AMCC Shows at CeBIT

HANNOVER, Germany -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC) is demonstrating real world hardware RAID technology applications at CeBIT for environments ranging from the desktop to the enterprise. The product demonstrations highlight the performance, value, and storage density offered by the 3ware 9650SE, the latest hardware-based 3ware Serial ATA RAID controller featuring RAID 6. The technology demonstrations will be shown in the AMCC booth at CeBIT in Hannover, March 15-21, in the Networked Storage Solutions Pavilion, Hall 1, Stand G61, and (A01).
