MIPS MIPS is a leading provider of intellectual property (IP) processor architectures and cores which are broadly used in products such as consumer entertainment, home networking and infrastructure equipment, LTE modems and embedded applications. MIPS is also at the heart of a growing number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and emerging intelligent applications including autonomous vehicles. Originally founded in 1984 as MIPS Computer Systems Inc. by researchers from Stanford University, today MIPS designs have shipped in billions of units across the globe and have even reached the outer edges of our solar system.

Imperas and OVP have been working with MIPS since late 2008 to develop and verify OVP models of MIPS processor cores. These models are validated under the MIPS-Verified(tm) program. Visit the MIPS website here and the OVPworld Imperas library pages here. You can download OVP MIPS models from here.

In February 2011 Imperas announced that MIPS had licensed an OEM version of OVPsim to provide to its partners and licensees.
