The Linley Group Reveals 2019 Analysts’ Choice Awards Winners

Honoring the Best Chips and Technology of the Past Year

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 20, 2020 — The Linley Group today announced the winners of the coveted Analysts' Choice Awards. The annual awards recognize the top semiconductor and processor IP offerings of the year in seven distinct categories: AI accelerators, embedded processors, mobile processors, server or PC processors, processor IP, networking chips, and best technology.

"We reviewed numerous outstanding products and concluded that these technology innovators deserved the recognition in their respective categories. This year, we added a new category to recognize the rapid growth in AI accelerators,” said Linley Gwennap, founder and principal analyst at The Linley Group. “Our awards program not only recognizes excellence in chip design and innovation, but also acknowledges the products that our analysts believe will have an impact on future designs. We extend our congratulations to these deserving winners.”

The Linley Group's analysts selected the winners based on the merits of those that entered production (or, in the case of IP, released to RTL) during 2019. On the basis of their coverage in Microprocessor Report, the analyst team is well-versed in all the leading technology products and evaluated the contenders based on performance, power, features, and cost of each device in the context of their target application.
