SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC), a leading vendor of embedded processors and network processors used in wireless access points and wireless access switches, today announced that it has joined the Wi-Fi Alliance, a global non-profit organization devoted to promoting the growth of wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). As a member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, AMCC can directly participate in activities shaping the future of the wireless market as well as global industry events either sponsored or organized by the Wi-Fi Alliance.

"Wireless-enabled products will continue to proliferate in the market, advancing our ability to stay connected in almost any environment. AMCC is committed to helping make this possible by providing reliable and timely products to customers developing Wi-Fi technologies. As a new member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, we look forward to further expanding our presence within the wireless community," said Sam Fuller, vice president of marketing at AMCC.

"For several years now, over half of all enterprise-class access points shipped have relied on PowerPC processors from AMCC. As the industry moves toward the faster and more complex 802.11n standard, the need for versatile, high performance processors like AMCC's 440EP and 440EPx is only expected to grow," continued Fuller.

"We are pleased to have AMCC, one of the wireless communications industry leaders, join the Wi-Fi Alliance," said Frank Hanzlik, Wi-Fi alliance managing director. "As a strong supporter of interoperability and the 802.11 technology, we are confident that AMCC will help our organization in achieving our goal of enhancing the user experience through product interoperability."
