what's the logic behind this comment, Chinese bought TI? or part of TI?

Perhaps US government may allow Chinese to buy MIPS, as they did with TI in the past.

The Chinese companies don't like to pay royalties and instead like to copy an architecture. I don't see them wanting to move to this business model.

I think Cisco, Cavium and Broadcom are licensees;MIPS is the licensor. Apologies for nitpicking. It would seem possible that ownership of MIPS by one of these licensees would frighten off the others. SPARC is controlled by a consortium isn't it? As the Chinese have shown long term interest - up to government level - in the MIPS ISA I would have thought that an attractive proposition has presented itself.

It would be a very interesting turn for a China concern to buy MIPS and earn royalties from US chip makers. But as you say in this mobile and power constrained era the most interesting cores to be licesing these days are ARM ones.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
