"For well over a decade, CES has been an ideal forum for our customers to showcase hundreds of MIPS-based products as the digital consumer market continues to explode worldwide", said Jack Browne, Vice President of Marketing at MIPS Technologies.
"This year was no exception, with MIPS at the centre of major product advancements in digital home entertainment, portable media, GPS, broadband access, next-generation networking and communications".
Honoured this year with a "Best of CES" Award was the MIPS-based LG BH100 high-definition video disc player from LG Electronics - the industry's first player capable of accommodating both Blu-ray and HD DVD formats.
Using Broadcom's MIPS-based BCM7440 Blu-ray and HD DVD SoC solution, the LG BH100 will allow consumers to purchase the high-definition discs of their choice without being limited to a single format.
Actions Semiconductor, one of China's leading fabless semiconductor companies, introduced its Series 13 product family, featuring the new dual- core architecture with a 32bit MIPS core and a 24bit DSP, supporting full video and audio functionality on larger QVGA colour displays.
