MIPS provides a complete portfolio of development tools to address all stages of product development. Whether you require state-of-the-art compiler technology, embedded RTOS and Linux support, EJTAG probes, or development boards, MIPS has the tools and software to address your development needs.
MIPS develops and maintains the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC). A wide range of other industry leading compilers are also available for MIPS processors.
MIPS offers a wide range of solutions for initializing MIPS cores and facilitating debugging. These include open-source and proprietary solutions to suit any requirement.
MIPS Debug Probes
MIPS develops and manufactures the SysProbe with support for MIPS (E)JTAG and cJTAG serial protocols. The probes support all the latest MIPS cores in the MIPS32, MIPS64 and microMIPS families.
NEW - Bus Blaster Low-cost Debug Adapter
Bus Blaster for MIPS is an economical debug adapter designed for supporting JTAG debug with a variety of MIPS processors including the M-class and I-class processors. Bus Blaster is supported by freely available Codescape Essentials SDK, Codescape Debugging, Codescape Eclipse IDE, and Open OCD debug software. See details on the Bus Blaster page.
MIPS uses Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) benchmarking tools extensively for our in-house developed and published benchmark results.
MIPS RTOS and IoT support
MIPS collaborates with open-source and commercial partners to provide MIPS support for many of the popular Real Time Operating Systems (RTOS) and the new generation of IoT specific operating systems. In addition, MIPS has developed the MIPS Embedded Operating System (MEOS) with Virtualization extensions that targets deeply embedded applications and the IoT space.
MIPS RTOS and IoT support
Fully supporting all MIPS architectural features, Codescape Debugger enables developers to make the most of software running on MIPS cores.
MIPS supplies a stand-alone, command-line interface that enables direct access to all Codescape debug probes. Supplied with comprehensive command reference documentation and examples, it enables development of functionally-complex scripts for performance optimization, testing, and low-level debug.
MIPS offers open-source and commercial software simulator packages. These simulators can be extended and integrated with other technologies to form a complete heterogeneous simulation environment. All MIPS simulators are carefully verified to be architecturally compliant.
There are hundreds of codecs and stacks that have been optimized for MIPS. Here is information on some of the most popular ones.
Powerful toolchain and development tools for MIPS at an unprecedented price
If you are developing platforms using MIPS M-class and I-class tools, you now have access to a powerful, comprehensive state-of-the-art toolchain and debug software with JTAG development tools for around $45 per development seat – no licenses required!
