After a round-trip in the US in September to meet all the directors of the board at Silicon Labs I have now signed up for the task and participated at the first board meeting in Austin, Texas.
After more then 20 years in the semiconductor industry and nearly 18 years at Atmel building the AVR product line and serving as CMO for the last years it feels good to be able to use all my experience on new challenges. With the recent acquisition of Energy Micro this becomes even a better fit for both Silicon Labs and me. It is interesting to see how a big American company really values the semiconductor competence what we have built here in Norway. I will get back with another article about this soon.
To be a member of this BOD will also expand my network into other technology companies, investors and business angels. As CEO of Novelda this becomes very useful as we are building Novelda to be a real solutions-provider of smart-sensors for proximity and presence based on our proprietary Ultra-Wide-Band radar chips. To expand my network was also one of my goals when I went to work in California a few years back.
This was more an update from side. I will get back with some more valuable articles soon.
Thanks for reading
