PEPPER: Portable Electronic Parallel Processing Educational Resource

PEPPER - A LittleFe HPC machine

The Portable Electronic Parallel Processing Educational Resource (PEPPER), built by mathematics faculty Ed Donley and John Chrispell, is a six-node LittleFe mini supercomputer designed to bring parallel and distributed computing into the classroom.

PEPPER allows for key computational concepts such as speedup, efficiency, and load balancing to be done on a parallel computer in a classroom setting. It supports shared memory, distributed memory, and GPGPU parallelism that students using high performance computing clusters will encounter.

Any interested faculty members and students can use PEPPER for class projects and research.
