MIPS® Navigator Integrated Component Suite (ICS) Wins Leading Product Award from EDN China


MIPS Technologies’ Development Tools Recognized for Innovation by Popular Electronic Design Magazine

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for home entertainment, communications, networking and portable multimedia markets, today announced that it received a Leading Product Award in the fifth annual EDN China Innovation Awards. The MIPS® Navigator Integrated Component Suite (ICS), which enables embedded developers to code, debug and analyze Linux systems more easily on MIPS-BasedTM SoCs and embedded systems, was recognized in the development tools and software category.

“Today, an increasing number of embedded applications use Linux-based platforms, but there are numerous challenges in coding, debugging and analyzing Linux targets, and available tools have historically not been up to these challenges,” said Art Swift, vice president of marketing for MIPS Technologies. “Now, MIPS Navigator ICS provides these tools with a complete development environment that is easy to install and use. It goes beyond traditional development tools and methods with unique approaches to Linux development that can boost productivity for a large majority of MIPS developers. We’re pleased that EDN China, one of China’s most prestigious electronic design magazines, has recognized this innovation.”

MIPS Navigator ICS includes unique tools and plug-ins for coding, debugging and analyzing embedded systems, providing significant speedup for applications. Navigator ICS is unmatched in its ability to support debug and profiling of Linux environments from the kernel up to application code. Navigator ICS is optimized for the unique features of the MIPS architecture and cores, and is built to harness the power of MIPS System NavigatorTM probes. Coupled with MIPS Technologies’ state-of-the-art On-Chip Instrumentation (OCI®), the suite offers customers a unique view into their SoC operation.

“The annual EDN China Innovation Awards are designed to raise awareness of leading edge technologies and applications within the Chinese electronic design industry,” said William Zhang, publisher of EDN China. “The products we select are those that offer unique and compelling advantages to electronic designers. Navigator ICS brings together unique tools and technologies for MIPS development in a cohesive, off-the-shelf product that offers new and innovative components for Linux development.”

Leading products were assessed and selected based on innovative product design concept and technical performance by a panel of EDN China judges, including industry experts and specialists from China’s leading OEM companies, academic institutes, universities and EDN China’s editorial board.
