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.”

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.
Aquantia’s 10Gigabit Ethernet ICs are at the heart of cloud computing
and large-scale data center deployments taking place today. This market
segment is going through a very fast transition, with astounding growth
in the total amount of compute power and the move to faster
connectivity. This has in turn led to a new paradigm for 10Gigabit
Ethernet all across the ecosystem. With its 10GBASE-T silicon products,
Aquantia delivers to its OEM customers the most versatile and highest
performance 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity solution while providing
lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Located in Silicon Valley,
Aquantia is a venture-backed company, with strong tier-1 VCs and
strategic investor support. For more information, visit www.aquantia.com.
