MIPS Computer Systems Inc, the Sunnyvale, California company with the R-series of high-performance Reduced Instruction Set Unix boards, has won over Racal Electronics’ Racal-Redac CAD/CAM systems company, signing an OEM agreement with the Massachusetts- based US subsidiary. Under the agreement, Racal-Redac will market systems based on the MIPS boards as part of its Visula System to electronic design automation customers around the world. The agreement is valued at $4m over the first year. MIPS rates the R2000 series of at between 5 MIPS and 10 MIPS in sustained performance, which it reckons gives the custom 32-bit CMOS microprocessor three to five times the performance of the current industry-standard 32-bit microprocessor families.
