The 64bit MIPS-based TX99/H4 RISC microprocessor from Toshiba Corp. has been utilized as the controller for Canon Inc.'s latest multi-function digital copiers, including the Color imageRUNNER iR C3170F. The microprocessor was manufactured and is being shipped through Toshiba's Ooita fab in Japan.

Considered as the highest-performance microprocessor in the Toshiba TX system RISC product family, the TX99/H4 microprocessor utilizes the MIPS64 25Kf processor core. At 800MHz, the microprocessor is suitable for digital multi-function copiers requiring high-speed processing and higher quality for complex designs.

"Our relationship with both Toshiba and Canon extends through many years, and we are delighted to continue to provide both companies with our industry-leading architecture and high performance core technology," said Russ Bell, VP of marketing for MIPS Technologies. "Leveraging our strengths and their vast product design expertise, Toshiba and Canon can deliver feature- rich printers to meet consumer demand."
