Astera Labs

Astera Labs strives to be a trusted partner for distributing data in intelligent systems. Astera develops purpose-built connectivity solutions that remove performance bottlenecks in compute-intensive workloads, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Our Thesis

The explosion of data and rapid growth in specialized workloads — like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning — have given rise to heterogeneous computing and composable disaggregation topologies. Astera Labs’ solutions are purpose-built to tackle bandwidth, capacity, and performance bottlenecks in data-centric systems. Their system-aware semiconductor products, boards, and services enable robust CXL™ 1.1/2.0, PCIe® 4.0/5.0, and 100G/Lane Ethernet connectivity, providing both deep diagnostics and fleet management capabilities to system designers and cloud service providers.
