Wave Computing has created an Advisory Board to moderate the governance, license, and working group models within its MIPS Open Community. Wave’s MIPS Open Advisory Board will be established as a Member Committee within the prpl Foundation, an open source, collaborative non-profit organization that establishes open standards to enable the security and interoperability of embedded devices. Membership in the committee is open to OEMs, partners, universities. and technology luminaries and will be based on active involvement with the prpl Foundation.
The advisory board will provide input to Wave Computing leadership on topics including community health, policies and procedures, core criteria for MIPS Open Certified products, selection of certification partners, and long-term governance structure of the MIPS Open initiative. The board will be managed as a separate committee under the umbrella of the prpl Foundation and will include resources contributed by Wave Computing.
The prpl Foundation will serve as an incubation organization for Wave Computing’s MIPS Open Advisory Board. Over time, the prpl Foundation and MIPS Open Advisory Committee will determine whether the MIPS Open™ Advisory Board should function independently as its own foundation.
Wave Computing’s initiative is expected to expand the existing MIPS ecosystem by offering more opportunities for third-party tool vendors, software developers, and universities to create products and platforms based on the MIPS architecture. Organizations joining the committee will support standards that ensure interoperability of next-gen MIPS-based System on Chip solutions. Parties interested in becoming part of the MIPS Open Advisory Board should visit the MIPS Open community and Wave Computing.
