An interesting new project called Parallella created by Adapteva has landed on Kickstarter which hopes to make parallel computing platforms accessible to everyone.
The key to the new Parallella project are Open Access, Open Source and Affordability say its creators, watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Parallella project and see its creators talk you through their idea.
“Open Access: Absolutely no NDAs or special access needed! All architecture and SDK documents will be published on the web as soon as the kickstarter project is funded.
Open Source: The Parallella platform will be based on free open source development tools and libraries. All board design files will be provided as open source once the Parallella boards are released.
Affordability: Hardware costs and SDK costs have always been a huge barrier to entry for developers looking to develop high performance applications. Our goal is to bring the Parallella high performance computer cost below $100, making it an affordable platform for all.”
The Parallella project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Parallella is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Parallella become a reality.
