Originally established in 1985, Alliance Semiconductor Corporation is a company that designs and manufactures memory and memory-intensive logic products. Alliance Semiconductor also spent a portion of their history selling video chipsets for personal computers. Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, Alliance Semiconductor has garnered a worldwide reach with state of the art design centers in Santa Clara as well as Bangalore and Hyderabad, India.
Over the years, Alliance Semiconductor has been able to remain afloat in the market with an extensive portfolio of products and significant market demand for their ProMotion line. The Alliance Semiconductor ProMotion product line consists of various types of RAM that include DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory), SRAM (Static Random Access Memory) and PSRAM (Pseudo SRAM) as well as embedded memory, Flash memory and logic solutions. The company no longer produces graphics controllers for video card and OEM computer system vendors, however, they have made a set of generic drivers available to the public, a move that was done to show courtesy to its loyal vendors. While these Alliance Semiconductor ProMotion drivers can be obtained from the company website, the manufacturer is reminding customers that the drivers are not updated or otherwise supported in anyway.
In the beginning of 2005, Alliance Semiconductor made it a priority to transition its focus from being a company targeting the semiconductor market and investing in emerging entities to one dedicated to maximizing return to its shareholders. Now focused on managing its short-term investments, Alliance states that the transformation is complete. Always utilizing the best business practices, in July 2007 the company paid out a special cash dividend of $3.75 per share to its shareholders along with an additional $0.25 per share in April of 2008. As of now, the Alliance Semiconductor Board of Directors is committed to evaluating a number of alternatives to better determine the company’s direction for the future.
