Kambiz Hooshmand, AMCC's CEO explained the move: "This migration has been occurring gradually over the last year, with the addition of several Silicon Valley executives to the new management team. That, and the fact that a number of our key, tier one customers are in the area -- within minutes of our Sunnyvale office -- prompted the decision to make the move official." The company said it has no plans to make large-scale moves of any existing San Diego-based functions or facilities.
AMCC provides the essential building blocks for the processing, transporting and storing of information over converged networks. The company blends systems and software expertise with high-performance, high-bandwidth silicon integration to deliver silicon, hardware and software solutions for global wide area networks (WAN), embedded applications such as PowerPC and programmable SOC architectures, storage area networks (SAN), and high-growth storage markets such as Serial ATA (SATA) RAID.
