RS to distribute Adapteva's open-source computing platforms
05 October 2014
RS Components has entered an agreement with Adapteva to deliver one of the world’s most energy-efficient open-source computing platforms to customers globally.
RS Components has signed a distribution agreement with Adapteva, producer of the innovative Epiphany multicore coprocessor and developer of the popular Parallella-16 board.
The partnership will bring the Parallella board directly to customers in Europe and Asia, which comprise almost 50 percent of the Parallella community, and will enable quicker, easier access to this energy-efficient technology.
Parallella was introduced to the industry through a highly successful Kickstarter crowdsourcing campaign with the objective of democratising access to supercomputing. The open-source project now has thousands of users around the globe in one of the industry’s most active programming communities.
The open-source single board computer includes the Epiphany III 16 core co-processor on the board alongside the Xilinx Zynq Z7000 dual core ARM processor. The credit card sized device can be used as a development platform, embedded engine, teaching platform or research tool and is easily scalable by clustering boards to create a mini-supercomputer for advanced parallel computing applications.
The Parallella board is available in three models and can be purchased from RS for same-day despatch from the company’s global distribution centres.
