Wave Computing®, the Silicon Valley company that is accelerating artificial intelligence (AI) from the datacenter to the edge, announced the first release of its MIPS Open™ program components based on Wave’s renowned MIPS instruction set architecture (ISA) and recent architectural extensions. The intent of the MIPS Open initiative is to accelerate adoption of the MIPS architecture by chip developers, ecosystem partners, and academic communities. Under the MIPS Open program, participants have full access to the most recent version, R6, of the 32-and-64-bit MIPS architecture free of charge – with no licensing or royalty fees. Additionally, registered MIPS Open program participants are licensed under Wave’s hundreds of existing global patents.
