SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013 (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 today that its Aptiv™ generation of microprocessor cores has received the award for "Best Processor IP of 2012" from The Linley Group in the analyst firm's annual Analysts' Choice Awards.

The Analysts' Choice Awards recognize the top products in several processor and technology categories including embedded, mobile, PC, server, IP cores and related technology. Linley Group analysts are deeply familiar with all of the leading processor products, having written about them for Microprocessor Report over the course of the past year. Winners were selected based on performance, power, features and cost, as appropriate for their target applications.

The Aptiv generation of 32-bit 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.

"MIPS earned this award for accomplishing a top-to-bottom upgrade of its CPU IP portfolio to address rapidly changing markets spanning virtually every processor category. We are particularly impressed with the proAptiv core—the crown jewel of the Aptiv generation—for achieving certified CoreMark scores that exceed the expected scores of the competition's top-line 64-bit licensable IP. We evaluated numerous candidates across the spectrum of processor IP, and our analysts agreed that 2012 was the year for MIPS," said J Scott Gardner, senior analyst, The Linley Group / Microprocessor Report.

"We are honored to receive the recognition of 'Best Processor IP of 2012,' particularly when being evaluated alongside other impressive technologies, and by a firm as reputable as The Linley Group," said Gideon Intrater, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. "The Aptiv generation signifies a new era of innovation for the MIPS architecture, providing high-performance, power-efficient and cost-effective options for a broad range of next generation applications. With Aptiv cores, we are enabling our customers to differentiate and excel in an increasingly competitive market."
