Very nice step to promote MIPS 64

It is very nice to know that support for MIPS 64 is made available on QEMU. This will really promote the use of MIPS 64 in new as well as existing systems. Does QEMU require any specific hardware to simulate MIPS 64 on a normal PC

Who are the licensees of this design?

"All this aims at the larger networking and storage applications for customers such as Broadcom and Cavium"

 

But haven't both Broadcom and Cavium announced that their next generation processors will be ARM based?

 

Nick, did Imagination indicate that this new core will be licensed by Cavium and Broadcom? That would be worthwile to clarify and fact-check. Otherwise this is a just a "press-release" article for imagination.

The latest Cavium part is ARM-based yes as mentioned in the ARM server story, but Imagination is also including Cavium as a continuing MIPS customer without giving away its customer's product roadmap and the 6400 is very much aimed at Cavium as a customer - this is why it has been an interesting set of stories over the last week

I saw Broadcom's CE division at a show recently, they are still shipping new MIPS products but I saw no use of new core designs. A shame really because I have a soft spot for MIPS.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
