Aquantia Named ‘Company of the Year’ Finalist for Prestigious 2014 EE Times and EDN ACE Awards

Aquantia, the market leader of high-speed Ethernet connectivity solutions for data centers, mobile and Enterprise infrastructure, today announced it was named a finalist in UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards for “Company of the Year.”

Aquantia’s selection is due to strong financial performance as a privately-held company, the adoption of its game-changing technology with major system vendors, and its ability to deliver leading-edge technology with the recently announced low-power, 28 nanometer generation of 10GBASE-T silicon.

“Everyone at Aquantia is honored to be named an ACE Awards ‘Company of the Year’ finalist,” said Faraj Aalaei, president and CEO of Aquantia. “Innovation and execution are the heart of our culture at Aquantia. For the last four generations of process technology, our engineers have amassed multiple honors of being the first to innovate and deliver what our customers demand. Aquantia has a strong technology play that has delivered successive generations of disruptive advances and the company is positioned for continued success in multiple high-growth markets.”

EE Times and EDN ACE Awards are presented in 25 categories and are judged by a blue-ribbon panel of industry experts, comprised of the leading voices of academia, industry executives and content experts.

“Congratulations and a sincere ‘thank you’ to all our award finalists for the inspiration you continue to provide to the electronics industry at large each and every day,” said Patrick Mannion, VP/Brand Director, UBM Tech, Electronics. “Each year our awards program showcases the unique best of breed products, companies and individuals that have influenced our industry. The 2014 finalists represent the execution of true creativity and progressive technologies that illustrates the influence electronics and design professionals have on today’s culture.”

The Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards celebrate the creators of technology who demonstrate leadership and innovation in the global industry and shape the world we live in. These creators, and their innovations, will be recognized at the EE Times and EDN ACE Awards ceremony on April 1, 2014, as part of UBM Tech’s EE Live! Conference.

As wireless traffic explodes with the proliferation of ever faster mobile devices, bottlenecks in the wired network infrastructure are becoming more prevalent. This will create a significant opportunity not seen since the last infrastructure upgrade that lead the transition from Fast Ethernet to Gigabit Ethernet more than 12 years ago.

10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GE) continues to grow rapidly in data centers, where it is now predicted to surpass shipment of Gigabit Ethernet ports by the end of 2014, according to Crehan Research. Among the 10GE connectivity solutions, 10GE over Copper (10GBASE-T) is witnessing the strongest growth and support, soon projected to become the dominant connectivity solutions in switches and servers. Aquantia’s recently announced 28nm silicon promises to further the penetration of the technology in cloud service providers and corporate data centers.

Aquantia’s ability to translate market-leading technology into business success was evidenced recently as it received the Global Semiconductor Association’s (GSA) Most Respected Private Company Award, as well as the Cisco New Emerging Technology Supplier Award.
