Looks like it uses ARM. Although there are a couple of ongoing efforts, I haven't yet heard of a successful ARM port.

'Making parallel computing easy to use has been described as "a problem as hard

to make sure that every programmer has access to cheap and open parallel hardware
and development tools. Inspired by great hardware communities like Raspberry Pi and
Arduino, we see a critical need for a truly open, high-performance computing platform
that will close the knowledge gap in parallel programing. The goal of the Parallella
project is to democratize access to parallel computing.'
Parallella may well be "a great use case for Julia?" and while there are no "specific
plans in the works for Julia on Parallella ... given Parallella boards ship with Ubuntu ...
and given ... Julia runs great on Ubuntu, in theory it should work right out of the box?"

Also, I think that the real interest would be to be able to use Julia to program and interact with the Epiphany multicore accelerator, an undertaking which could be at least as complicated as you want it to be :)

I would support this idea of combining the power of parallel computing
language and hardware--Julia and Parallela. Any followup on this thread? I
still found a whole bunch of failed trials on ARM ports... Wish the core team
of Julia can give a push.

What is the main difficulty with the Julia port to ARM?

Have you looked at the Julia issues?
As with most open source projects, the best way to get something to happen is to try doing it and report any problems you encounter.
