Little giants!!!

"To put that into perspective, the SoC is packed with a mind-blowing 192 cores..." Just 192 cores? Couldn't they pack any more?...LOL...just kidding. Could not believe that RS232 had still got a chance to exist on the Nvidia SBC. Interesting to see that Raspberry Pi has found its place in the super-computer as well!

Little giants indeed. We got the idea for this story when Nvidia briefed us on the $192/192-core Jetson TK1, which the company calls the world's first embedded supercomputer, because it uses Nvidia's Kepler core used in supercomputers.  Now I need to get them to give me a free sample of the kit so I can give it away to an engineer on EE Times.

Give one to the creaters of LTSPICE, GNUCAP, NGSPICE, and TINA respectively -- there is big pent-up demand for an in-expensive SPICE accellerator for the Free Versions of SPICE.

Thanks for the tip, MS243. (though at $192, they could probably afford to purchase one), it could be an interesting story. Send me any contact links/emails if you know of them. Thanks.

At only a buck a core, who wouldn't want one.  I may have to look into it since I always say I need a Cray.  Now so many choices.

Just use a GPU Board.

It's not an SBC but if i wanted to smash numbers a GPU board would be better, the nVidia Titan z has 5760 cores for 3000$, that's a little more than 50 cents a core, WIHTOUT all the hastle of dealing with a bunch of SBCs. Infact you can put 2 Titan Zs in a regular mid tower or even mini-atx on your desktop and DONE, almost 12,000 cores at your disposal for about 6K$, THAT would be home brew super computing, not a bunch of SBCs with a zillian ports you don't need and taking up valuable space, however it would look kool.

@silver5#!+

Amazing how stupid spamsters still try to sneak their malware garbage in under the transparent pretense of a legitimate comment.

MALWARE Alert! Do not view the 3 posts from silverprotect and melda1980.

The 2nd two posts triggered a malware detect by eetimes, and even though I did not go to any of the posted websites, my own Bit Defender has just reported an "infected file detected".

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
