MIPS optimizing compilers

Green Hills Software has been providing Optimizing C, C++, and Embedded C++ compilers to the embedded industry since 1982. Green Hills optimizing compilers offer hundreds of unique optimizations, each developed as a result of studying how to extract the highest performance from thousands of embedded programs.

The MIPS compiler uses a common code generator with architecture-specific optimizations. Modules for each specific MIPS model exploit pipeline and instruction set characteristics to generate highly optimized binary code.

  • Processor Options— Specific to each MIPS architecture and processor supported for optimal performance. This setting determines the instructions permitted as well as the pipeline optimization strategy used.
  • Position Independent Code (PIC) and Data (PID)— Allows code and data to be placed anywhere in memory and still run correctly.
  • microMIPS—Generate code for both MIPS32 and microMIPS modes of execution
  • MIPS Architecture Modules — Generate code for the DSP, Virtualization, and multi-threading (MT) modules from both C/C++ and assembly.
  • MIPS16e Instruction Set— Generate code for the MIPS16e ASE
  • Linker Optimizations — The Green Hills Linker optionally performs additional optimizations for speed and size.
