Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, a leader in high-performance FPGAs and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, and Signoff Semiconductors, a spec-to-silicon FPGA and ASIC design services company, have partnered to offer expert FPGA and eFPGA IP design services solutions for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) applications. Signoff will develop AI and deep-learning accelerators, inferencing solutions, and edge IoT processors using Achronix’s FPGA and eFPGA IP technology. This partnership will accelerate time to market, leveraging Signoff Semiconductors proven FPGA and ASIC design expertise alongside Achronix’s leading Speedster7t FPGA and Speedcore eFPGA IP platforms.
As the complexity of designing efficient processing of AI and ML algorithms increases, customers need access to proven design services companies that have expertise in developing solutions on leading-edge semiconductor platforms. This partnership enables Signoff Semiconductor to have direct access to Achronix’s silicon, IP and support services, which will accelerate customers’ time to market. Signoff Semiconductors has industry-proven expert design services focused on both FPGA and ASIC designs for AI/ML applications. This expertise is ideal for Achronix customers, enabling access to the same design services company to target both FPGA and eFPGA IP based solutions.
“Achronix partnered with Signoff Semiconductor to provide our customers with proven experts in AI/ML design services,” said Steve Mensor, VP of Sales and Marketing at Achronix. “Their ability to target both FPGAs and ASICs that incorporate eFPGA IP provides our customers with the ability to design both standalone FPGAs and then migrate those designs to an ASIC with eFPGA IP, using the same design services partner.”
“The migration to Achronix FPGAs is a strong addition to our partnership solutions portfolio. Together, we are offering tremendous potential to our mutual customers by enabling them to accelerate the product development process,” said Vikram Khemchandani, CEO and Co-Founder of Signoff Semiconductors. “Achronix FPGAs and eFPGA technology solutions are the ideal fit for high-performance, data-acceleration applications.”
