Understanding Alphawave Semi

Our technology services a critical need…

Globally, we are faced with an exponential growth of data.

Alphawave Semi builds industry-leading wired connectivity solutions that enable data to travel faster, more reliably, and with higher performance at lower power.

Our technology is embedded in leading-edge semiconductors built to power global network and computer systems. It is an essential part of the core infrastructure enabling next generation services in data centres, artificial intelligence, 5G wireless infrastructure, data networking, autonomous vehicles, and solid-state storage.

Our Business Model

Our vertically integrated business model enables our customers to deploy our high-speed connectivity technology in a range of form factors.

Customers can license our high-performance IP or they can buy a finished semiconductor with our IP, designed to meet their specific requirements (custom silicon).

Hyperscalers, semiconductor vendors, and OEMs all have semiconductors that need bleeding-edge, high-speed connectivity and we are one of the only providers that can provide this technology.

We provide a key component of the value chain creating semiconductor IP that forms critical building blocks in semiconductor designs

Custom Silicon Model

Our customers pay us for specialized custom silicon SOC solutions that are optimized for power, performance, and area. A custom silicon arrangement typically includes:

  • Non-Recurring Engineering fees (NRE), including IP licensing fees
  • Price per silicon

Our Strategy

We build on our strengths to grow our business and increase our market share of the global wired connectivity market for data infrastructure:

  • Maintain pace of innovation and technology leadership by attracting and retaining talent
  • Continue to execute our land-and-expand strategy winning new opportunities with existing customers and broaden our customer base in our target end markets
  • Leverage our differentiated IP to expand our product portfolio and grow our custom silicon business
