Achronix Semiconductor, a leader in high-performance FPGA and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, and Mobiveil, a fast-growing technology company that focuses on the development of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and solutions for storage, networking, artificial intelligence and enterprises announced the establishment of a partnership to provide Mobiveil’s soft IP product portfolio to designers targeting Achronix devices.
As the only independent high-end FPGA semiconductor company that provides both high-end independent FPGA and eFPGA IP technologies, Achronix is in a unique position to meet the needs of high-performance applications that require programmable hardware accelerators. The demand for FPGA-based data accelerators is driven by the rapid expansion of high-growth markets including AI, Cloud, 5G and ADAS. Achronix’s product portfolio is aimed at a data acceleration market of nearly 10 billion U.S. dollars, and it is expected that by 2025, its compound annual growth rate will reach double digits.

Compared with solutions based on CPU and GPU, Achronix’s data acceleration solution can provide the best performance per watt, and has the additional advantage of hardware flexibility to support ever-changing accelerated workloads. Now, the demand for computing performance doubles every three to four months, so the demand for FPGA-based dedicated hardware accelerators is growing rapidly.
“Through our partnership with Mobiveil, we enable customers to greatly accelerate their FPGA development by providing proven interconnect solutions for storage, networking and computing applications,” said Steve Mensor, vice president of sales and marketing at Achronix. “Moreover, Mobiveil’s design services expertise allows customers to reach experts who can create customized solutions optimized for Achronix FPGAs.”
Mobiveil uses decades of experience to provide high-quality, production-proven, high-speed serial interconnect SIP cores and custom and standard hardware boards for leading customers around the world. Mobiveil recently announced the CXL 2.0 design IP (COMPEX) that can be used in data center applications. For the PCI Express-based flash storage market, Mobiveil has developed an FPGA-based NVMe SSD platform, which includes PCI Express Gen5 Controller (GPEX), NVM Express Controller (UNEX), Universal Memory Controller (UMMC), low-density parity Checksum (LDPC) encoder/decoder and flash memory controller (ONFI/switch).
Mobiveil CEO Ravi Thummarukudy said: “Our partnership with Achronix provides our mutual customers with great potential to accelerate product development.” “Mobiveil’s FPGA-based application platform for CXL, SSD and AI applications can be easily promoted Customer product development. In addition, our product engineering services include FPGA design, board/system design and software development, which can expand the customer’s engineering team in a cost-effective manner.”
