Achronix announced today that its revenues will grow over 700% year-over-year and will exceed $100M in 2017. Achronix's exceptional growth is driven primarily by sales of its Speedster22i FPGA family and licensing of its Speedcore embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP products. Achronix revenues began to significantly ramp in 2016 and the company reached profitability in Q1 2017. As a result of its strong revenue growth and new design activity, Achronix plans to expand its headcount in three key locations: The additional headcount will enable Achronix to accelerate its investment in innovative technologies that will further differentiate its products and continue to drive growth. Achronix plans to increase its total headcount by 35% by the end of 2017. "2017 is a breakout growth year, which establishes Achronix as one of the fastest growing semiconductor companies in the world. We are experiencing strong customer demand for both our Speedster FPGAs as well as our newer Speedcore embedded FPGA in hardware accelerator applications. We are looking for new talent to complement a very strong core team to continue delivering highly innovative silicon and software products," said Robert Blake, President and CEO, Achronix Semiconductor. "Looking forward, we are entering a new high growth era where our customized core FPGA technology can accelerate a broad range of complex compute tasks in machine learning, artificial intelligence, software defined networks and 5G base stations." The fastest growth segment in the semiconductor industry is hardware accelerator devices that offload CPU data processing and super charge system performance. This segment is expected to grow over 60% per year through 2020 driven primarily, by programmable solutions to implement algorithm changes that will be needed to optimize performance for years to come. Of the various programmable architectural options, FPGAs with their ability to create massively parallel structures are the lowest power and the highest performance solutions. All of Achronix product lines are built for hardware acceleration applications: The enormous data and computational requirements from Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems such as machine learning, deep learning, computer and embedded vision, along with 5G wireless infrastructure are driving the market for hardware accelerator devices that offload CPU data processing and super charge system performance. FPGAs, with their ability to create massively parallel structures as hardware accelerator devices, can be reprogrammed to support changing algorithms and are the lowest power and highest performance programmable hardware accelerators. Speedcore eFPGA delivers further performance acceleration with 10x lower latency and 10x higher bandwidth compared to standalone FPGAs. Speedcore is currently being used or evaluated for high performance acceleration systems including data center acceleration, automotive ADAS, database acceleration, and 5G wireless infrastructure. Speedcore IP is embedded FPGA (eFPGA) that can be integrated into an ASIC or SoC. Customers specify their logic, RAM and DSP resource needs, then Achronix configures the Speedcore IP to meet their individual requirements. Speedcore look-up-tables (LUTs), RAM blocks and DSP64 blocks can be assembled like Lego blocks to create the optimal programmable function for any given application.

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - November 03, 2016) - Achronix today announced that its Speedcore™ eFPGA IP was selected as the "Best Chip Product" at ARM TechCon. A panel of judges from Design News and ARM selected the most innovative exhibitor product in four categories: Best Chip Product, Best IoT Product, Best Software Product, and Best System and then determined the best product in each category. Achronix received the Best Chip Product award during the October 26th afternoon keynote session at ARM TechCon at the Santa Clara Convention center. Criteria for selection of the Innovation Challenge awards included: "It's an honor to receive industry recognition of our Speedcore eFPGA product," said Steve Mensor, Vice President of Marketing, Achronix Semiconductor. "Four years ago, Achronix began talking to companies about delivering our FPGA technology for integration in their SoCs. Through those discussions it become clear to us that our FPGA IP would be used for accelerators in critical technology for companies developing data center, software defined networks and 5G cellular infrastructure products. Since announcing Speedcore in October and recently winning the ARM TechCon Best Chip Product award, new customer interest has exploded." Speedcore is FPGA technology that is delivered to customers as IP for integration directly into their SoCs. Compute and communications companies require coherent accelerators to increase the performance of their systems to address the exponential data growth associated with the Internet, cloud compute and IoT. A Speedcore embedded FPGA accelerator connected directly to the SoC bus structure eliminates latency and coherency challenges that exist with standalone GPU or FPGA products. Speedcore power consumption is 50% less than standalone FPGAs as a result of eliminating IO structures and SerDes required to move data from a separate device to the SoC. Additionally Speedcore delivers 10x higher interface bandwidth and dramatically reduces system costs by eliminating the standalone FPGA and the costs associated with the standalone FPGA including: Achronix is a privately held, fabless semiconductor corporation based in Santa Clara, California.
