Astera Labs Wins 2023 Data Breakthrough Award for Semiconductor Product of the Year

The explosion of data and the rise of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning has driven unprecedented demand for advanced technologies and products for new heterogeneous computing architectures. The Data Breakthrough Awards were established to recognize the best and most innovative companies, products, and services in this new age of digital data.

We are excited to announce that our Leo Memory Connectivity Platform has been named the Semiconductor Product of the Year in the Hardware Category by the independent Breakthrough Award committee.

Leo is the industry’s first and only solution that enables Compute Express Link™ (CXL™) memory expansion, pooling and sharing. With actual silicon running in production planned customer platforms, Leo has enabled heterogeneous computing infrastructure that can expand and share memory resources to enable greater efficiencies and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in today’s data centers.

“At Astera Labs, we have a deep focus on customer-driven product definition and innovation, and Leo is a testament to the ingenuity and hard work of our team,” said Ahmad Danesh, Associate Vice President, Product Management, Astera Labs. “We are honored to receive this award and thank the Data Breakthrough Award committee for its recognition of our Leo Memory Connectivity Platform as a truly innovative solution that is enabling data-centric systems.”
