Toshiba has announced a collaboration with Sigma Designs to offer a new Linux platform based on the integrated TX4938 MIPS-based TX System RISC microprocessors and the Sigma EM8620L digital media processor.

The platform should give customers a quick-time-to-market decoder solution, says Toshiba, for a range of digital multimedia appliances. That includes DVD players, IP set-top boxes and digital media players.

This platform can be plugged directly into the PCI slot on the Toshiba RBTX4938 reference board, or can be plugged into the Toshiba AVM49R multimedia reference platform. The platform is provided in a compact-enough 6.7 inch by 6.7 inch mini-ITX form factor, says Toshiba.

It's got high definition WMV 9 support, too. If you're after the Toshiba AVM49R Multimedia Reference Platform Hardware Developer Kit you can expect to pay $10,000 per licence direct from TAEC. The Toshiba RBTX4938 reference board is available from Toshiba at just under $2,000 each.
