Achronix to Feature FPGA Solutions for Data Center Network Acceleration at SmartNICs Summit

Press Releases Date

Santa Clara, Calif., April 14, 2022Achronix Semiconductor Corporation, a leader in high-performance FPGAs and embedded FPGA (eFPGA) IP, announces it will showcase FPGA solutions for data center network acceleration at the first-ever SmartNICs Summit. Attendees are invited to visit Achronix at our booth and contact us for a demonstration of our technology.


In its first year, SmartNICs Summit is the only event focused on the rapidly expanding SmartNICs market, which is expected to rise to $600M by 2024. This in-person event examines best practices and use cases in SmartNICs, a new technology that adds intelligence and programmability to offload data center servers and reduce demand on CPUs with flexible, programmable SmartNIC accelerator cards.


See Achronix in our booth where we will demonstrate our FPGA-enabled SmartNIC platform, a wire-speed flexible architecture that supports four 400G Ethernet interfaces with 16+8 lanes of PCIe Gen5.


Senior Product Planning Manager Scott Schweitzer will present a tutorial and serve on state-of-the-industry panels at the conference.
