Applied Micro Circuits Corp. and Beijing UD Technology Company Ltd. (UDTech) have announced a strategic partnership to accelerate customers' development schedules and reduce time-to-market for products based on AMCC's PowerPC embedded processors and networking solutions.
Under this partnership, UDTech (Beijing, China) will develop low cost evaluation kits for various AMCC processors, which AMCC (San Diego) will distribute to customers worldwide. UDTech will also develop reference designs for specific end-market applications served by AMCC's processor solutions.
The turnkey reference designs will include comprehensive hardware platforms, with packages available so that customers can replicate the current designs or use them as the starting-point for their own products. Customers will also have the option to license the complete software solutions available for the target applications from UDTech.
AMCC and UDTech expect to introduce the first evaluation kit in spring 2006
