AccelerComm was born from the vision Rob Maunder while professor at Southampton University – to found a company around his wireless communications PhD research team. Today we are continuing to grow our center of excellence in the UK which is the base for all our semiconductor IP development work. Every day, our purpose is to deliver innovative, ground-breaking technology that enables cost effective, market leading digital communications that achieve robust, error resilient, ultra-high performance. We want to accelerate the next generations of wireless communications used around the globe. Our channel coding (or Forward Error Correction (FEC)) solutions overcome the effects of noise, interference and poor signal strength that would otherwise limit the speed of wireless communication. We do this by providing thought leadership, working closely with industry bodies, research institutions and customers to ensure the best algorithms are selected and that we develop IP that’s optimal in performance for any given communication system. It’s our vision to become the number one supplier of channel coding, demodulation and channel estimation solutions and we will achieve this by supplying best in class hardware and software technology, measured in terms of throughput, latency and efficiency at the system level.
