The GSA identified leading semiconductor companies that have demonstrated market growth through technological innovation and exceptional business management strategies.

“We are humbled that the GSA and our peers have again recognized Quantenna as a company that is relentlessly pushing the semiconductor Wi-Fi market,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, Chairman and CEO at Quantenna. “This award is the perfect ending to our journey as a private company and we look forward to writing a new chapter of our success as a public company.”
