MIPS Technologies Inc. and the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) have joined hands to encourage SoC design innovation in Korea. Through the agreement, the ETRI IT SoC Industry Promotion Center has been granted access to a range of high-performance MIPS32 processor cores that it can leverage in SoC design projects with startup incubator companies.

"The MIPS architecture is well-respected throughout the world for its high-performance, low-power and elegant design, and it is used widely in DTVs, portable media players, automotive infotainment and other consumer products. Agreements such as this agreement with MIPS Technologies make it easy for designers to adopt innovative technologies, ultimately helping to grow the IC design infrastructure in Korea. We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationship with MIPS," said Ho-Gil Cho, team leader, ETRI.

"We are pleased to work with ETRI to provide startup IC design companies with microprocessor IP options," said Art Swift, VP of marketing at MIPS. "Companies who choose to use MIPS cores through their relationship with ETRI will benefit from cost-effective, high-performance, low-power solutions and a broad supporting ecosystem that can provide differentiation for their SoC designs. Our work with the Android platform, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and other key technologies make the MIPS architecture an ideal fit for next-generation smart phones and other consumer products."
