Family of reduced instruction set computer (RISC) instruction set architectures (ISA) developed by MIPS Computer Systems, now MIPS Technologies, based in the United States.
By the late 2010s, MIPS machines were still commonly used in embedded markets, including automotive, wireless router, LTE modems (mainly via MediaTek), and microcontrollers (for example the Microchip Technology PIC32M).
Synchronous serial communication interface specification used for short-distance communication, primarily in embedded systems.
For "Microchip PIC" / "ARM-based" microcontrollers (note that NCPHA is the inversion of CPHA):
Computer architecture with separate storage and signal pathways for instructions and data.
Microcontrollers are characterized by having small amounts of program (flash memory) and data (SRAM) memory, and take advantage of the Harvard architecture to speed processing by concurrent instruction and data access. The separate storage means the program and data memories may feature different bit widths, for example using 16-bit-wide instructions and 8-bit-wide data. They also mean that instruction prefetch can be performed in parallel with other activities. Examples include the PIC by Microchip Technology, Inc. and the AVR by Atmel Corp (now part of Microchip Technology).
Technique used in computer design to increase the amount of usable memory beyond the amount directly addressable by the processor instructions.
An example is the PIC microcontroller.
