MIPS Prodigy 64-Bit Multi-threaded Multiprocessor IP Core

MIPS Technologies will offer an IP core that combines a 64-bit processor architecture with simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) technology. Code named Prodigy, the IP family enables engineers to quickly and easily develop MIPS64 solutions at a fraction of the cost and time it would take to develop a 64-bit core themselves. The 64-bit core will be available later this year.

Prodigy IP Core Highlights

  • First IP core to combine a 64-bit processor architecture with simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) technology
  • 64-bit architecture, SMT technology and coherent multiprocessing in an off-the-shelf IP core
  • Provides fast path to performance, efficiency and scalability
  • 64-bit architectures enables practically unlimited address space
  • Helps designers to quickly and easily develop MIPS64 solutions at a fraction of the cost and time it would take to develop a 64-bit core themselves
  • Engineers can leverage the infrastructure and ecosystem that are already in place for the MIPS64 architecture, multiprocessing and multi-threading on MIPS
  • Will offer seamless code compatibility
  • Upward migration path between the MIPS32 and MIPS64 architectures
  • Ideal for advanced networking, storage, mobile and digital consumer designs
  • Will be launched later this year
