  MIPS architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By the late 1990s MIPS was a powerhouse in the embedded processor field, and in 1997 the 48-millionth MIPS-based CPU shipped, making it the first RISC CPU to outship the famous Motorola 68000 family.
Success followed success, and today the MIPS cores are one of the most-used "heavyweight" cores in the marketplace for computer-like devices (hand-held computers, set-top boxes, etc.), with other designers fighting it out for other niches.
A more feature-rich MIPS emulator is available from the GXemul project (formerly known as the mips64emul project), which emulates not only the various MIPS III and higher microprocessors (from the R4000 through the R10000), but also emulates entire computer systems which use the microprocessors.

 Instruction Set Architecture - LinuxMIPS
When MIPS was spun out of SGI again in 1998 and refocused on the embedded market this superset property was found to be a problem and the architecture definition was changed to define a 32-bit MIPS32 and a 64-bit MIPS64 architecture.
MIPS III was introduced 1992 in the R4000.
MIPS V was specified in 1994 by SGI but never actually implemented by any processor.

 MIPS Architecture Opus @ LaunchBase.org (Launch Base)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
One major barrier to pipelining was that it required interlocks to be set up to ensure that instructions that took multiple clock cycles to complete would stop the pipeline from loading more data — basically to pause while it completed.
This ramping of the speed would be difficult with interlocking involved, as the time needed to set up locks is as much a function of die size as clock rate: adding the hardware needed might actually slow down the overall speed.
The high operating frequencies were achieved through the technique of deep pipelining (called super-pipelining at the time).

 MIPS - Internetnews.com - Webopedia.com
A old measure of a computer's speed and power, MIPS measures roughly the number of machine instructions that a computer can execute in one second.
In addition, MIPS refers only to the CPU speed, whereas real applications are generally limited by other factors, such as I/O speed.
A machine with a high MIPS rating, therefore, might not run a particular application any faster than a machine with a low MIPS rating.

 EETimes.com - Iconoclast designers choose MIPS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
One reason young processor companies seem to be flocking to the platform is that its steward, MIPS Technologies Inc., has no qualms about licensing the instruction-set architecture (ISA), provided that the licensee agrees to meet a software-compatibility test suite.
The MIPS ISA is also one of the simplest forms of reduced-instruction-set computing around, which tends to make it attractive to processor designers interested in extending the architecture.
In the mid-1990s, before MIPS was spun out from Silicon Graphics Inc., the instruction set lacked a multiply-add instruction, so some MIPS vendors took it upon themselves to create their own.
