US DRAM maker Micron has signed a licensing deal with MIPS for the MIPS32 4Kc and MIPS64 5Kc processing cores. The agreement has been seen as an attempt on Micron's behalf to reposition itself as doing more than just DRAM.

The company plans to combine the cores with its own DRAM technology to produce a new range of system-on-a-chip products. Micron's customers in graphics, set top boxes, peripherals, and communications applications will use the new systems, the company said.

Dean Klein, Micron's VP of integrated products, said the new products will be suited to those working to develop "applications requiring quick access to large amounts of memory". ®
