Aquantia Wins ‘Company of the Year’ EE Times and EDN 2014 ACE Awards
Leader in 10 Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity ICs for Data Centers Among Industry’s Elite
Aquantia, the market leader of high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for data centers, mobile and Enterprise infrastructure, today announced it received the “Company of the Year” honors in UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards. The award was presented to company executives during a ceremony on Tuesday in San Jose.
Aquantia’s selection was due to strong financial performance as a privately-held company, the adoption of its game-changing technology with major system vendors, and its ability to deliver leading-edge technology with the recently announced low-power, 28 nanometer generation of 10GBASE-T silicon.
"Everyone at Aquantia is proud to receive the ACE Awards “Company of the Year’ honors,” said Faraj Aalaei, president and CEO of Aquantia. “Innovation and execution are the heart of our culture at Aquantia. For the last four generations of process technology, our engineers have amassed multiple honors of being the first to innovate and deliver what our customers demand. Aquantia has a strong technology play that has delivered successive generations of disruptive advances and the company is positioned for continued success in multiple high-growth markets.”
EE Times and EDN ACE Awards were presented in 25 categories and are judged by a blue-ribbon panel of industry experts, comprised of the leading voices of academia, industry executives and content experts. The Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards celebrate the creators of technology who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global industry and shape the world we live in. These creators, and their innovations, were recognized at the EE Times and EDN ACE Awards ceremony on April 1, 2014, as part of UBM Tech’s EE Live! Conference.
10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) continues to grow rapidly in data centers, where it is now predicted to surpass shipment of Gigabit Ethernet ports by the end of 2014, according to Crehan Research. Among the 10GE connectivity solutions, 10GE over Copper (10GBASE-T) is witnessing the strongest growth and support, soon projected to become the dominant connectivity solutions in switches and servers. Aquantia’s recently announced 28nm silicon promises to further the penetration of the technology in cloud service providers and corporate data centers.
Aquantia’s ability to translate market-leading technology into business success was evidenced recently as it received the Global Semiconductor Association’s (GSA) Most Respected Private Company Award, as well as the Cisco New Emerging Technology Supplier Award.
Aquantia’s 10Gigabit Ethernet ICs are at the heart of cloud computing and large-scale data center deployments taking place today. This market segment is going through a very fast transition, with astounding growth in the total amount of compute power and the move to faster connectivity. This has in turn led to a new paradigm for 10Gigabit Ethernet all across the ecosystem. With its 10GBASE-T silicon products, Aquantia delivers to its OEM customers the most versatile and highest performance 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity solution while providing lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Located in Silicon Valley, Aquantia is a venture-backed company, with strong tier-1 VCs and strategic investor support.
