This week multicore chipmaker Adapteva announced that it will use the SWARM runtime machine to run on its Epiphany multicore processor. SWARM (Swift Adaptive Runtime Machine) provides an intermediate layer programming environment that supports application development.

“The Epiphany microprocessor redefined the meaning of real-time computing and will allow for the introduction of advanced applications not even feasible on current quad-core devices – but none of these applications will be possible without an efficient and scalable programming environment. After designing the architecture, we had to find the software solution that would allow developers to fully utilize the power of the parallel environment to create more sophisticated applications. ETI’s SWARM technology provides the combined ease-of-programming and specialized many-core capacity necessary to deliver this development capability.”
