AMCC Intros Devices

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC), a global leader in optical transport, embedded Power Architecture(TM) processing and storage solutions, today announced the QT2225 and QT2235 dual-port XAUI-to-10Gb PHY devices. The QT2225 supports the 10GBASE-SR/LR/LRM SFP+ optical modules and 10GBASE-KR 10G serial backplane connectivity applications. The QT2235 supports system cards using XFP optical modules.

"The 10Gbps market is expanding rapidly and system designers are seeking higher densities for their applications," stated Jag Bolaria, Senior Analyst for The Linley Group. "The QT2225 and QT2235 products allow customers to reduce the number of chips previously required in their designs by two. The blade server market is a key driver for high density 10Gbps backplane applications while the switch / router market is a key driver for greater 10Gbps port density on line cards. Those industries should be very interested in these two highly integrated products. This announcement demonstrates AMCC's continuing commitment to this market and provides the company with one of the largest 10GbE PHY portfolio offerings in the industry."

The QT2225/QT2235 devices are highly integrated ICs for 10GbE, Fibre Channel, LAN, WAN and SAN applications based on XFP and SFP+ optical transceiver modules. The QT2235 supports XFP modules and the QT2225 is ideal for high port density 10G datacom Ethernet switches, NICs, and telecom line card applications with SFP+ optical module requirements. Extensive successful testing has been performed with multiple optical module vendors to deliver maximum standard performances and also to build a large ecosystem to help customers reduce their design cycle times.
