Do you know who had another great year? Alphawave Semi did. Despite being relatively young in the industry (founded in 2017), the company has quickly gained recognition for its advancements in high-speed connectivity solutions.
They specialize in developing high-speed connectivity solutions for Data centre, AI, 5G wireless infrastructure, Data networking, Autonomous vehicles, and Solid-state storage. Their focus on advanced connectivity and signal processing technologies has positioned them as key players in the industry.
Alphawave Semi is all about pushing the boundaries of high-speed connectivity. They design and develop semiconductor IP (Intellectual Property) solutions that enable fast and efficient data transfer within electronic devices. Their expertise lies in working closely with customers and partners developing advanced connectivity and signal processing technologies.
It has been an honor to work with Alpha Semi CEO Tony Pialis and his growing team of top notch professionals. As far as semiconductor ecosystem CEOs I would put Tony in my top 10, absolutely.
In my opinion chiplets will be one of the most disruptive semiconductor technologies and Alphawave Semi will be one of the companies leading the way starting with:
Reconfigurable ZeusCORE100 SerDes IO with integrated protocol controllers, security IP and AresCORE (that is, D2D-UCIe) IP that enables up to 1.6T of throughput at MR, XLR, and PCIe/CXL reaches.
- Medium Reach Optical Driver Chiplet
- Extra Long Reach Ethernet Chiplet
- Combo PCIe/CXL/Ethernet Chiplet
- 1.6T high speed IO Chiplet
High performance, Arm® or RISC-V-based accelerator chiplets—enables data acceleration through Arm or RISC-V multi-core accelerator SOCs)
Low Latency, high speed DDR5 and memory controller; includes multi-core CPU with L1 and L2 caches.
Chiplets can contribute to significant cost reductions by reducing chip design time, more efficient use of wafers, resulting in improved flexibility and scalability in both design and manufacturing.
While the adoption of chiplets may involve initial challenges in terms of design and integration, the long-term benefits, the ability to keep Moore’s Law moving along more than justifies the return on investment.
Bottom line: To further reduce the overall risk of implementing a chiplet based design strategy, working with ecosystem experts like Alphawave Semi is critical, absolutely.
