Austin, TX
It's vision is to revolutionize the development and implementation of internet applications by building a new class of integrated circuits. The company intends to take advantage of a key trend emerging in the networking and communications space: the evolution towards a data-centric infrastructure model where intelligent services can be applied.

(Formerly known as AMD Telecommunications?)
Welcome to Legerity, the PROVEN communication IC company.
Our integrated circuits are at the heart of the world's voice and data communication networks. Pick up a phone and place a call, connect to the Internet, or send an e-mail, and there's a very good chance your voice or data message will travel through semiconductors produced by Legerity. In fact, one out of every three voice or data calls -- more than any other communication IC supplier -- passes through Legerity ICs.
Legerity is a proven leader in voice IC solutions, with the industry's broadest portfolio of voice communication chipsets, extensive intellectual property (600+ patents, with 400 more pending) and a blue-chip customer base. We offer a rare combination of technical strengths to meet complex application challenges -- from analog, digital and mixed-signal design capabilities to advanced bipolar and CMOS process technologies to voice and data system expertise backed by global applications support.
Legerity is developing new IC solutions to drive down the cost and increase the density of linecard solutions for traditional voice communications. And Legerity is spearheading breakthroughs in voice-over-broadband, line driver and integrated voice+data technology that will revolutionize the way we communicate at home and at work.
