Andreas Olofsson founded Adapteva in 2008 with a mission to create a new class of low power parallel processors. In five years Adapteva has created four generations of multicore chips, the latest one being a 64-core microprocessor implemented in 28nm that consumes less than 2 Watts. In the fall of 2012, Adapteva launched the Parallella parallel computing project with the goal of producing a $99 credit card sized "supercomputer" that consumes less than 5 watts. Prior to starting Adapteva, Andreas worked at Analog Devices for 10 years developing energy efficiency DSPs and mixed signal SOCs. Andreas holds a BS degree in Physics and BS/MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.
