CNET reports startup Tilera introduced a 32-core processor for embedded applications:
Tilera, which made a splash last year when it introduced its first 64-core processor, announced a scaled-down 36-core Tile processor on Monday, in order to broaden its market reach.
The TilePro36 "is giving us a midrange product. This type of device would be used in a high-end video conferencing (system)," said Bob Doud, who is the director of marketing at Tilera. The TilePro36 chip is also targeted at applications such as networking and security applications. "Anything in the one- to five-gigabit-per-second range," Doud said.
Along these lines, Doud also clarified the markets that Tilera is not targeting. "We target the embedded space. We don't target products like servers and home PCs," he said.
