AppliedMicro Announces the X-Weave Family of Connectivity Products for Data Centers and Service Provider Infrastructure

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 24, 2013) - Applied Micro Circuits Corporation ( NASDAQ : AMCC ), also known as AppliedMicro, today announces a new family of X-Weave™ products, specifically designed to meet the unique needs of public cloud, private cloud, and enterprise data centers. The X-Weave product family, with its unique multi protocol feature set and high density, low power footprint, will address the high growth, billion-dollar-plus data center connectivity market.

The X-Weave family of products will span 100Gbps to 240Gbps of connectivity with integrated analog I/O for a variety of optical and copper connectivity interfaces. X-Weave spans rack and cluster connectivity within the data center and seamlessly extends to connect multiple data centers together over DWDM optical links. The first product in the family is X12: AppliedMicro's 28 nanometer, 120G, 12-port Ethernet/OTN "smart PHY" with framer, mapper, and multi protocol DSP-based forward-error correction.

"X-Weave was co-created with top tier service provider and data center customers and uniquely leverages our established position in the service provider market to address the rapidly growing data center market. The convergence of X-Gene™ and X-Weave will offer a full portfolio of components for the new cloud infrastructure and will position us well to execute on our growth strategy," said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, AppliedMicro's President and CEO.

AppliedMicro's X-Weave family will play a critical role in enabling more malleable data centers. Malleability will be required to meet the needs of today's hyper-scale, open source computing environment, where rapid, commercially-viable and large scale cloud deployments will be paramount in supporting up to 50 billion connected devices in use by the end of the decade.
