Nowdays MIPS microprocessor cores are used in Microchip PIC32 microcontrollers, Wi-Fi router chips from Qualcomm / Atheros and MediaTek / Ralink, Samsung Artik 1 platform positioned for Internet of Things, and Mobileye chips for automotive electronics. MIPS core licensees include Russian companies Baikal Electronics, the designer of Baikal-T embedded microprocessor, as well as ELVEES-NeoTek, the developer of ELISE chip for smart cameras.
In my presentation I will speak about various opportunities for Russian software developers connected to the ecosystem of these chips. The opportunities include development of hypervisors for virtualization, which is important for the market of Internet of Things, with its high requirements for security; the development of embedded operating systems that use hardware-supported multi-threading; and the development of heterogeneous multi-core systems that combine CPUs and GPUs for applications in artificial intelligence and computer vision. MIPS I6400 is positioned for the latter market, and I have been lucky to be a member of this processor’s design team at this time.
