%X The Cell Broadband Engine is a hybrid processor which
   consists of a PowerPC core and eight vector co\-processors
   on a single die. Its unique design poses a number of
   language design and implementation challenges. To begin
   exploring these challenges, we have ported the
   Transterpreter to the Cell Broadband Engine. The
   Transterpreter is a small, portable runtime for concurrent
   languages and can be used as a platform for experimenting
   with language concepts. This paper describes a preliminary
   attempt at porting the Transterpreter runtime to the Cell
   Broadband Engine and explores ways to program it using a
   concurrent language.
