NEC Electronics has now licensed MIPS Technologies' 64-bit architecture for use in the company's digital consumer ASSPs and VR series line of products

NEC Electronics has renewed its MIPS architecture licence and licensed MIPS Technologies' 64-bit architecture for use in the company's digital consumer ASSPs and VR series line of products. This follows the company's earlier announcement in January when NEC Electronics licensed the MIPS32 24KEc and 24KEf processor cores to power advanced solutions for the digital home.

'We are pleased with our 15-year collaboration with MIPS Technologies and look forward to continuing our relationship as we expand NEC Electronics' offerings worldwide', said Yoichi Yano, Senior Vice President, NEC Electronics Corporation.

'MIPS has long helped us leverage compelling design advantages and performance results that enable us to consistently innovate for the global digital living room and other embedded markets'.

'By adopting the MIPS64 architecture, the next-generation VR series Embedded Processor Core will be MIPS-verified, allowing us to offer the highest quality, robust solutions across our entire customer base', said Shigeo Niitsu, Vice President, Second Systems Operations Unit, NEC Electronics Corporation.

'As a global market leader in digital electronics, we are honoured to extend our long-standing, successful alliance with NEC Electronics', said John Bourgoin, President and CEO at MIPS Technologies.

'The growth of the digital home market continues to be remarkable and we are excited to be part of one of NEC Electronics' impressive technology initiatives and worldwide charter'.

The MIPS64 architecture provides the essential foundation for robust, high-performance MIPS processors and offers upward compatibility to the MIPS32 architecture.

MIPS Technologies began developing its 64-bit processor architecture more than a decade ago, based on the leading-edge RISC (reduced instruction set computer) research of MIPS co-founder John Hennessy.

The market acceptance of the MIPS64 architecture has significantly deepened over the years to include a number of key, high-growth markets, such as high-end digital consumer, high-end storage systems, high-performance MFP, routers and switches and in-car navigation systems.
