Akros is committed to advancing the state-of-the-art of digital power and energy management through the creative application of their novel IC architectures and software programmability—addressing their customers’ demand for simpler and cost-effective system designs and faster design cycles.
The Akros team brings together diverse expertise in high-voltage power management, precision analog and high-speed mixed-signal designs, Ethernet and other communication System-on-a-chip (SoC) designs and technologies--with the objective of solving their customers’ problem of developing more power efficient and managed appliances, in a more cost effective manner with short time to market.To do so,Akros takes a unique system-oriented approach to find crucial barriers and bottlenecks impacting system performance and cost, and addresses those with fundamental innovation at the IC level.
For instance, high efficiency managed power is crucial to next-generation, energy-managed PoE (Power over Ethernet) systems, like the VoIP phones, IP Cameras, wireless LAN access points, etc. Also, cost is a major driver for large-scale deployments. To address these, Akros has developed breakthrough and proprietary GreenEdge? 2kV high-voltage digital isolation technology that enables superior DC-DC efficiency and high-performance energy management across isolated power domains. It provides unparalleled integration at Power System-on-a-Chip (Power SoC) level to address all the customers' Power system design needs and cost concerns in a single device. And it’s developed on mass manufacturing standard CMOS process to benefit from the economies of scale of standard CMOS. Akros’ unique architecture combines the benefits of integration with power system performance enhancements along with EMC compliance management for faster time to market for their customers.
