Power.org Member Rapport, IBM Unveil Low-Power Cell Processor
By John Hazard


Chip maker Rapport Technologies and IBM have developed the Kilocore1025, a new breed of cell processor technology both companies claim will bring disruptive technologies to the low-power computing market.

The Kilcore 1025, will feature 1024 eight-bit processing elements together with a PowerPCTM core on a single, low-cost chip, allowing customers to put hundreds or thousands of parallel processing elements together on small chips, Rapport said.

The collaboration between Rapport and IBM was part of Power.org's cooperative environment and Big Blue's "Innovation that Matters" initiative that shares IBM researchers with partners and customers.

Microprocessor Advances

Rapport contributed software solutions as well as its unique Kilocore technology, and IBM provided its engineering services, foundry and Application-Specific Integrated Circuit technologies to produce the Kilcore 1025.

Mercury Computer, also a Power.org member, previously used IBM's Cell Broadband Engine processor, which IBM had developed as a game chip with Sony and Toshiba, to develop high computing, low-powered processors for medical and other devices.
