Applied Micro Circuits, or AppliedMicro™, an industry leading provider of energy conscious silicon solutions for next generation data centers and internet infrastructure, announced the opening of its second design center in India, located in Bangalore.

AppliedMicro's newest design center will facilitate new product development and enable the company to meet the explosive demand for "Just-Right" compute and connectivity products for enterprise and cloud data centers. These new products will dramatically reduce energy and the total cost of ownership of data center infrastructure by striking the optimal blend of performance, density, and power consumption. AppliedMicro is the only company to offer a complete suite of compute and connectivity silicon specifically designed for next-generation data centers. The opening of the new development center will drive advanced design and development of AppliedMicro's computing and connectivity solutions and add significant value to its technology capabilities.

The Bangalore design center will reflect AppliedMicro's strong heritage in innovation and a clear commitment to energy efficiency. It will complement the company's strategy in the development of its flagship product, "X-Gene," the world's first 64-bit ARM® architecture compliant processor for next-generation cloud computing, wireless infrastructure, enterprise networking, storage, and security applications. The center will also contribute significantly to the development of AppliedMicro's next generation Optical Transport Network (OTN) and physical layer (PHY) products.

"With the launch of the X-Gene™ platform at the end of 2011, AppliedMicro demonstrated its innovative capabilities in the cloud computing space. We are building on this by assembling teams that can satisfy our complex and demanding engineering objectives and fuel our growth. Bangalore's world-class, highly proficient and mature talent pool complements this strategy very well, and together with our Pune center, will contribute to India being our fastest growing design location," said Dr. Paramesh Gopi, President and CEO of AppliedMicro.

"By having our new design operations in Bangalore, we will engage the industry's best talent and work closely with our partners and customers to shape next-generation solutions in data center computing and connectivity. The learning and ownership opportunities our company will offer to senior engineering talent here will be significant and unique, allowing them to be pioneers of energy conscious cloud computing silicon and software," added Anil Gupta, Managing Director, AppliedMicro India.
