Achronix buys IP and expertise from Accolade to strengthen its SmartNIC solution

FPGA company Achronix acquired intellectual property and some more design capabilities in the area of smart network interface card solutions from FPGA-based networking solution provider Accolade. Accolade is expert in offering packet processing using FPGA for networking applications. Achronix has acquired a full function Ethernet shell FPGA IP for its Speedster FPGA, VectorPath accelerator card and Speedcore Efpga. This programmable-silicon intellectual property offers functions such as packet processing, load balancing and flow processing, all the key functions in a typical SmartNIC application.

"Today, chip designers are being asked to deliver solutions that are flexible, offer high performance and get to market quickly. Solving these challenges simultaneously is a complex process, which Accolade's FPGA IP accelerates significantly," said Steve Mensor, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Planning at Achronix. "Our acquisition of assets and expertise from Accolade benefits Achronix customers by enabling them to focus on creating their value-added functions and deliver their solutions faster, easier, and more cost-effectively than
ever before."

"We are excited to be part of Achronix," said Jon Sreekanth, CTO of Accolade. "Combining Achronix and Accolade technologies will significantly reduce time to market for SmartNIC designs and make Accolade IP available to a much wider customer base to drive SmartNIC solutions even farther."
