Shenzhen Integrated Circuit Design Industrial Center has licensed MIPS Technologies Inc.'s low-power MIPS32, M4K, and MIPS32 4Kc processor cores for next-generation IC designs. The agreement provides Chinese IC design firms with access to some of the industry's most cost-effective, low-power cores, along with the broad ecosystem of tools, software and services that support the industry standard MIPS architecture.

"We are focused on expanding our silicon intellectual property (IP) portfolio with the most popular IP to assist IC designers in China in designing successful SoCs for their customers," said Shengming Zhou, director of Shenzhen Integrated Circuit Design Industrial Center. "We believe that IP reuse is critical to furthering the IC design industry in China, and are pleased to engage with MIPS Technologies for its trusted and proven technology. With a great balance of power, performance and price, the MIPS cores are applicable for a wide variety of next-generation embedded designs and MCU-based applications."

"We are pleased that Shenzhen Integrated Circuit Design Industrial Center has licensed MIPS cores as part of its silicon IP portfolio for China's SoC designers," said Brad Holtzinger, VP of worldwide sales at MIPS. "The center and others like it are clearly an important resource for growing China's IC design industry. We look forward to providing MIPS Technologies' cores to enable the Center's partners and customers to bring differentiated products to market on-time at the lowest possible cost."

MIPS32 4K cores implemented in hundreds of SoC designsare designed for SoC applications that require an easy-to-use and cost-efficient embedded processor. The M4K core sets a new standard for 32bit cores targeted for embedded designs and microcontroller applications. It features high frequency, small die area and very low power consumption.
