LONDON, United Kingdom, Chandler, Arizona, USA, and TORONTO, Ontario, Canada February 7, 2022 – Alphawave IP (LN:AWE), a global leader in high-speed connectivity for the world’s technology infrastructure, is pleased to announce entering a partnership with Intel Foundry Services (“IFS”). Under the partnership, Alphawave IP has joined the IFS Accelerator – IP Alliance as an anchor member, focused on providing leading-edge connectivity solutions for mutual customers with IFS.

Tony Pialis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alphawave stated, “the leadership team at Alphawave IP has a deep heritage of close collaboration with Intel since 2009. When Intel launched IFS, they brought advanced semiconductor capacity online at high scale. Intel Foundry Services offers a wide range of manufacturing services to meet customers’ unique product needs. We are pleased to be an anchor member of the IFS Accelerator – IP Alliance, which will enable our mutual customers to build some of the most advanced semiconductor products in the world, with IFS as their manufacturing one-stop-shop.”
