The article specifically says: "Once the Imagination-MIPS deal is completed, MIPS royalties will go to Imagination, not to AST"

According to Imagination, that is NOT the case. I will be posting a follow-up anaysis piece shortly. But in a nut shell, Imagination CEO made it very clear during the conference call that his company will move the MIPS architecture "go forward."

Rick, I added a few updates to the story above, after the Imagination/MIPS conference call. MIPS patent royalties will NOT go to the consortium, but to Imagination.

Clearly the merger gives ARM a little more competition as the game increasingly shifts to supplying a full suite of SoC blocks. Imagination will gain leverage selling graphics and other cores into set-tops where MIPS is strong and Imagination could help MIPS gain more traction in mobile.

It's not clear at this point if Apple is part of the AST. This has not been confirmed.

MIPS has some very strong patents on multi-threading. Getting those out of harms-way is a very shrewd move by ARM.

So when do Apple find themselves being sued for infringement. Without doubt they will infringe somewhere in their processors. the shoe will be on the other foot then........

We are fully aware of MIPS' China factor involved here. We need to hear from Imagination in regards to their plan.
