Back to the future: 64-bit MIPS CPU explores the origins of the solar system

    

A few months back I reported on the MIPS-based Mongoose-V chip guiding the New Horizons probe in its quest to reach Pluto. The story captured the headlines of many publications and generated many questions about the MIPS architecture (more on this in a separate article). Today I’d like to focus on another important space mission […]
