Applied Micro Circuits (AppliedMicro) introduced the APM 821xx processor. Samples of the AppliedMicro APM821xx single-core system-on-a-chip (SoC) devices are available now. Production quantities are expected in the second quarter. Packaging is in a ROHS compliant, 18mm X 18mm, 345-ball FBGA. Limited sample quantities of the APM821xx family are available at less than $20 for quantities of 10,000 pieces.
DDC-I will make their Deos safety-critical real-time operating system and OpenArbor development tool suite available for applications using AMCC’s (now AppliedMicro) PowerPC 440 core. Deos and OpenArbor will also be available out of the box for Embedded Planet’s EP440C single-board computer, which provides a development and prototyping environment for applications targeting the PowerPC 440EP processor.
AppliedMicro introduced low-power versions of the Power Architecture 405EX, 405EXr, 460EX, 460EXr, and 460GT microprocessors. The new processors have been optimized for low-power consumption (consume up to 40% less power for a variety of embedded applications). The low-power versions of AppliedMicro’s Power Architecture 405EX, 405EXr, 460EX, 460EXr, and 460GT microprocessors are now available in production quantities.
Applied Micro Circuits Corporation introduced the APM 83290 System on Chip (SoC). According to AMCC, the APM 83290 is the highest performance Power Architecture solution available in bulk CMOS process. The APM 83290 features proprietary PacketPro and MultiEase technologies. The Soc is ideal for wireless infrastructure, enterprise, storage, entertainment, multifunction printer, and communications applications. AppliedMicro’s APM 83290 is available now in sample quantities with production quantities expected in Q1 2010.
