Toshiba readies Cell processor design platform

By Derek Sooman on
As from April 2006, Toshiba will make available a hardware development platform for applications based on the Cell processor. The so-called ‘Cell Reference Set’ development platform was co-developed with Sony and IBM, and will incorporate a Cell processor, as well as peripheral chips mounted on a PCB with a general-use interface.

Toshiba says it is targeting companies designing consumer electronics and communications products “that draw on the powerful broadband capabilities of the Cell microprocessor,” and its "unsurpassed multitasking and real-time processing functions."
