JAXA Hayabusa-2 space probe - MIPS MIPS64  (8)

MIPS in space: Inside JAXA’s Hayabusa-2 mission to asteroid rendezvous

    

A few days ago I brought you an exclusive interview with the New Horizons engineering team. The high-profile story presented the hardware and software systems that took the probe to Pluto and beyond. Today I’d like to revisit another important space mission called Hayabusa-2. Back in July, I wrote about the 64-bit MIPS CPU aboard […]

MIPS in space: Inside NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto

      

A few months ago I published a short overview of the greatest MIPS microchips from the 1980s and 1990s. One of the stars of that era is MIPS R3000, a CPU that has been used in many consumer and embedded devices. Initially known for powering the original PlayStation game console and a range of SGI […]
