Sebastian Tolstoy, VP Business Development, Ericsson

“The potential for major returns in energy efficiency and performance gained from parallel processing are clear, and in fact critical, to support rapid growth in the telecoms industry. This makes innovations such as Adapteva’s very exciting for Ericsson and for the customers we work with,” said Sebastian Tolstoy, Ericsson VP Business Development, PA Radio, BNET. […]

“Andreas and his team have managed a rather fantastic feat: to develop a genuinely useful microprocessor with many task-parallel cores, operating within the power-budget of smart-phones and embedded devices. Accomplishing all this with a team of only a few full-time employees may seem unbelievable, but I’ve seen how he operates his company and the magic […]

“Massive parallelism is the only way to meet both the computing performance demands and the power limitations in future, advanced embedded signal processing applications. Processor architectures need to be built on simple, scalable principles. Powerful processors and straightforward means for moving data around is a key to high throughput in streaming applications. To my understanding, […]

John Barr, Industry Analyst

“The future of HPC (and probably all computing) is both many core and heterogeneous. Trying to get there by adapting today’s commodity processors and GPUs has the benefit of better support for legacy applications, but at some stage this approach will break down. Adapteva’s MIMD architecture should scale better for programs with irregular data structures […]

David Richie, CEO, Brown Deer Technology

“Adapteva has delivered an architecture that supports massive on-chip parallelism with impressive power efficiency.  OpenCL provides the perfect foundation for such a processor. We leveraged this API in an SDK that provides programmers with a clear path for code development.  Programmers will find their parallel algorithms mapping naturally to the Epiphany architecture.  The chip is […]

Jeremy Bennett, CEO, Embecosm

“Adapteva’s Epiphany processor demonstrates how a small number of well designed instructions can work efficiently with GCC, making it the next generation of RISC architecture. The Epiphany architecture clearly shows that it’s possible to get outstanding compiler performance without a complex instruction set.”

Mikael Taveniku, CEO Xcube

“High performance embedded computing is naturally split into high throughput front end processing tasks and high complexity back end processing tasks.  FPGAs are great at front end bit shuffling type operations but have proven challenging to use for high complexity algorithms, some requiring floating point scaling.  Microprocessors are great for the highly complex processing with […]
