Alpha Data

Our Story

Alpha Data was founded in 1993 in Edinburgh. While the headquarters remain in Scotland’s capital, Alpha Data now serves customers worldwide from offices in both the US and the UK. 

Alpha Data was established to provide state-of-the-art solutions for computer intensive applications, and the company’s team of highly skilled engineers provide international customers with high-reliability, leading-edge products based on the latest devices from AMD.

Alpha Data’s partnership with AMD (formerly Xilinx) gives our customers access to the latest advances in silicon engineering, and Alpha Data provides the hardware, software and expertise to ensure rapid time to market.

With over thirty years of technical heritage and a broad experience of providing hardware to aerospace primes, Alpha Data are now building on their technical expertise to manufacture ruggedized, radiation-resilient components for the growing NewSpace market.

Our products are interoperable with industry standards such as VPX, XMC and PCI Express® along with popular operating systems such as Microsoft Windows™, Linux and VxWorks.

Alpha Data have offices in
Edinburgh, UK and Colorado, USA

Our Mission

We believe that the world needs adaptable and customised solutions, and our mission is to design and develop the very best in reconfigurable computing.

Our guiding purpose is to develop products that we would choose to use ourselves, and we bring this philosophy to all the markets we serve. 

From embedded systems and signal processing to spaceflight or high-performance computing, our products are world-leading in terms of performance, flexibility, and scalability.


Agile and Flexible

Alpha Data excels at modifying commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components to meet customer requirements — allowing us to quickly provide tailored products at a fraction of the cost or risk of a full custom solution.

Our highly skilled engineers are master practitioners of their craft, specializing in rapidly creating flexible solutions for customer requirements.


Customer Focused

Our company ethos —to supply products we would choose ourselves— applies to everything we do, including customer service. Alpha Data offers consultancy, support, co-development and training to help our customers get the most from our products.

Our engineers provide design support and technical advice across the full lifecycle of our products, supporting our customers from initial enquiry to product end-of-life.


Technology Leaders

Alpha Data’s partnership with AMD gives us access to advances in silicon engineering at the leading edge of what is technologically possible.

When our clients deploy their product to market, they can be confident that they are using the most up-to-date technology available.
