Established in 1996, Alcor Micro Corporation is a Taiwan based, fabless IC Design Company with operations located globally. With an engineering team founded originally in Santa Clara, the heart of Silicon Valley; Alcor designs, develops, and markets highly integrated semiconductor chips and software solutions for the personal computer peripheral and consumer electronics markets.
Alcor Micro was one of the first IC companies to bring an ultra-low cost USB Hub controller IC solution to the PC market. Our reputation was expanded by delivering the world’s first single chip USB keyboard & hub solution in 1999, which was integrated into the world’s first ‘USB only’ PC (the iMac). Alcor is one of the leaders in low cost, single chip USB solutions, and offers other controller IC solutions as well. Alcor recently arranged the internal organization to strategically focus on 2 primary product lines as four business units: Input & Output devices and Multi Media and Storage Device Controllers.
