On Wednesday 23rd March we will hold a webinar entitled ‘Micro-virtualize or die! Securing connected MCUs with OmniShield’. There are some that might baulk at the use of this rather hyperbolic title but we think it’s actually quite reasonable. After all, as the internet of things starts to coalesce from theory into reality and the world gets more connected every … Continued

Embedded computing is currently enjoying a rebirth thanks to a technology called virtualization. It started when Imagination became the first semiconductor IP company to introduce virtualization to microcontroller-type CPUs and then demonstrated how developers could take advantage of this feature by using a lightweight hypervisor optimized for MIPS M-class MCUs. We then showed how the same virtualization technology can be … Continued

Every day we hear some new horror story about security, whether it’s consumers impacted by phishing or other intrusions in their own applications and devices, or via enterprise breaches in an increasingly long list of corporations. Security matters While we would hope that consumers and enterprises are paying attention (and doing something about it), some new studies came out this … Continued

When we first introduced the breakthrough MIPS Warrior family, we promised to deliver a disruptive and comprehensive roadmap of 32 and 64-bit CPUs that incorporate new, innovative architectural features and provide best-in-class performance and efficiency for a wide range of applications. The first CPU we launched was MIPS P5600, a high-end 32-bit processor targeting ultimate performance in apps processors for … Continued

When it comes to operating systems, Linux® is perhaps the world’s most popular open source OS. Linux has been running on thousands of MIPS devices that have shipped in very large volume (north of several billions of units). The MIPS ISA (MIPS32, MIPS64 and microMIPS) is fully supported in Linux, with Imagination and our licensees providing frequent patches for new … Continued
