Achronix: Accelerating Growth By Accelerating Hardware

 
August 3rd, 2017 by Jeff Rowe

As a diversified fabless semiconductor company that sells high-end FPGA products, embedded FPGA (eFPGA) products, system-level products, and supporting EDA design tools, Achronix Semiconductor has a history of delivering innovations in programmable logic that set the bar high for performance, power, and cost.

Achronix was founded in 2004 in Ithaca, New York, and has achieved sales of over $100M YTD in 2017, making it one of the highest growth semiconductor companies globally.

The origin of the company’s name was derived from the asynchronous technology it originally supported, but has since moved to a more traditional synchronous architecture which is incorporated in all of its products today.

In 2013, Achronix delivered the industry’s most advanced FPGAs with the introduction of Speedster22i FPGA family with embedded system-level IP for high performance wireline applications. Speedster22i family was the first application-specific FPGAs that enabled and high-performance programmable designs.

In October 2016, Achronix announced the production availability of Speedcore embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP for integration into customers’ Systems-on-Chips (SoCs). Since then, the demand for Speedcore IP has been very high. Speedcore IP is designed for compute and network acceleration applications and is based on the same high-performance architecture found in the company’s Speedster22i FPGAs.

All Achronix products are supported by the Achronix ACE EDA design tools that support synthesis, place and route, plus timing closure and debug tools. ACE works in conjunction with industry-standard synthesis tools, allowing FPGA designers to map their designs into Achronix FPGAs.
