KAWASAKI ADDS MULTIPLE MIPS CORES TO IP PORTFOLIO.
MIPS Technologies (MIPS Technologies, Inc., Mountain View, CA, www.mips.com) Founded in 1984 as MIPS Computer Systems Inc., the company merged with SGI in 1992 and spun off as an independent entity once again in 2000. , Inc. (NASDAQ NASDAQ

U.S. market for over-the-counter securities. Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on :MIPS (Million Instructions Per Second) The execution speed of a computer. For example, .5 MIPS is 500,000 instructions per second; 100 MIPS is a hundred million instructions per second. ), Mountain View, Calif., a leading provider of industry-standard architectures, processors and analog IP for digital consumer, home networking, wireless, communications and business applications, has announced that Kawasaki Microelectronics (K-micro), a leader in advanced ASICs, has licensed multiple MIPS(R) cores for its ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) Pronounced "a-sick." A chip that is custom designed for a specific application rather than a general-purpose chip such as a microprocessor. IP portfolio. The synthesizable cores, including MIPS Technologies' highest-performance single-threaded core and its multi-threaded core, will enable K-micro to offer a range of optimized solutions to its customers in office automation, networking, and other key markets.
"Our customers will benefit from the breadth of MIPS processors that are now available as part of our IP portfolio," said Kyoichi Kissei, executive vice president of worldwide sales and marketing, K-micro. "The synthesizable MIPS cores combined with other key IP blocks in our portfolio create compelling solutions for our customers. A great example is our revolutionary Catseye subsystem, which incorporates dual MIPS32(R) 24Kf(TM) processor cores and other IP to enable the designers of office automation and network applications such as PON (Passive Optical Network) An optical point-to-multipoint access network. There are no optical repeaters or other active devices in a PON, hence the name "passive. to bring high-performance, cost-effective products to market more rapidly and efficiently. We look forward to developing even more MIPS-Based(TM) systems to serve a variety of markets."
"With this latest agreement, K-micro now has access to a wide range of MIPS cores, from low-power cores for mobile devices to multi-threaded cores that boost system performance for highly concurrent applications like VoIP, multifunction printers and DTV (Digital TeleVision) Transmitting TV using digital signals. The major DTV standards are ATSC (North America), DVB (Europe) and ISDB (Japan). All three use MPEG-2 video compression and Dolby Digital audio compression. DVB and ISDB also include MPEG audio compression. ," said Brad Holtzinger, vice president of worldwide sales at MIPS Technologies. "The ongoing relationship between K-micro and MIPS Technologies enables developers to bring new products to market quickly and affordably."
K-micro licensed the MIPS32(R) 24Kc(TM) Pro core, 24Kf Pro core, MIPS32(R) 24KEc(TM) Pro core, MIPS32(R) 24KEf(TM) Pro core, MIPS32(R) 34Kc(TM) Pro core, MIPS32(R) 34Kf(TM) Pro core, MIPS32(R) 74Kc(TM) core, and MIPS32(R) 74Kf(TM) core. K-micro already offers several other MIPS-Based cores as part of its ASIC IP portfolio.
