Aeonsemi Achieves Key Milestone of Its Arcadium Silicon Oscillator Products
Santa Clara, CA and Nanjing, China, Mar 31, 2023 – Aeonsemi, a leading provider of mixed-signal communications ICs, is proud to announce a significant milestone of its silicon oscillator technology. The company has successfully shipped over 10 million units of its Arcadium™ monolithic silicon oscillator products with zero defects, demonstrating the technology’s superior quality and reliability using mainstream CMOS IC supply chain. The products were shipped to customers representing a broad range of applications including broadband access, networking, data center and industrial. The volume shipment milestone achieved with these demanding customers marks the beginning of the technology’s adoption in a segment dominated by traditional quartz technology.
The global oscillator market size is estimated to reach $4.0 billion by 2023 according to Marketsandmarkets. The current oscillator market is largely served by crystal-based oscillators, a technology that has remained stagnant for almost 100 years. Arcadium™ oscillators are pure CMOS oscillators that leverage advanced circuit innovations and compensation algorithms to achieve excellent phase jitter and frequency stability while providing greater reliability than their crystal-based counterparts. Furthermore, their wide range in frequency programmability and flexible output driver configuration allow customers to consolidate component libraries and streamline product development.
"We are seeing just the beginning of this exciting silicon oscillator technology. Our customers love our ability to respond to their needs very quickly thanks to the simplified supply chain enabled by the technology." said Yunteng Huang, CEO of Aeonsemi." We are incredibly proud of reaching this significant milestone of shipping 10 million units without a single defect. It is a testimony for the range of benefits of silicon oscillators that we believe in."
Aeonsemi's achievement of zero defects not only showcases its manufacturing capabilities but also reinforces its position as a trusted partner in the industry. Customers can rely on Aeonsemi's silicon oscillator products to provide reliable timing and synchronization, enabling the seamless operation of their critical applications.
As Aeonsemi continues to grow and expand its product offerings through continuous improvement and innovation, the company remains committed to maintaining the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction.
Aeonsemi Closes Series B Investment Round
Santa Clara, CA, May 3, 2021 – Aeonsemi, a leading provider of mixed-signal communications ICs, has completed its Series B investment round with a $25M investment led by IDG Capital and co-led by Susquehanna International Group (SIG). The round was oversubscribed with additional investors including Sequoia Capital and existing investor Walden International.
Aeonsemi will use the newly injected capital to ramp up the production of its Arcadium™ silicon oscillators, and accelerate the development of its ChronoPHY™ technology to enter into Broadband Access and In-vehicle Networking markets.
Driven in large part by global pandemic, the broadly adopted Work-From-Home (WFH) model has fueled a multi-year cycle of enterprise and business network infrastructure upgrades. Emerging applications such as real-time collaboration, immersive reality and augmented reality have raised the bar of network synchronization, latency, and reliability.
“Aeonsemi™ is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the trend with its ChronoPHY™ technology which is architected from ground up to address the challenges to modernize the network.” said Yunteng Huang, CEO of Aeonsemi. “We are extremely excited and grateful to have received the strong endorsement from IDG, SIG and Sequoia Capital. We look forward to releasing our products in the near future to revolutionize the data network at homes, enterprises and in the cars.”
中国南京和美国硅谷，2020年10月19日 – 数模混合信号通信芯片领域的创新企业益昂半导体（Aeonsemi，以下简称益昂）今日宣布推出其Arcadium™系列高性能全硅可编程振荡器。该产品系列实现了在超宽工业温度范围内频率稳定度优于±50 ppm，能产生10 kHz至350 MHz之间任意频率且相位抖动性能达到350 fs rms的时钟信号。Arcadium™振荡器是一款适用于服务器、AI处理器、网络接口、边缘计算、汽车电子以及广泛工业应用的理想时钟源。
据市场咨询机构联合市场研究（Allied Market Research）预测，全球振荡器市场规模在2022年将达到32亿美元。边缘计算及汽车电子应用的趋势表明，高可靠性和低成本振荡器的需求正在不断增长。当前的振荡器市场主要是由具有百年历史但有多方面技术局限的石英振荡器所垄断。Arcadium™振荡器是基于纯CMOS工艺，利用自主创新的先进电路和补偿算法来实现高性能的相位稳定性和频率稳定性，同时相比基于石英的同类产品可提供更高的可靠性。石英晶振需要的真空陶瓷封装基座一直以来被日系企业垄断，而Arcadium™振荡器只需要普通的塑封工艺，从而大大提高了供应链的灵活性和安全性。此外，高度灵活的频率和输出配置可以使客户大幅简化单元器件库并通过设计归一化显著提高产品研发效率。
为适用于各种应用场景，Arcadium™系列有三种型号可供选择：1）AS5001——单频点振荡器；2）AS5002——多频点多配置振荡器，可通过控制引脚的方式从多达九组预烧录的配置中选择所需的输出频率及格式；3）AS5003——可编程频率振荡器，提供I2C接口灵活配置输出频率及格式并支持DCO模式。所有产品均支持LVDS、LVPECL、HCSL、CML、CMOS和双路CMOS等输出格式，并提供与3.2 x 2.5 mm和5.0 x 3.2 mm振荡器行业标准封装兼容的6引脚封装。
