What a long, strange trip it’s been. MIPS Technologies no longer designs MIPS processors. Instead, it’s joined the RISC-V camp, abandoning its eponymous architecture for one that has strong historical and technical ties. The move apparently heralds the end of the road for MIPS as a CPU family, and a further (slight) diminution in the … Read More → "Wait, What? MIPS Becomes RISC-V"

Like the proverbial carrot-on-a-stick, FPGA-based acceleration has been right in front of our noses, just out of reach, for the better part of three decades. We move closer, and the prize moves farther away. Every few years, we feel some tangible progress, and perhaps cut the distance in half, but asymptotes can be unfriendly bedfellows. … Read More → "Mipsology Brings “Zero Effort” Inference"
“What a long, strange trip it’s been.” – Grateful Dead If you think designing a microprocessor is complicated, try following its ownership saga. The tangled trail of licensing rights, ownership, royalties, and politics surrounding the MIPS microprocessor family took another weird turn last week, with the result that MIPS is now in Chinese hands. Sort … Read More → "Loose Lips Sink MIPS"
“You can always tell an engineer. But you can’t tell him much.” — anonymous If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. At first blush, that would appear to be the strategy underlying Wave Computing’s recent move to open-source the MIPS microprocessor architecture, which it just acquired in June. But there’s a bit more to it … Read More → "MIPS Turns Another Corner"
