It was dark, so most of my shots were blurry, but this gives a sense of the excitement as David opened his suitcase of schwag!
The software/hardware duality of XMOS platform means this single generic chip can process mouse, keyboard, USB, Network as well as driving a display all from a single chip. Amazing!
The XK-XMP-64 is a prototype multi-processor board that demonstrates the scalability of the XS1 architecture. Based on the same board format as the XDK, the XMP-64 connects together 64 XCore processors in 16 XS1-G4 devices on a single PCB, delivering 25 GIPS:
David's talk was deep and technical and as a result engrossing. I especially enjoyed the XC examples which blur the distinction between software and hardware.
After his talk a group quickly formed around David, keen to ask questions. Many lucky folks also came away with XCore architecture and XC books and development kits also.
16 x XS1-G4 four-core devices connected as a hypercube, some serious power there!

16 x quad core XMOS devices connected in a 4-D hypercube - the extremely cool XMP-64 development kit.
A prototype dual core XMOS device. Over one thousand MIPS and smaller than a stamp.
