MIPS R2000

MIPS R2000

(processor)
The R2000 design came, in about 1987, from the Stanford MIPS project, which stood for Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages.

Like the AMD 29000, the R2000 has no condition code register considering it a potential bottleneck. The program counter can be read like other registers.

The CPU includes an MMU that can also control a cache, and the CPU can operate as big-endian or little-endian. There is a FPU, the R2010.

Versions include the MIPS R3000 and MIPS R4000.

Our goal was to translate most user mode MIPS programs compiled for a MIPS R2000 or R3000 machine running ULTRIX Release 4.
The progress that has been made during the last three or four years is well illustrated by comparing the MIPS R2000 processor developed in 1986 with two-micron technology, with the Intel i860 developed in 1989.
Early in his career he was a computer architect and designer on a number of modern computer families including the Motorola MC68000, the MIPS R2000, and the Stellar GS1000.
