The Parallella Board
• 18-core credit card sized computer
• #1 in energy efficiency @ 5W
• 16-core Epiphany RISC SOC
• Zynq SOC (FPGA + ARM A9)
• Gigabit Ethernet
• Micro-SD storage
• Up to 48 GPIO pins
• HDMI, USB (optional)
• Open source design files
• Runs Linux


The Parallella computer is a high performance, credit card sized computer based on the Epiphany multi-core chips from Adapteva.  The Parallella can be used as a standalone computer, an embedded device or as a component in a scaled out parallel server cluster.

The Parallella includes a low power dual core ARM A9 processor and runs several of the popular Linux distributions, including Ubuntu.

The unique Epiphany co-processor chips consists of a scalable array of simple RISC processors programmable in bare metal C/C++ or in a parallel programming frameworks like OpenCL, MPI, and OpenMP. The mesh of independent cores are connected together with a fast on chip network within a distributed shared memory architecture.

The Parallella is an ideal candidate for anyone interested in the field of parallel computing.
