MIPS Technologies has added new companies planning to develop MIPS microprocessor based systems that support the Microsoft Windows CE operating system for embedded and hand held applications.
Integrated Device Technologies (IDT), LSI Logic and Quantum Effect Design have agreed to join the MIPS Windows CE Development Alliance which also includes MIPS licensees Toshiba, Philips Semiconductors and NEC.
The deals represent a wider acceptance for the MIPS architecture as MIPS Technologies tries to regain market momentum as chief rival ARM continues to rack up new licensees and gain market share in terms of unit shipments.
MIPS is trying to expand its customer base which currently is very dependent on sales of chips for Sony Playstation and Nintendo 64 video games consoles.
