MIPS Technologies Inc. and Mavrix Technology Inc. are working together with other companies in MIPS' mobile ecosystem to develop a MIPS-based applications processor that leverages the Android platform for mobile devices.

Leveraging a MIPS32 CPU core from MIPS, Mavrix will target mobile applications including cell phones, portable media players and mobile Internet devices. Mavrix already has design wins with major Chinese cell phone OEMs using its MIPS-Based SoCs as co-processors for audio/video decoding. This new relationship builds on the companies' existing relationship and involvement in these cell phone products.

"We have had marked success with MIPS cores, and are pleased to announce that our next-generation MIPS-based SoCs will run Android for mobile devices including handsets," said Zhenyu Zhou, CEO, Mavrix. "Our customers will benefit from the high performance and low power consumption of MIPS Technologies' cores, and the speed and ease of development that the Android platform can provide. Android on MIPS, combined with our unique technology for multimedia processing, offers a valuable solution to OEMs and ODMs."

"Android on the MIPS architecture provides a powerful platform for companies to develop unique and differentiated connected devices," said Art Swift, VP of marketing, MIPS. "Mavrix Technology is an innovative company that is on the leading edge of development, leveraging Android on MIPS for a new generation of high-performance, low-power SoCs for cell phones. We are pleased to team with Mavrix and other companies in the evolving MIPS Technologies mobile ecosystem to enable these next-generation products."
