Processor architecture and core provider MIPS Technologies Inc. announced that support for the MIPS architecture is included in new SkypeKit developer tools currently available from Skype. Thanks to the SkypeKit closed beta program, MIPS Technologies has developed a Skype reference implementation for the MIPS architecture targeted at digital home applications.

MIPS Technologies marketing VP, Art Swift says, "We are pleased to offer our licensees to yet another key piece of the picture for next-generation connected devices. By participating in the SkypeKit beta program, our licensees and their customers can now develop Skype solutions to enable Skype users around the globe to communicate through a range of MIPS-based products." He adds, "The MIPS architecture offers compelling performance and power consumption advantages. These advantages, together with the work we are doing with platforms such as Skype, Android, Adobe Flash Player 10.1, Yahoo TV Widgets and others, are enabling our customers to quickly and easily create the next generation of innovative SoCs."

The kit enables developers to build Skype functionality into MIPS-based devices such as DTVs, set-top boxes and digital media adaptors.
