MIPS Technologies, Inc. announced that support for the MIPS® architecture is included in new SkypeKit™ developer tools available now from Skype.

Through the SkypeKit closed beta program, MIPS Technologies has developed a Skype reference implementation for the MIPS® architecture.

Skype is software used by individuals and businesses to make video and voice calls, send instant messages and share files with other Skype users.

Developers now have the ability to build Skype functionality into MIPS-Based™ devices such as DTVs, set-top boxes and digital media adaptors.

According to Art Swift, vice president of marketing, MIPS Technologies, “We are pleased to offer our licensees yet another key piece of the picture for next-generation connected devices.

“By participating in the SkypeKit beta program, our licensees and their customers can now develop Skype solutions to enable Skype users around the globe to communicate through a range of MIPS-Based products.

“The MIPS architecture offers compelling performance and power consumption advantages. These advantages, together with the work we are doing with platforms such as Skype, Android™, Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1, Yahoo! TV Widgets and others, are enabling our customers to quickly and easily create the next generation of innovative SoCs.”
