While I was examining the ImgTec and MIPS Web sites now that they are separate 
entities again, I stumbled across this blog post from almost exactly three 
years ago:


The GitHub repositories are still fairly active, it would appear. For example:


I mention this because some of the documentation might also be present in the 
repository above, and there is also code that is MIT-licensed. I cannot say 
whether this adds any more pieces to the puzzle.


P.S. I was also amused by one of the comments responding to someone suggesting 
that ImgTec might embrace Free Software. How wonderful it was to have "90% of 
their valuation" from Apple, so why bother cooperating with any kind of 
community? Well, we all know how well that turned out, business genius!
