PMON is a freeware ROM-monitor developed for early LSI Logic MIPS R3000 evaluation boards. Since its creation, PMON has become a very common firmware for MIPS evaluation boards and development systems.

For information on PMON, visit Phil Bunce's (PMON's designer) website at http://www.carmel.com/pmon .

The original PMON code base is rather old now, supports relatively few boards and is not being actively worked on by a single project team. PMON 2000 has become the inofficial successor of PMON.

PMON comes with excellent documentation in HTML.

The latest PMON source, modifyed by Algorithmics is available as pmonsrc-20011116.tar.gz. It contains support for much more boards, R4000-style exeptions, and comes with more recent build system (for GNU make).

There is a PMON-VR fork for the NEC_VR4100 as part of the Agenda VR3 HPC project.

Linksys WRT54G and Asus WL-300g, a WiFi 802.11g AccessPoints (both BCM47XX based) uses PMON version 5.3.22 as a Linux bootloader. PMON port to the BCM47XX is available from the GPL'ed sourcecode for this devices.
