Junko: How about going back to MIPS and do a followup? They just put out great numbers again. TIA.

Great achievement in Q4. However, one can easily get confused at the remark made about MIPS market share of more than 50 percent in wireless and wired. Many views can be derived accompanied with details. Market research firms look into metrics such as 32/64-bit, MPU, MCU, CPU, GPU, ASSP, FPGA and others and develop market share position of one architecture vs the other in a given market segment. The types of architectures typically being considered in the calculation of market share are: ARM, MIPS, Power Architecture, x86 and others. In the context of this article we are looking at Power Architecture vs MIPS. According to IMS Research, Power Architecture is #1 worldwide market share leader in 32-bit MPU and CPU for 2009. Furthermore, Power Architecture is ahead of MIPS not only in Mobile Telecom and Fixed Telecom but also in Automotive, Computer, Industrial, Medical, Mil & Aero and FPGA.

All I can say is WOW!!! That's way to go man. There are lots news about ARM,Intel,PowerPC and I was wondering why there isn't any news about MIPS. But finally there is one with a BANG. World is not over and I know all the time there are many CEO's out there who are turning around business for many companies. Wish I could be one in future :)

When I write stories, I usually refrain from giving too much credit to a company's CEO or management. But MIPS falls into an exception. I haven't seen a new CEO making such an impact on the market for a long time. Of course, great financial results help. After all, the business is business. If you are not making money, you aren't worth much. And yet, there is something about Sandeep Vij: his straight talk and his attitude of rolling up his sleeves and going after new customers appear to impress a lot of us including financial analysts. Is your CEO also like Sandeep?
