MIPS-based 64bit products took two awards at Microprocessor Report's Analysts' Choice Awards dinner, held last Monday evening at the Embedded Processor Forum (EPF). In fact, they won in two of the three categories relevant to MIPS-based devices. MIPS Technologies' MIPS64 20Kc core, the industry's highest performance licensable core, was named best high-performance processor core.
And Broadcom's BCM1250 processor, which features two MIPS64-based cores running at 800MHz, was named best high-performance embedded processor.
Of the five nominees in this category, three were MIPS-based 64bit processors: the BCM1250 as well as NEC's VR 5500 and PMC-Sierra's RM9000X2.
