Company at AppliedMicro
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, recently AppliedMicro, is an innovator in semiconductor technology and a global leader in energy efficient sustainable solutions to process, transport, and store information for next generation Internet data center and telecommunication carrier central office equipment. As a leader in high-speed digital signal, Internet Protocol, Ethernet packet and storage processing, AppliedMicro’s patented innovations provide highly integrated Systems-On-a-Chip (SoCs) for telecommunications, enterprise and consumer applications.
As optical and wireless network data traffic grows rapidly, AppliedMicro supplies 10/40/100-Gigabit semiconductors to enable virtualization and cloud computing applications.
In transport networks linking cities and countries around the globe, AppliedMicro leads the industry by leveraging innovative IP in mixed-signal, low-power silicon to enable telecommunications carriers to converge voice-based networks into a high speed Internet technology. The transition enables the seamless delivery of video, voice and data services as traffic volumes continue to explode. AppliedMicro’s 10 Gigabit per second framer-mapper-physical layer devices are designed into multi-service switches, routers and dense wavelength division multiplex equipment in long-haul, core and metropolitan networks. The company’s embedded processors are designed into cellular base stations that enable mobile device communications. Systems equipped with AppliedMicro’s solutions enable Telco’s to deploy higher data rate broadband connections, high reliability, low error rates, low latency and high quality of service.
Data Center and Enterprise
High speed, low power connectivity and computing solutions provide the ideal balance for systems and products that conserve energy and lower costs while maintaining high performance.
As the use of video becomes more prevalent and as processing power increases, data centers require high-speed connections to transfer information between systems more efficiently to enable virtualization and cloud computing applications. AppliedMicro is the industry’s leading supplier of 10-Gigabit Ethernet optical connections into blade servers and system interconnects that allow data center OEMS to upgrade their 1-Gigabit per second links. The company’s embedded processing solutions deliver a balance of control plane and packet processing for I/0 control, storage networking and security and its low power embedded processor manages the high-speed data rates for the industry’s number one enterprise wireless access point.
Consumer and Small-to-Medium Business
Silicon solutions expertly designed for emerging application areas speed customer time to market with addition of fully-optimized reference designs.
As more devices in the home and small office connect to the Internet, requirements for networking capabilities, video delivery and packet processing grow. AppliedMicro provides high performance Power Architecture processing to enable emerging classes of devices in the home and small office to take on video, virtualization, storage and other tasks where processors built only for data processing fall short. With a strong heritage and network connectivity and embedded processing and an acute focus on breaking into emerging growth markets, AppliedMicro is uniquely qualified to provide high performance, power efficient solutions that provide high speed connectivity for emerging applications in the telecommunications, data center and consumer/ SMB markets.
SoC architecture that AppliedMicro provides with its single-core and multi-core processors offloads routine tasks so that consumers get the seamless delivery of video voice and data to their networked devices. The company’s embedded processors are found in market leading networked attached storage devices, home media servers, wireless access points, network access gateways and multi-function printers.
Electronic devices for consumer mobile applications are extremely energy efficient because they are designed to maximize battery life. AppliedMicro is leading innovative efforts to apply mobile design and device technology to the silicon solutions for its data center and telco customers in order to drive down the overall power consumption of equipment. Data centers today consume about 2.5 percent of domestic energy production annually according to a 2007 study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the demand is increasing rapidly as the technology becomes more pervasive in everyday life. Both data centers and telco central offices are heading into an energy crisis and AppliedMicro will supply energy efficient System-on-Chip devices that allow the systems to attain higher performance levels while reducing their overall carbon footprint.
AppliedMicro builds extensive relationships with its customers and suppliers in order to supply the solutions that accelerate time-to-market and capture market share with leading-edge capabilities. The company uses its design expertise to assess the needs of end markets in order to develop devices that will provide its partners with a competitive edge. It also engages with customers at every level of the system design phase so that the integration becomes a seamless process, allowing OEMs to get to market with advanced features that enable market share growth. AppliedMicro partners benefit from advanced semiconductor designs, comprehensive evaluation boards and full-featured reference designs with software and an ecosystem of third-party vendors that all help AppliedMicro’s customers to complete development tasks successfully.
With a strong heritage in innovation, and a clear commitment to energy efficiency, AppliedMicro is bringing breakthrough technology advances to telecommunications, data centers, the enterprise and consumers.
