Last week, an important announcement signaled the continuation as well as extension of support for the MIPS architecture within the Sourcery CodeBench embedded development environment. Imagination Technologies, who acquired MIPS recently, announced expanding their partnership with Mentor Graphics for Sourcery CodeBench support for all major MIPS CPU families.
Imagination Technologies is well known for its cutting edge mobile graphics capabilities. With the addition of MIPS to their portfolio, the next generation of Imagination SoCs will undoubtedly raise the bar in a variety of markets. One of the perks to being a major technology partner is front row seat view (and participation) of this evolution!
Sourcery CodeBench has supported MIPS cores since its CodeSourcery days (under the Sourcery g++ toolchain brand). To extend this relationship and be picked as a key enabler of Imagination Technologies’ MIPS-based ecosystem is a matter of pride as well as a testament to Mentor Embedded’s continued technical innovation and commitment to open source.
