Parallella Meta Module

Postby polas » Sun Sep 24, 2017 7:28 pm

Hi,

I noticed a link from a recent blog post to this https://github.com/parallella/parallell ... aster/meta - which looks very interesting and would afford 256 Epiphany III cores in a plug-able module. Has anyone had a go at building this at all? I guess it would be fairly cheap (comparatively to the mask for an Epiphany V that was discussed in another post) to send away to get a board or two based on this design and then to buy 16 Epiphany IIIs & other components to solder onto it? I guess the elink software would need to be extended to be aware of the board & these extra Epiphanies too? What other blockers/challenges would there be?

Cheers,
Nick

P.s. On http://www.adapteva.com/andreas-blog/adapteva-status/ it says that this has been manufactured, but I guess only as a small run prototype?

could you wire up the gpio of a raspberry pi to one of these, or would it not be a fast enough interface to do anything useful .. or could it be driven by a regular fpga (as opposed to a parallela)

The referenced repository location was recently updated to break out the meta module (https://github.com/parallella/parallell ... eta_module) and meta carrier (https://github.com/parallella/parallell ... ta_carrier).

You probably won't hear any updates until there is something to say. If/when successful, this community will be of the first to know.
