Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC) today announced the world’s first web server implementation running on a 64-bit ARM v8-compliant processor. This demonstration of an open-source web server application represents another critical milestone for X-Gene™, AppliedMicro’s “Server-on-a-Chip” solution designed to power next-generation cloud-computing data centers and reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). It also represents the first 64-bit ARM development vehicle for the ecosystem community that will aid in the acceleration of server system development.
- Multi-core ARM v8 running SMP with L1, L2, and L3 Caches
- System memory to host Linux and other server applications
- Coherent fabric, SOC peripherals and associated bridges
“This is the first time the world is seeing a mature, fully-functional server platform running a real-world application on 64-bit ARM-based processor,” said Vinay Ravuri, Vice President and General Manager of Processor Products at AppliedMicro. “As a result, AppliedMicro has already secured key strategic customers and partners around the world and has been enabling them with the tools they need to get started in advance of silicon.
