Aquantia Corporation is a manufacturer of high-speed transceivers. In 2004, Aquantia was founded and first made products for Data Center connectivity, and in 2012 developed the world's first integrated 10GBASE-T MAC/PHY for servers. In 2014, Aquantia introduced a new Ethernet technology into the Enterprise Infrastructure market and was joined by Cisco and others in co-founding the NBASE-T Alliance. Their Multi-Gig technology served as the baseline for the 802.3bz standard that was ratified by the IEEE in September 2016. This standard is now the basis for all new Multi-Gig implementations on Cat 5e and Cat 6 cabling in the Enterprise, SMB and SoHo environments.

In 2016 Aquantia introduced the first 100G technology, QuantumStream.

It was a privately held company which had raised $178.9 million over eight rounds of funding as of mid-2015.[1] It won Company of the Year at the 2014 annual Creativity in Electronics awards,[2] and was ranked by Deloitte Fast 500 as the fastest-growing semiconductor company in North America in 2014,[3] 2015, and 2016. In 2016, Aquantia was named a finalist in UBM Tech’s EE Times and EDN Annual Creativity in Electronics (ACE) Awards for “Company of the Year".[4]

The company was acquired by Marvell Technology Group on September 19, 2019.
