MIPS has announced that it has expanded its collaboration with Synopsys to accelerate ecosystem enablement of MIPS RISC-V IP and their customer’s ability to innovate compute without constraints.

MIPS will showcase its RISC-V IP Core technology utilizing the Synopsys® ImperasFPM Fast Processor Models and the Synopsys ImperasPDK Processor Development Kit software simulation tools at embedded world 2024.

The MIPS RISC-V P8700 IP, featured in the demo at embedded world, is a versatile processor that is available in scalable multicore configurations, is capable of running Linux and other high-level operating systems (HLOS) and is suitable for a variety of automotive (and non-automotive) applications. As a key benefit, customers using the Synopsys ImperasFPM and ImperasPDK fast simulation solution can get started early with software development for the MIPS P8700 and I8500.

“Our collaboration with Synopsys marks an important milestone for the company as we showcase our multithreading capabilities, enabling our customers to use the industry leading ImperasFPM RISC-V models and fast simulation tools to develop innovative and differentiated products,” said Drew Barbier, Vice President of Products, MIPS.

At embedded world 2024, MIPS will feature a “Synopsys Simulation Model Demonstration” showcasing its multithreaded P8700 Series CPU running on Synopsys’ fast simulation tools. This demo will showcase real-time system deployments, as well as the ability to deliver leading RISC-V tools that accelerate compute innovation.

“High quality processor models are needed in the RISC-V ecosystem to enable early software development,” said Simon Davidmann, Vice President, Engineering in the Systems Design Group, Synopsys. “Our collaboration with MIPS enables customers to accelerate their RISC-V software development and functional verification of advanced SoCs using Synopsys’ leading high-performance ImperasFPM models.”

P8700 and I8500 development kits are currently available to purchase from MIPS.
