MIPS Technologies, Inc., a provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital consumer and network applications, this week announced it licensed the MIPS64(TM) 5Kc(TM) processor core to Adaptec, Inc. for implementation in Adaptec's next-generation I/O products.

"We're seeing an interesting trend towards high-performance integrated RAID solutions in ultradense server configurations. The 64-bit MIPS solution is exactly the fit for the performance space we're targeting," said Lee Caswell, vice president and general manager of Adaptec's Storage Solutions Group. "Our customers are on the edge of their seats as they realize the impact they'll see from a MIPS Technologies 64-bit synthesizable core married with Adaptec's I/O and PCI-X cores. Not only will it provide the performance we need, but we're also showing customers the advantage of the design flexibility and 32-bit code compatibility, which keep the cost down. Above all, it gives us more than enough headroom to meet our customers' needs well into the next generation."

According to MIPS, the 5Kc core is a high-performance, synthesizable core based on the MIPS64 architecture. Adaptec plans to initially use the core in products targeted at high-density server systems.
