Fresco heads for DSP siliconBy Chris Williams. Published: 17th Aug 2004, 23:23:12 | Permalink | Printable
Wish you were hereFrom the Where-Are-They-Now, or to be more precise, Where-Is-It-Now department comes the news that the ANT Fresco web browser is heading for DSP based silicon, following a coupling with Texas Instruments' "digital media processors".
The union of the web browser and the TI DM64x processor would appear to open the possibility of interweaving multimedia streams and HTML rendered information, in hardware. It's a scary thought, and a long leap away from the old RISC OS desktop incarnation of Fresco. In addition, Fresco began shipping in Spring this year to the German cable TV market, as it was bundled on Pace cable TV STBs.
