues its gyrations, but overall growth is […]

Best crowdfunded project ever: Potato salad. Goal: $10. Pledged (so far): over $57,000!

(NETWORK WORLD): If you were going to go for crowdfunding what sort of project do you think you might put forward? Something techie, like Adapteva’s supercomputer on a chip (successfully funded with $898,921 pledged on a $750,000 goal)? Or maybe something in the bio world, such as a delightful project to explore the mushrooms of Madagascar […]

Adapteva Parallella Has Arrived

(MICROENGINES): After waiting almost a year, I finally have my pre-order Parallella 16 with GPIO and Zynq 7010. Taken its time, lets see if it is worth it. This board is a ARM A9 Dual 1Ghz, 1Gb RAM single board computer about the same size as the Raspberry Pi with Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, Micro […]

My Parallella is here

(kb8ojh.net): I was a backer of the AdaptevaParallella Kickstarter campaign way back in 2012. Parallella is a development board for Adapteva’s Epiphany processor line, which is a massively parallel (though initial silicon is limited to 16 or 64 cores, the design is intended to scale to 4096 cores) coprocessor with an impressive FLOPS/IOPS-to-the-watt figure. The […]
