Altera and AppliedMicro will Cooperate on Joint Solutions for High Growth Data Center Market

Collaboration Aims to Couple Altera Stratix(R) FPGAs With AppliedMicro X-Gene(TM) Server on a Chip(TM) Offerings

SAN JOSE, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA, April 15, 2013 -- (Marketwired) Altera® Corporation(NASDAQ: ALTR) and Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ: AMCC), also known as AppliedMicro, today announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding designed to result in the joint development and marketing of optimized solutions for data center applications. The strategic cooperation initiative will enable the two companies to combine advanced Altera FPGAs with silicon solutions from AppliedMicro, including the company's full line of connectivity and ARM® 64-bit X-Gene Server on a Chip products.

"This agreement underscores our continued focus on enabling integrated, purpose-built solutions for our data center OTN customers," said George Jones, vice president, co-GM, Connectivity Products of AppliedMicro. "Combining Altera's advanced FPGA technology with our X-Gene Server on a Chip, Gearbox, PQX and QPSK products will provide our customers with highly optimized, cost-effective designs for next-generation data center infrastructure."

The collaboration will include shared efforts on system solution definition, co-development of reference designs and supporting software development. The resulting designs will combine the robust silicon and software from AppliedMicro with the performance and flexibility advantages of Altera's FPGAs.

"We believe the combination of the AppliedMicro processing and connectivity solutions with our FPGA technology will result in some of the industry's most innovative, flexible and high-performance solutions for data-center and OTN applications," said Scott Bibaud, senior vice president and general manager, Communication and Broadcast Division atAltera. "This cooperation will deliver optimized solutions in a highly attractive cost structure for our mutual customers."

The strategic cooperation initiative provides for the closely-coupled definition and development of solutions for high throughput data center server, storage and connectivity. Specifically, the companies intend to develop solutions that combine the AppliedMicro ARM 64-bit X-Gene processor offerings and advanced FPGAs from Altera.

The combined technologies will facilitate rapid adoption across enterprise networking platforms, next generation data centers and storage. The cooperation will span from hardware to software, providing the basis for extremely fast-turn designs in these multiple application areas.
