MIPS Technologies Inc. announced that NEC Electronics Corp. has selected the MIPS32 24KEc and 24KEf cores to power advanced solutions for the digital home.

"Leveraging the superior cost advantages, low-power capabilities and performance of the 24KE cores allows us to design and deliver sophisticated and compelling next-generation solutions for the digital home," said Masao Hirasawa, general manager, digital AV systems division, NEC.

"Over the years, our close collaboration with NEC has resulted in award-winning MIPS-Based designs in millions of digital consumer products worldwide," said John Bourgoin, president and chief executive officer at MIPS Technologies. "We're excited to expand our presence in the digital home market in Japan and living rooms around the globe."

The MIPS32 24KE core family leverages on 24K microarchitecture while incorporating the MIPS DSP Application Specific Extension. These instructions provide signal processing performance of up to 3x over a range of embedded applications compared to RISC implementations without the DSP ASE. The 24KE family provides efficient DSP capability while significantly reducing overall SoC die area, cost and power consumption.
