AMD prepares to dump Alchemy line of embedded processors

By Justin Mann on June 13, 2006, 6:25 PM
Unless you are familiar with embedded devices or follow AMD closely, you probably haven't heard about AMD's Alchemy line of processors. However, they are very popular for use in small and low power devices such as radio kits, handhelds, et cetera. AMD isn't content with the line, though, and will soon be selling off Alchemy to another company. Raza Microelectronics will be acquiring AMD's non-x86 embedded line will shortly be owned by Raza for an undisclosed sum.

Though they are getting rid of the line, it is known that AMD has hope for it and that they are investing in Raza. AMD and Raza will be working closely together in the future on other projects, so likely it will be a fairly seamless transition for the manufacturers that rely on Alchemy parts.
