Adapteva Kickstarter effort creates developer community

SAN JOSE, Calif.–It came right down to the wire, but in the end Adapteva’s effort to raise $750,000 on Kickstarter to fund a new mask set for its Epiphany processor was a rousing success. Not only did the startup snag nearly $900,000 after some last–minute pledges, it also seeded a developer community of nearly 5,000 potential customers.

Seven people pledged $10,000 to get early access in December to Adapteva’s $99 reference board. It includes a 16-core Epiphany and a Xilinx Zinq FPGA with an embedded dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor.
