Published by the Darnell Group, PowerPulse is a leading power electronics publication with a substantial global readership. According to coverage on PowerPulse.Net about compiling the top ten list, the editorial staff at PowerPulse "scoured the global power electronics industry, looking for up-and-coming companies" to include. Akros was chosen, in part, for securing additional financing in November 2012, adding to previously raised capital and bringing the total to $11M. Another factor that figured into the decision was the announcement in November of an interoperability collaboration with Broadcom Corporation to support the emerging PoE (Power over Ethernet) 60-Watt extension.

PowerPulse Publisher Jeffrey D. Shepard stated, "Akros Silicon has made significant and consistent strides in the power electronics industry with its innovative technologies and its ability to bring them to market. We applaud their success in helping to reshape the power management arena with their innovative approach to managing energy."

Parviz Ghaffaripour, Akros Silicon's President & Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are delighted to be included in PowerPulse's list of companies to watch in 2013. It is a testament that our efforts are being recognized by the industry." He added, "Akros has established the foundation for Total Energy Management (TEM) through the combination of our innovative GreenEdge™ digital isolation and Energy$ense™ real-time power monitoring technologies. Our recently announced interoperability collaboration with Broadcom places us at the forefront of 60W/90W PoE implementation. We expect to continue to expand our operations as market-leading companies continue to adopt our unique approach to TEM."
