The ‘Things’ part of the Internet of Things (IoT) is already around us, with the relevant technology embedded in smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes and a rapidly increasing number of other consumer and industrial devices. The power of IoT is really the opportunity presented when these always-on devices can communicate not just with each other but also with cloud-based resources, services and applications.
Our MIPS architecture is already established as a leader for traditional network gateway and router applications. The broad portfolio of MIPS processors can be applied to all levels of networked IoT devices, ensuring the highest level of security across an entire system. MIPS M-class processors are ideal for 32-bit microcontrollers in embedded applications, offering high performance per size. MIPS I-class processors offer incredible scalability and performance for embedded Linux and high-end RTOS, and for systems requiring significant local intelligence.
