Alchemy was founded in Austin, Texas, in 1999 with an investment Cadence Design Systems, Inc. The original Alchemy development team consisted of former DEC Alpha and StrongARM engineers. In May 2000, Alchemy Semiconductor became a solely independent company through funding from US Venture Partners (USVP), Austin Ventures, and Telos Ventures.
In February 2002 AMD acquired Alchemy for approximately $50 million in cash in order to compete with Intel's ARM-based XScale processors. By June of 2006, the Alchemy assets were transferred to Raza Microelectronics, later renamed RMI Corporation. In October 2009 RMI merged with NetLogic Microsystems, who was acquired by Broadcom in 2012.
