Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC) was founded in 1979 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. It has 557 full-time employees. It is a semiconductor integrated circuit company that produces ICs for optical fibers and transmits sound and data.
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC):
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (also known as Applied Micro or AMCC or APM) is a fabless semiconductor company that designs network and embedded power architecture (including power architecture license) and server processor ARM (including ARMv8-A license), optical transmission and storage products. Company products include :
- Provides X-Gene server processor series based on ARMv8 64-bit instruction set architecture (ISA)-which is targeted at mainstream cloud and data center infrastructure, including hyperscale, telecommunications, enterprise and high-performance computing.
- It also provides embedded computing products, including HeliX series processors based on ARM 64-bit ISA and PowerPC products based on power architecture for wireless access points, home gateways, network connected storage, network switches and routers, and functional printers.
- In addition, the company provides connectivity products, including network physical layer equipment (PHY), including mixed signal and optical transmission network framer and mapper solutions.
- X-Weave series products to meet the needs of service providers and public clouds, private clouds and enterprise data centers.
- Framer-PHY silicon solution for high-speed optical network equipment such as routers, switches and transponders.
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Applied Micro Circuits Corporation) sells its products through direct sales and through a network of independent manufacturer representatives and distributors.
American Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) history:
- In 2004, AMCC purchased assets, intellectual property and engineers related to the PowerPC 400 microprocessor from IBM for US$227 million, and they now sell processors under their own name. The transaction also includes access to IBM’s SoC design method and advanced CMOS process technology.
- In 2009, AppliedMicro changed its brand from AMCC to AppliedMicro, but still retained the company name-Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (Applied Micro Circuits Corporation);
- In 2011, AppliedMicro became the first company to use the X-Gene platform to implement the ARMv8-A architecture. In November 2012, at ARM TechCon, AppliedMicro demonstrated advanced web search capabilities and the ability to use FPGA-simulated X-Gene platform to process big data workloads in the Apache Hadoop software environment.
- In April 2016, information showed that the company is about to launch the X-Gene 3 server chip. The release schedule is in the second half of 2017. The company expects its performance to exceed X-Gene 2, enabling it to better match those using the x86-64 architecture. Server competition.
- In November 2016, Macom announced that it would acquire AMCC.
