SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA TAPS SUN FOR MICROSPARC CORES

By CBR Staff Writer

Scientific-Atlanta Inc has gone to Sun Microsystems Inc for its microSparc II RISC processor core, which it will use as the basis for the chips in its Explorer 2000 digital set-top boxes. Scientific-Atlanta recently received an order from Time Warner Cable for 550,000 of the boxes, with Toshiba America Inc and Pioneer making up the rest of the order for one million microSparc II-based boxes. Scientific-Atlanta is expected to produce something similar to Sun 32-bit microSparc IIep embedded RISC implementation (CI No 3,118).
