MIPS® SIMD Architecture

December 19, 2012 // By MIPS Technologies
In consumer electronics devices, adding a software-programmable SIMD solution in the CPU can add flexibility for emerging codecs and functions not covered by dedicated hardware. The MIPS SIMD Architecture (MSA) module adds new instructions to the MIPS architecture that enable efficient parallel processing of vector operations. The MSA is designed specifically to accelerate compute-intensive applications with generic compiler support.
