Abstract

The Cell Broadband Engine is a hybrid processor which consists of a PowerPC core and eight vector co-processors on a single die. Its unique design poses a number of language design and implementation challenges. To begin exploring these challenges, we have ported the ttt to the Cell Broadband Engine. The ttt is a small, portable runtime for concurrent languages and can be used as a platform for experimenting with language concepts. This paper describes a preliminary attempt at porting the ttt runtime to the Cell Broadband Engine and explores ways to program it using a concurrent language.
