AMCC Selects TeamF1’s Managed Access Point Solution for AMCC’s PowerPC 405EX Processor

MAPS turnkey package for SMB market offers comprehensive 802.11 support; leverages high performance and advanced security resources of AMCC’s PowerPC 405EX

FREMONT, Calif.— June 4th, 2007 — TeamF1, Inc. (, the leader in embedded networking and security software, announced that it has been selected to integrate its Managed Access Point Solution software (MAPS) on to the new PowerPC 405EX processor from Applied Micro Circuits Corp. (AMCC) (NASDAQ:AMCC).

TeamF1’s Managed Access Point solution is a comprehensive turnkey software package that
combines the latest 802.11 wireless standards with field-proven networking and security
components. With its support for the latest drafts of the new 802.11n standard, MAPS is
especially suited for high-performance wireless applications that need advanced management
and hardware acceleration capabilities to meet demanding performance requirements.

The PowerPC 405EX is an embedded processor designed for next-generation WLAN
applications—like those provided by TeamF1’s MAPS—requiring exceptional
performance, small footprint, and low power. MAPS software also supports the 405EX’s Turbo
Security Engine, which incorporates an advanced security engine with header/trailer
processing capability and support for the broadest range of security protocols.

“The integration of MAPS with AMCC’s PowerPC 405EX will be another milestone in our
strategic alliance,” said Mukesh Lulla, president of TeamF1. “Previously, we integrated
our managed access point middleware (Air Secure Access Point, or ASAP) with AMCC’s PowerPC
405EP platform, enabling devices to add embedded secure AP features with minimal
integration effort. Since MAPS was built on the foundation of ASAP, AMCC knows that its
customers will receive software with field-proven components and a state-of-the-art
management framework shared with other TeamF1 SMBware™ solutions.”

“We are pleased that TeamF1’s MAPS software will be available for the PowerPC 405EX
processor,” said Charlie Ashton, director of software at AMCC. “The PowerPC 405EX is an
ideal solution for enterprise WLAN access points and MAPS provides the networking and
security features that our customers need. We expect many customers to adopt the PowerPC
405EX running MAPS software as a way to minimize time-to-market for their products.”


The PowerPC 405EX will sample in the third quarter of 2007. The Managed Access Point
Solution will be available on the PowerPC 405EX in Q4 of 2007 with flexible licensing
terms including a source code license and a variety of production license (royalty)
