Firmware is the system software residing in a non-volatile memory, typically a ROM, EPROM or today often a flash memory. What is called firmware for the MIPS systems is relatively close to what is called the BIOS for the PC sector.

There is a small number of firmware implementations in use on MIPS only however in a large number of variants.
