MIPS Technologies Opens Development Center in Denmark

November 20, 1998

Mountain View, CA — MIPS Technologies, Inc. announced that it will officially open its fully staffed, MIPS Denmark Development Center (MDDC) in Copenhagen, Denmark on December 1, 1998. The Danish team is comprised of 24 full time employees, who were formerly part of LSI Logic Corporation. The team is well known for its low power MIPS architecture, core, and system on chip (SOC) design expertise, as well as its full set of customer deliverables. As part of LSI Logic, it has been responsible for a number of highly successful designs, including TinyRISC and many low power products, and also was a key contributor in LSI to the development of EJTAG 2.0 Debug Standard.

LSI Logic Corporation and MIPS Technologies, Inc. are working closely to ensure a smooth transition of the team. The MDDC will work on developments for MIPS as well as providing a high level of support and design expertise for European-based MIPS customers.

“We are tremendously excited about the addition of this renowned team to our company,” said Lavi Lev, senior vice president of Engineering for MIPS Technologies, Inc. “We are fortunate to have secured the complete team, which has many years of experience working effectively and efficiently together. Its members are highly respected for their experience in designing and developing consumer related and low-power MIPS architecture solutions. Their work in core development for Windows CE and low-power applications dovetails extremely well with our product plans, as these skills enhance our existing abilities to design extremely powerful processors. Uniting the two teams will enable MIPS to provide the most powerful processor for almost any application’s needs in terms of power consumption. Furthermore, with their strong systems knowledge we will design and develop cores that are ideally suited to the types of applications we plan to aggressively pursue in digital consumer, network systems, and information management applications.”

“Our licensees in Europe are delighted to learn of this tremendous resource that is now available to them,” said Bert Zandhuis, Director of European Business Development for MIPS Technologies, Inc. “This team will improve our European presence beyond measure as it enables us to support our strategic partners with some of the best MIPS design engineers available. The new product roadmap, which we have just announced, also ensures a continuous, smooth upgrade path into the future with more powerful processors to meet the needs of emerging applications. The growing need for performance, combined with low power design skills, positions us to become a major player.”

Jens Kjelsbak, Director and General Manager of the MDDC will report directly to Lev and will head the team in Denmark. “The skill set of the people within the MDDC is a perfect match to the MIPS engineering group in Mountain View,” said Jens Kjelsbak. “We see our relationship with MIPS as a great opportunity to get the benefits of the MIPS architecture out to a larger number of customers.” Plans call for the work of the team to focus on developing products for synthesizable and optimized cores, as well as all system products.
