PS3 fab-to-lab, Part 1: Build Linux lab equipment

IBM RSS feed Power Arch writes "How do you take the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.) processor from an
off-the-shelf Sony PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) and use it to construct a piece of
Linux-based laboratory equipment (in essence, taking the Cell/B.E. from fab to hab
to lab)? In this series, Lewin Edwards shows you how to go from game console to
simple audio-bandwidth spectrum analyzer and function generator. First up, uncover
the design intent of the project and then make a close inspection of the details of
the user interface implementation as you start a journey to generate and analyze
signals on the Cell/B.E. processor."
