BURNABY, B.C. -- PMC-Sierra (NASDAQ: PMCS) today announced the immediate availability of the RM7000B' 64-bit MIPS-based processor with clock speeds up to 600 MHz. The RM7000B is PMC-Sierra's first device to use TSMC's leading 0.13 micron, copper-interconnect technology process. PMC-Sierra's high performance, low power RM7000B device is ideal for meeting cost and performance upgrade demands in routers, switches, DSLAMs, and multi-service access in networked printer platforms. "The RM7000 and RM5200 products have become world leaders in 64-bit RISC shipments. These products have captured a majority of the world's supply of routers on the control plane and in networked printers. Today we're currently shipping over one million units per quarter of these products," said Tom Riordan, vice president and general manager of PMC-Sierra's MIPS Processor Division. "Our commitment is to offer our customers higher performance MIPS-based processors with seamless pin- and software-compatible upgrade capabilities as early as next year."PMC-Sierra Inc.
