MIPS Technologies today announced it has entered into separate definitive agreements with Bridge Crossing, an acquisition vehicle of Allied Security Trust, and Imagination Technologies Group with net proceeds of approximately $7.31 per share in cash to each holder of MIPS common stock.
MIPS Technologies and Marmalade have today revealed that the new Marmalade Software Development Kit 6.1 provides full support for the MIPS architecture. Built using the SDK, several popular Android games, including Coconut Dodge, Rolly Poly and Tonga, are now available for MIPS-Based Android devices via Google Play.
MIPS have today released news that several leading app and game developers are using the latest version of the Android Native Development Kit to bring their applications to the MIPS architecture. With Release 8 of the Android NDK available from Google, these developers are easily bringing their natively developed Android applications to MIPS in support of the growing number of MIPS-Based Android products in the market, many of which will be available via Google Play.
During my keynote presentation at COMPUTEX Mobile Forum 2012 in Taipei the week before last, I spoke about application development on Android today. In contrast to the often negative portrayals of today's Android apps development landscape, I wanted to offer a more positive point of view, highlighting the significant progress that has been made towards unification.
MIPS recently commissioned a survey to determine the top concerns among design engineers. The survey was performed by the independent technology marketing firm McClenahan Bruer Communications, which queried 110 engineers culled from a reputable, third-party database. The survey was one of the many pieces of supporting research for the May 10th launch of our new Aptiv Generation microprocessor cores.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. announced that its MIPS64 architecture is powering the new 28nm OCTEON III MIPS64 family of multicore processors from Cavium, Inc. OCTEON III processors are designed for the enterprise, data center, access and service provider markets, which require increasing support for converged data, voice and video. To address this need, the OCTEON III family introduced today by Cavium integrates 1 to 48 MIPS64 cores at up to 2.5GHz, providing up to 120GHz of 64-bit compute power per chip.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has joined the Renesas Electronics SoC Partner Program. Renesas Electronics Corporation is a long-time licensee of the MIPS64 architecture and processor cores including the MIPS32 74K, 24KE and 4KE cores.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. has announced that Android 4.0.3, the latest release of the Android 4.0 platform also known as "Ice Cream Sandwich," is now available for the MIPS architecture. The MIPS port was completed within 24 hours of being released by Google into open source on December 16th.
Recently, news came out about Intel's decision to close its Digital Home business, basically abandoning its "smart TV" initiative. So with Intel out of the smart TV picture, what does this mean for the industry? Who is the processor winner? According to a recent article on VentureBeat (*), "A potential winner here is Mips, which has been designing chips for Android-based smart TVs."
MIPS Technologies has announced that Axis Communications leveraged the multi-threaded MIPS32 34Kc processor cores for a new line of network video cameras. The new AXIS Q1602/-E indoor/outdoor cameras with Axis' unique Lightfinder technology are designed for video surveillance in low-light conditions.
MIPS Technologies has announced the appointment of Gideon Intrater as the company's new vice president of marketing, reporting to President and CEO Sandeep Vij. With more than 20 years of semiconductor industry experience, Mr. Intrater was previously the vice president of product marketing and applications for MIPS. He originally joined the company in 1998 as vice president of solutions architecture.
MIPS Technologies and SYSGO, have announced they are collaborating to bring SYSGO's embedded virtualization technology to MIPS32 processor cores. SYSGO's PikeOS Real-Time Operating System is a hypervisor virtualization platform that allows several applications and operating systems such as Android and Linux to run securely in parallel on a single hardware platform. With PikeOS, MIPS' licensees have flexibility in deploying CPU resources for different tasks, potentially eliminating the need for a dedicated security CPU in their system.
MIPS Technologies has announced the appointment of William Slater as the company's new vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer, reporting to President and CEO Sandeep Vij. As previously announced, current CFO Maury Austin is retiring from the Company. His departure will be effective as of November 9, 2011, and Mr. Slater will officially join the Company on November 10, 2011.
MIPS Technologies has announced that the new LTE SoC from 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A. is powered by MIPS industry-standard processors. Targeted at smartphones and tablets, the SQN3110 SoC is Sequans' second generation LTE baseband chip. It incorporates dual MIPS32 24Kc processor cores, and is the first of a planned series of MIPS-Based LTE chips from Sequans.
Baseband processors for mobile devices typically run at as slow a clock speed as possible in order to minimize power consumption, generally in the order of 250-500MHz. However, the latest air interface standards are dramatically increasing throughputs, which is putting pressure on baseband processors to increase their performance, while simultaneously reducing latency. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. LTE, or Long Term Evolution, is the latest air interface standard and is currently available from operators like Verizon, NTT DoCoMo and Telia Sonera.
MIPS Technologies, Inc. a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, announced today that Loongson Technology Corp. Ltd. has licensed the MIPS32 and MIPS64 architectures for continued development of MIPS-Based Loongson CPU cores. With these processors, Loongson Technology is targeting a range of applications from high-end computing, cloud servers and terminals to embedded applications such as industrial control, smart meters, automotive, GPS and mobile devices.
MIPS Continues to Gain Traction in Mobile with New Ultra Low-Power SoC from Ingenic - MIPS Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, and Ingenic Semiconductor, a leading China-based CPU provider for mobile multimedia applications, today announced that they are collaborating to bring Android™ 3.0, also known as 'Honeycomb', to Ingenic's new JZ4770 mobile applications processor, which leverages a MIPS-Based™ XBurst™ CPU running at 1GHz.
