Over the past year, we have seen a lot of interest from partners and customers in our Warrior families of MIPS CPUs. Today I’d like to reveal some of the progress we’ve made with the 64-bit MIPS I6400 processor which is now gaining traction across a range of applications. The I6400 processor implements MIPS64 Release 6 (the latest version of … Continued

A few months back I reported on the MIPS-based Mongoose-V chip guiding the New Horizons probe in its quest to reach Pluto. The story captured the headlines of many publications and generated many questions about the MIPS architecture (more on this in a separate article). Today I’d like to focus on another important space mission called Hayabusa-2 that is currently … Continued
