The Best Digital Technology Comes In Small Packages

(Electronic Design): Adapteva’s 65-nm E16G301 Anemone Epiphany has 16 nodes that are only 0.5 mm2 (Fig. 2). This means the multicore chip fits into the same space as a single Arm Cortex core. The nodes are connected in a rectangular matrix that provides communication between nodes. The chip only uses 2 W and comes in a 15- by 15-mm, 324-ball ball-grid array (BGA) package. Full Article
