The world's largest supply platform for sources of shortages and hard-to-find parts
Supplier Introduction

In January 2012, Xelerated was acquired by Marvell Technology Group for an undisclosed sum.

Xelerated Inc., founded in 2000, was a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ASSP-based Carrier Ethernet chipsets. Xelerated carried a line of programmable Network Processing Units (NPUs) and Ethernet network switches for the Metro Ethernet, access network and high-end enterprise markets.


Xelerated's design relies upon a patented dataflow architecture. Like an ASIC, it is optimized in relation to the flow of packets instead of the flow of instructions through a RISC core. As a result, processing speed is predictable rather than variable. Because Xelerated's NPUs and Ethernet switches were programmable, carriers could reprogram them to adapt to new standards as they develop

The company had offices in Santa Clara, California, Stockholm, Tel Aviv and Beijing.
