Adapteva/ Parallela Chip [closed]

Does anyone know if this chip is 32-bit or 64-bit? I would like to know before I decide to purchase one of these boards for development.

Best Answer

According to the Microprocessor Report on Adapteva (PDF):

The design also eschews memory management of any kind, implementing a flat 32-bit memory space without any protection

and also

The instruction set supports load and store double instructions that access two consecutive 32-bit registers, taking advantage of the 64-bit path from the SRAM to the register file.

So it sounds like a 32-bit computer than can do some 64-bit operations.
