Actually, the Andes is seldom to be heard. Although its IP core is widely used on many hardware modules, we only know the name of IC manufactuer.


It is quite different from ARM or MIPS. These two are known to every hardware and software engineer. They have already established their ecosystem. The IC manufactuer would like to say theire CPU is based on ARM or MIPS architecture when they introduce their CPU to engineers. However, Andes was always silent. Noone would like to add its name, because seldom engineers are hear about it.


In a word, there is a long long way for Andes to rumble in CPU war. In the CPU world, it is quite different from peripherial modules.

At Mindtree we have integrated our Bluetooth Smart IP (Both controller and software stack) with Andes CPU for a lead customer in China and have not had any major issues.
