Linux on ARMDemonstration runs 64-bit Linux on newest ISA-based processor architecture to provide pre-silicon evaluation benchmarks for early customer engagements - SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation, or AppliedMicro, today demonstrated core functionality of the world's first 64-bit ARM processor on an FPGA platform during ARM TechCon 2011.

This milestone comes on the same day as ARM Holdings' announcement of its 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set architecture, and parallels AppliedMicro's launch of the industry's first 64-bit ARM "Server-on-a-Chip" solution in a single footprint, designed to deliver disruptively low power and cost points.

"The demonstration marks a fundamental achievement by AppliedMicro's engineering team to provide a proof of a single PMD core running both UBoot and 64-bit Linux," said Vinay Ravuri, Vice President of AppliedMicro's Embedded and Processing Business Unit. "It also provides pre-silicon customer evaluation of our 64-bit ARM solution and paves the way for a more sustainable future of cloud computing as we leverage this architecture to provide high-performance devices that consume less power and lower costs compared to today's server chips."
