Porting operating system Firefox OS for the MIPS32 architecture


The paper gives a summary view of techniques used to port the operating system Firefox OS to 32-bit MIPS platform. MIPS is a highly energy-efficient processor, with average performance and a low price range, and as such is suitable for use on mobile devices. Overview of platform’s capabilities and reasons for porting of the operating system are given, followed by technical requirements for porting Firefox OS to the new architecture. Paper ends with results of comparative tests, performed on ARM and MIPS platforms. Porting
