Advanced Micro Devices Inc. said its Alchemy Solutions line of system-on-a-chip (SOC) processors and development board kits is being made available through its long-standing distributors Arrow Electronics, Inc., Avnet, Inc., and Future Electronics.
The AMD Alchemy Solutions products are created within AMD's Personal Connectivity Solutions Group (PCS).
The move "means that our customers will have the outstanding technical support and design resources that our distributors offer to support our products. This can shorten the customer's time to market and reduce development costs," AMD said.
It also means the distributors can offer customers the AMD products for the non-PC Internet appliance and access infrastructure market, AMD added.
The three distributors will carry the AMD Alchemy Solutions Au1000, Au1100 and Au1500 processors, which are planned to be widely available for distribution early in the first quarter of next year. Field Application Engineers from these three distributors have undergone training to prepare them for supporting the PCS products.
