COMPUTEX TAIPEI, Taiwan – June 1, 2010 – MIPS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer, home networking, wireless, communications and business applications, today announced that ViXS Systems Inc. will demonstrate the Android™ platform running on its MIPS-Based™ XCode® 4200 family of Integrated Chipsets at COMPUTEX TAIPEI this week. The XCode® 4200 family is a fully-integrated dual HD transcoder SoC family designed specifically for Blu-ray, NAS (network-attached storage), IPTV/cable/satellite set-top boxes, home gateways and other consumer entertainment devices.

A global leader in innovative and advanced networked multimedia solutions, ViXS separately today introduced an Android software development kit (SDK) for the flagship IC XCode® 4210. ViXS joins a growing list of innovative companies leveraging Android on the MIPS® architecture to create the next generation of connected entertainment devices.

“Next generation connected entertainment platforms will require a full web experience and a rich graphical user interface with high-performance processing, full HD, 3D graphics and other advanced functionality,” said Art Swift, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies. “With the increasing number of formats and standards, real-time transcoding technology is clearly a must for Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, home gateways, and other advanced digital home products, and this is the first time we are seeing it available for Android. With the high-performance, feature-rich XCode® 4210, ViXS is really taking advantage of the power of the MIPS architecture.”

“The functionality and processing power of the XCode® 4210 in combination with the MIPS architecture provides a feature rich platform for Android. This platform allows our customers to access the suite of applications available with Android and to provide a truly connected experience to the consumer,” said Sally Daub, president and CEO, ViXS Systems.

Specifically designed for 3D TV applications, the XCode® 4210 includes full 3D TV display formatting capability, 2D/3D graphics rendering, and the latest H.264 Multi-view Codec (MVC) 3D TV decoding standard. The XCode® 4210 delivers user performance in excess of 3,200 DMIPS distributed over a main MIPS MIPS32® 74Kf™ applications processor and two offload processors, all simultaneously running their own real time operating systems.

The XCode® 4210 simultaneously encodes, decodes and transcodes HD video up to 1080p60/50. It has the ability to transcrypt and transcode many forms of multimedia content to many multimedia and container formats. This enables seamless streaming, downloading and sideloading to a wide range of connected consumer entertainment devices, such as set-top boxes, PC/laptops, DTVs, game consoles, Blu-ray players, DLNA clients, wireless tablets and smart phones. With ViXS’ real-time transcryption, protected content remains secure between devices, and its real-time transcoding provides streaming efficiency to save bandwidth and increase storage capacity.
