Achronix Semiconductor

Achronix Semiconductor is a privately held fabless corporation based in San Jose, California. Achronix builds the world's fastest field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) which use a unique, patented circuit technology, providing 2GHz throughput; a significant performance advantage over existing FPGA technology. Target markets for Achronix FPGAs include communications, networking, high performance computing, digital signal processing, aerospace and defense systems, medical imaging, and a growing range of other areas.

Founded in New York in 2004, Achronix relocated its corporate headquarters to San Jose, California in 2006, while maintaining its Ithaca, New York location as a research and development facility. Achronix has attracted top semiconductor veterans and is well funded by major Venture Capital firms.

Achronix Semiconductor designs and manufactures two principal product lines: The Achronix-ULTRA line of ultra fast FPGAs, operating at near 2GHz, and the Achronix-XTREME line of fast FPGAs, designed to operate near 1GHz in high radiation and extreme temperature environments. By providing both of these product lines to its commercial and government customers, Achronix is well positioned to capture a segment of the application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) market previously inaccessible to FPGA manufacturers.

Using a revolutionary patented architecture that is one of the core intellectual property components of Achronix Semiconductor, the Achronix-ULTRA line of ultra-fast FPGAs offers the highest performance ever offered by a CMOS Silicon FPGA, in a high density and low cost package. While offering speeds in the 1.6GHz - 2.2GHz range, the Achronix-ULTRA line of FPGAs is a product that features common interface standards for simple integration into existing designs, a set of roboust software tools and a low power architecture that consumes significantly less power than leading FPGAs available today.

Building on the architecture used in the Achronix-ULTRA product line, the Achronix-XTREME product line offers near GHz speeds with reliability in high radiation environments and over a 390°C temperature range (from -260°C to +130°C).
