Stocks in this article: MIPS

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 13, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for home entertainment, networking, mobile and embedded applications, announced that EDN has named MIPS' Aptiv™ generation of microprocessor cores to its list of the "100 Hot Products of 2012." The 2012 EDN Hot 100 list highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity—as selected by EDN editors.

MIPS' Aptiv generation of microprocessor cores, including the ultra high-performance proAptiv™ family, multi-threaded interAptiv™ family, and highly-efficient microAptiv™ family, offer three distinct performance levels to enable innovative development across a broad range of home entertainment, networking, mobile and embedded applications.

"We are pleased to have our Aptiv microprocessors recognized yet again for their benefits and innovation," said Gideon Intrater, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. "Our Aptiv cores are pushing performance efficiency to new levels, and clearly the industry is taking notice. With our Aptiv cores, supported by a broad ecosystem of tools and software, our customers can differentiate in today's increasingly competitive market."

"It's always a fun and enlightening challenge for the EDN editors to select the year's Hot 100 products, which has been an annual tradition at EDN since 1993. This year's selection not only reflects some technology trends that have been in place for a while, but also highlights some new trends that are just emerging, as well as a unique product or two that is in a class of its own," said Rich Pell, executive and chief technical editor, EDN.

The complete list of EDN's Hot 100 products can be found online at http://www.edn.com/electronics-products/other/4401457/EDN-Hot-100-products-of-2012 and within the December 14, 2012 issue of EDN Magazine.
