Winds of change blew through the executive corridors at Inphi Corporation as Lawrence Tse and Chris Haywood climbed up the corporate ladder while Dr. Gopal Raghavan, co-founder and current CTO relinquished office.
Tse, who joined Inphi in June 2010 as the vice president of engineering for “New Business Initiatives,” took over as CTO from Raghavan, who resigned after spending 10 years with the company, while Haywood assumed the role of vice president and chief architect of the “Computing and Storage Business” line.
Inphi Corporation, a provider of high-speed analog semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets will benefit from Tse's 25 years of semiconductor design and executive management experience at analog companies such as Marvell (News - Alert) and Voltera.
In fact, it is said that Tse was responsible for building and growing the wireless engineering group at Marvell Semiconductor Inc. His contribution toward the adoption of WiFi (News - Alert) solutions has helped to make it a standard feature in many consumer electronic devices and enterprise infrastructures. In his current role as CTO, he will assume responsibility for the company's strategic technology direction and planning.
Young Sohn, president and CEO of Inphi praised Lawrence's leadership abilities and was confident that with his technical background and broad and proven experience, the company's technology expertise would move forward.
Sohn spoke highly of Gopal's strategic contribution to the business in several key technology areas and said that it had positioned Inphi well for continued growth. He expressed his gratitude and wished him well.
