The MIPS Atlas is an evaluation board made by MIPS Technologies, Inc. It has been superseeded by the MIPS Malta. The Atlas is based on a Philips SAA9730 SOC which is so totally bugridden that nobody ever got NFS to work reliably on it.

Firmware

Atlas uses YAMON for it's firmware.

Linux support

The Atlas is supported in Linux 2.4 and 2.6 but the code is suffering from bitrot; the user base also seems to have vanished.
