ViaSat Acquires EAI Design for Secure ASIC/FPGA Designs

ViaSat Inc. has the product and technology portfolio of EAI Design Services LLC. in order to expand its capabilities in high-speed, low-power secure space-based ASIC and FPGA microprocessor design.  Financial terms were not disclosed.

EAI Design developed a family of IP cores and stand-alone encryption products for high-speed networking to 100 Gbps that extend boundary protection for data centers and corporate wide area networks. These technologies are implemented in very small, low-power ASICs as well as cost-effective space hardened-by-design ASICs and FPGAs. The staff of EAI Design has joined ViaSat, with founder Emil Isaakian leading the immediate integration of the technologies into ViaSat products, systems, and services.

ViaSat is seeking to deploy 100 Gbps and higher-speed, space-based trusted platforms, particularly for commercial applications.

"In the past couple of years, we've been expanding our cybersecurity portfolio to use the latest networking and cyber sensing technologies, and to support the increasing demand for more bandwidth," said Jerry Goodwin, VP of Secure Network Systems at ViaSat. "We've also been working closely with electric utilities to develop large-scale, distributed cyber sensing architectures to secure the electrical grid and other machine-to-machine projects. These low-power, high-performance security technologies will help us protect data and networks in the evolving internet of everything."

  • In  July 2014, ViaSat acquired a high-rate modem product line and custom spacecraft technologies for earth observation from Gray Labs Inc., a private company based in Georgia. Applications include high-speed intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) data communications. Financial terms were not disclosed. ViaSat plans to continue to support Gray Labs products and customers with state-of-the-art design from its Duluth, Georgia campus. The former staff of Gray Labs has relocated to ViaSat facilities, and Dr. Jim Gray, former Gray Labs president, has assumed a senior consulting position at ViaSat where he will help expand the capabilities of satellite-to-earth communications for ISR.
