Summit Taps Design VP.
Semiconductor industry veteran Ted Myers has been named vice president of Design for local manufacturer Summit Microelectronics.
The position is new.
Myers, who has some twenty years of semiconductor industry design experience, is a member of the founding group of Summit.
Prior to Summit's founding, Myers was a design manager for National Semiconductor and Fairchild Semiconductor. Before that he spent 14 years with Xicor as a design and operations manager.
"Myers has managed to move our first dozen products from conception into production at a blazing pace enabling us to bring these devices to market months ahead of schedule," explained Summit CEO Richard Orlando.
Myers holds bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering and psychology. He is married, the father of two and lives in Los Altos.
Summit Microelectronics designs, develops, and manufactures programmable analog integrated circuits for the manufacturers of telecommunications and data communications switching equipment.
The company uses an electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM) process that allows customer programmability for trim and calibration functions. Many of the circuits in the company's portfolio offer extra EEPROM cells that can be used for any system memory function.
Currently, the company produces circuits for hot swap control, microprocessor supervision and reset control, in-circuit trim and calibration and environmental monitoring.
