More about Akros Silicon
Akros–the Greek word for “edge”–embodies our commitment to bringing leading edge innovations to green power and energy management ICs.
Akros Silicon is a provider of leading edge power management ICs that offer superior efficiency performance and advanced features to facilitate remote and intelligent network-based energy management. Our solutions help manufacturers of electronic equipment create more efficient and advanced products at reduced costs, while enabling end users the ability to reduce energy usage.
Akros’ breakthrough and proprietary GreenEdge(TM) digital isolation technology enables unprecedented integration by eliminating the traditional isolation barrier to create a Power System-on-a-Chip (Power SoC) solution. Each SoC replaces “bag of chips” designs with flexible and efficient platform solutions that shrink the design footprint and lower the bill-of-material costs—all while delivering enhanced end-to-end system capability.
Akros’ solutions are used in a wide-range of equipments that benefit from superior energy efficiency, intelligent power management, network-based energy management and diagnostics, high-voltage/ground loop isolation and EMC protection. These include direct-line or Ethernet-powered (PoE) appliances like VoIP phones, wireless LAN access points, WiMax CPEs, residential gateways, IP and analog surveillance cameras, thin client computers, industrial, automotive and medical equipment.
Akros is committed to advancing the state-of-the-art of digital power and energy management through the creative application of our novel IC architectures and software programmability—addressing our customers’ demand for simpler and cost-effective system designs and faster design cycles.Competitive Advantages
