Dr. Palaksha Setty, VP of Engineering

Palaksha Setty is the founder of Mobility Semiconductor and has nearly 20 years of hands-on analog IC design and engineering experience. From 1992 to 1994, as a design engineer at Crystal Semiconductor (now part of Cirrus Logic), he pioneered the use of parasitic metal-metal capacitors in self-calibrated, charge-redistribution Analog-to-Digital Converters. From 1994 to 1998, as a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T/Lucent Bell Labs, he invented re-configurable high-speed ADCs and designed circuits for HDD read-channels that were shipped in very high volume. From 1998 to 2000, he served as a consultant to Infineon, where he played a key role in helping Infineon develop its first ever CMOS HDD read-channel. At Mobility, he has successfully directed and executed many analog intensive projects. Dr. Setty has been granted many patents in the area of analog IC design and has presented papers at prestigious IEEE conferences such as the ISSCC. He has also served as Treasurer, Vice-Chair, and Chair of the local IEEE Solid-State Circuits chapter. Palaksha Setty holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University.

Randy Heineke, Director of Physical Design

Randy's recent experience is in setting physical design flow and hand-on layout for analog, RF and 10 GHz I/Os in 32nm and 45nm IBM CMOS processes. He is well versed in SiGe and GaAs back-end design flows as well. Randy has 18 years experience in circuits, devices,and layout for military, medical, commercial and consumer chips. He has held various technical positions with leading companies including IBM and Guidant. He has been named an inventor or co-inventor in eleven US and Foreign patents related to storage devices and IC design. Randy has an MS in EE from University of Minnesota.

Hentry Jebasingam comes with more than 19 yrs of experience in Marketing, Sales and Business Development in the semiconductor field. Before Mobility, he worked for 8 yrs at Siemens and its spin-offs Infineon and Qimonda in the memory segments establishing the company with large OEMS. He played a key role in transforming Qimonda as a innovative Graphics IC design center and supplier. Prior to Siemens, he worked for Dow Corning for 3 years in Singapore and Malaysia as a Market Analyst. And, before Dow Corning, he worked for Samsung NA and IDT Inc., where was he was responsible for new product introductions like LCDs, Data-converters and various multiport memories. Hentry received his BSEE and MSEE from the University of Arkansas.

Dr. H. Ravindra, Adviser to Mobility

Dr. Ravindra advises MobilitySemi on technology, industry trends, and strategic directions. Dr. Ravindra is a founder of Cirrus Logic (NDAQ:CRUS) and a pioneer of the Fabless Semiconductor business model. While at Cirrus Logic, he held various executive positions and was responsible for setting technology direction, making strategic acquisitions, and integrating & directing geographically distant teams. After retiring from Cirrus Logic in 2005, he took a leadership co-founding role in transforming SliceX, then a mixed-signal IP and Services company, into a a Venture Capital backed High Performance Analog Product start-up. As Exec. VP of R&D and Engineering at Slicex, he was instrumental in setting technology and business direction, obtaining series A funding, recruiting a CEO highly experienced in Analog Products business, and obtaining series B funding. Dr. Ravindra has a PhD in Computer Science from University of Utah and has broad knowledge base covering computer science, digital signal processing, VLSI, and Analog IC design.
