MIPS Technologies Wins Leading Product Award from EDN China


MIPS Technologies, Inc., (NASDAQ: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard architectures, processor cores and analog IP for digital consumer, home networking, wireless, communications and business applications, today announced that its high-performance MIPS32® 74KTM processor core was awarded a Leading Product Award in the Microprocessor and DSP category from EDN China during its annual Innovation Awards ceremony. The 74K cores were recognized as the embedded industry’s first fully synthesizable 32-bit processors to achieve operating frequencies greater than 1GHz in a generic 65nm process technology.

A panel of EDN China judges, consisting of industry experts and specialists from China’s leading OEM companies, academic institutes, universities and EDN China’s editorial board chose this year’s finalists from a pool of nearly 200 entries, based on innovative product design concept and technical performance. Readers and registered users of EDN China were then invited to vote for winners in nine product categories.

“We are honored to be recognized by EDN China and its readers for our innovative 74K processor core, which is uniquely designed for high-volume applications throughout the digital living room,” said Jack Browne, vice president of marketing for MIPS Technologies. “China’s rapid growth has created unprecedented demand for products like DTV, set-top boxes, DVD players and recorders, broadband access, PON, residential gateways and VoIP, markets where MIPS Technologies holds a commanding position. Demand will continue to increase as consumers look for more performance, greater functionality and connectivity, lower cost and longer battery life in their devices.”

“The goal of the EDN China Innovation Awards is to raise awareness of leading edge technologies and applications within the Chinese electronic design industry by recognizing companies for product innovation,” said associate publisher of EDN China Mu Qiang. “The 74K core is a great example of innovative technology that can benefit SoC developers with the high performance and low power consumption they need for their next-generation embedded designs.”

The 74K core family is designed to work with generic standard cells, memories and EDA design flows without the need for premium physical IP or costly structured logic and custom design flows. The processor family is optimized to deliver exceptional performance levels as well as area- and power-efficiencies required for today’s complex SoC designs. Long-time MIPS Technologies licensee Broadcom Corporation was the first company to license the 74K core in January 2007 as an early access customer, and Infineon Technologies licensed the core in August 2007.
