Achronix and Signoff offer AI/ML FPGA and eFPGA IP design services
Achronix Semiconductor and Signoff Semiconductors have partnered to offer FPGA and eFPGA IP design services solutions for artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) applications
The agreement will see Signoff 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 expertise in FPGA and ASIC design alongside Achronix’s Speedster7t FPGA and Speedcore eFPGA IP platforms.
As the complexity of designing efficient processing of AI and ML algorithms increases, customers are increasingly requiring access to proven design services companies that have expertise in developing solutions on leading-edge semiconductor platforms.
This partnership will enable Signoff Semiconductor to have direct access to Achronix’s silicon, IP and support services, which will help to accelerate customers’ time to market. Signoff Semiconductors has expert design services focused on both FPGA and ASIC designs for AI/ML applications. This expertise makes a good fit for Achronix customers, providing 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,” added 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.”
