The MIPS 4K series is MIPS Technologies's low end MIPS32 synthesizable.

MIPS32 4Kc Family

  • 4Kp core - basic version with iterative multiply and FMT MMU
  • 4Km core - 4Kp core plus fast Multiply/Divide Unit
  • 4Kc core - 4Km core plus TLB MMU

The 4Kc CPU supports:

  • MIPS32 compatible instruction set and priveleged resource architecture
    • Instruction and Data watch CP0 registers for software breakpoints
    • Separate interrupt exeption vector
  • Memory Management Unit
    • 16 dual-entry MIPS32 style TLB with variable page sizes

4KE

MIPS32 4KEc Family

Linux support

The 4K and 4KE are fully supported.
