MIPS creates industry-standard processor architectures and embedded semiconductor cores that are the heart of many Electronic Gadgets and Equipment or Appliance.
The MIPS architecture was developed decades ago by Stanford University engineering Professor John Hennessy. It is an remarkable example of RISC processing.

The MIPS SEAD -3 System engineering and development board is designed to provide a low-cost means to support various CPU cores allowing the user to evaluate the cores in an FPGA environment.
SEAD-3 also provides a user the ability to utilize the on board Xilinx FPGA for their own custom programming when a MIPS® FM-3 module is added to house the CPU core. When the FM-3 is added the user can then additionally stack on a MIPS® FPGA 5b board that can house up to two additional Xilinx XC5VLX330s providing extra design capacity.
