GigOptix Offers Its Custom Structured ASIC Solutions for Rapid Productization of Cryptocurrency Bit Mining Chip and Application with Partners

GigOptix, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GIG), a leading supplier of advanced high speed semiconductor components and Structured ASIC chips for use in various areas such as Cloud connectivity, data centers, consumer electronics links and interactive applications, through optical and wireless communications networks, today announced that its Custom Structured ASIC applications are establishing GigOptix as one the foremost providers of ASICs for the fast growing cryptocurrency bit mining market.

Based on recent product releases, the combination of GigOptix’s leading Structured ASIC and Standard Cell technology have proven the customizable CMOS platform to be a cost effective, high-performance structured ASIC solution with a dramatically reduced product turnaround time compared to traditional ASIC sources. This makes it an excellent offering to address the recently emerging computationally intensive cryptocurrency applications like Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ripple (XRP), Peercoin (PPC), Mastercoin (MSC), and Namecoin (NMC).

“GigOptix Structured ASICs provide a quickly deployed, low cost alternative in high-speed systems where FPGAs have been traditionally employed. We are pleased to see a strong interest in cryptocurrency applications where high speed is paramount and low power is becoming more important,” said Anil Chaudhry, Vice President and General Manager of the ASIC Product Line at GigOptix. “Many cryptocurrencies have increasing computational complexity with rapid design cycles, which GigOptix Structured ASICs know-how and Intellectual Property (IP) address efficiently through advanced CMOS processes and fast turnaround times. We take care of the productized silicon so that our customers – from recreational hobbyists to the most advanced commercial digital drilling operations – can focus on their algorithms and system interaction.”

GigOptix’s Custom Structured ASIC technology requires customization of only the metal interconnect layers, making the development cost a fraction of the upfront Non-Recurring Engineering (NRE) investment normally required by other suppliers for a fully custom Standard Cell ASIC. GigOptix technology enables the bit mining system developers to access the necessary technology for building ASICs at an affordable upfront cost instead of using high powered, high cost FPGA’s or high NRE fully custom Standard Cell ASICs. The reduced manufacturing turnaround times associated with GigOptix Custom Structured ASICs are a further advantage to the bit mining community, where fast time to market is critical to the successful deployment of new systems.

GigOptix is actively engaged as a partner for silicon manufacturing for the bit mining community’s newest ASIC designs, with a wide range of applications from the smallest silicon geometries to larger process nodes. This enables a variety of project scales and related budgets, thus minimizing the upfront development costs normally associated with this type of ASIC development. By leveraging robust customization, developers will benefit from lower development costs while delivering a faster time to market.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
