In a previous article I described the basic concepts of computer virtualization and how the MIPS architecture efficiently implements hardware virtualization. This article will focus on multithreading in an attempt to define what it is, and why it’s useful. A thread is a sequence of instructions. Multithreading refers to the ability of a given processor (e.g. CPU, GPU, etc.) to … Continued

In an article I’ve published last year, I described how our new MIPS M-class Warrior CPUs have been designed for the security-driven requirements of next-generation connected processors. One of the unique features of MIPS microcontroller-class processors is the ability to support full hardware virtualization and multiple trusted execution environments (TEEs). For example, our latest M5150 MCU can support up to … Continued
