Strangely Broadcom is not part of the long list, but I think that it's only question of time.


Not strange at all considering that Broadcom owns MIPS IP and for their use cases it's "Good enoug".

Ah. I was thinking the MIPS was still owned by Infineon.

Then it explains all.

However even MIPS was "opened", but I doubt that it'll gain any market.

I don't believe Infinion ever owned MIPS, maybe they had a licence for building them but there are others that have licences too:

Microchip Technology / PIC
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PIC_microcontrollers#PIC32M_MIPS-based_line

MIPS is like ARM but not as famous as they are, they are licensing technology, but I have my doubt they can keep up with ARM.

Close, Imagination Technologies of PowerVR fame owned it until 2017.

@OneTimer1 & Rose: sorry, I confused it with Infineon. You're right.
