Toshiba Announces Cell Chip Set and Cell Reference Set

Toshiba announces Cell Chip Set and Cell Reference Set. As you know the IBM, Sony and Toshiba developed Cell chip powers the Sony PS3. Toshiba is enabling now other companies to develop their own Cell Chip based devices.

The Cell Chip Set consists of the Cell processor, a Super Companion Chip (the interface between Cell and external audio/visual input/output equipment) and a power supply system chip optimized to drive the Cell microprocessor. The Cell Reference Set development platform consists of a Cell microprocessor, peripheral chips mounted on a printed circuit board with a general-use interface, peripheral equipment, such as DVD and HDD drives, and cooling equipment required for stable operation, all housed in case. The available software includes operating systems and middleware and software development tools. This combination of hardware and software reduces development costs, cuts turnaround time and simplifies testing.
Toshiba expects to start marketing the chips set and reference set in April 2006 or later.
