MIPS Technologies Inc. has licensed its MIPS32 4KEm processor core and latest SOC-it system controller to Thrane & Thrane, a manufacturer of terminals for global mobile satellite communications. The MIPS solution was chosen because Thrane needed performance of at least 200 Dhrystone MIPS for their mobile terminals, and the MIPS32 4KEm core and SOC-it system controller achieved 230.

"We chose MIPS Technologies' system-level solution over other IP processor options because it gives us the flexibility to exceed our performance goals while meeting the low power requirements demanded by mobile terminals," said Carsten Fallesen, ASIC project manager at Thrane. "In addition, as a synthesizable solution, it helps us keep costs down by giving us the flexibility to create an optimized platform relatively quickly and choose the silicon foundry process that best meets our needs."
