Alphawave Semi was Buzzing at DAC 2023

Captivating the Crowd and Making a Memorable Impact

Alphawave Semi’s super sleek booth at this year’s Design Automation Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco was the place to be! Our experts engaged large audiences to learn up-to-date information and see our cutting-edge high-speed connectivity solutions in action. Industry leaders, engineers and students from around the world flocked to hear and see our specialists present, panel, and give live demos showcasing products optimizing including PCIe 6.0/CXL3.0, 112G Ethernet XLR, chiplets, and HBM3 memory.

Alphawave Semi’s connectivity IP and chiplet-enabled custom silicon continue to scale, fueled by the exponential surge in data processing for applications such as generative AI at our global hyperscaler customers.

The Alphawave Semi “Experience” at DAC 2023

Forward-thinking Perspectives: Inspire and Influence

A significant number of DAC attendees gathered to listen to Alphawave Semi’s Mohit Gupta and Clint Walker knowledge-share with unrivaled perspectives! Participating in panel discussions and giving presentations on hot topics including “The Industry 4.0 Revolution of Semiconductor Design” and “Chiplet and Die-to-Die (D2D) Interface Interoperability – How to Accelerate the Path to an Open Ecosystem”, Mohit and Clint really know how to engage and keep people listening intently!

Mohit Gupta enlightened and inspired the panel discussion


“In this new fast-moving generation of computing, custom silicon plays a major role, and that’s why high-speed data connectivity is so important. In older systems, power was only important for battery, now power has the main stage for systems design. The future of heterogeneous computing is chiplets!”

-Mohit Gupta, SVP & GM, IP and Custom Silicon



Clint Walker educated attendees about UCIe and chiplet ecosystem


“Two of the key technologies to enable chiplets are UCIe and advanced packaging. With these, a robust ecosystem of chiplets will help reduce costs by 35% and reduce time to market”.

-Clint Walker, VP Marketing




Fostering understanding to ignite dynamic solutions for rapid evolution

We’re all about accelerating data transfer and transmission speeds with low power/latency. Our experts delighted large audiences with live captivating demos and stimulating discussions, while skillfully addressing inquiries and providing insightful answers! We’re the first company to announce UCIe PHY IP supporting faster die-to-die data rates of 24Gbps per lane, delivering bandwidth of 7.9 Terabits per second over a tight space of a mm of a chip beachfront. Not surprisingly, Alphawave Semi is on the forefront of keeping up with industry standards!
