New VP: Eric Dewannain - VP/GM Baseband Business Unit

A very important addition to our Tensilica family, Eric has extensive experience at TI and Intel. "Because of our solid DPU foundation and success in baseband signal processing, we've been able to ramp up quickly and add top engineering talent to our team," stated Jack Guedj, Tensilica's president and CEO. "Now, with Eric, we're reaching critical mass with strong leadership to help us continue our growth trajectory."

"It's exciting to join an aggressive company that's rapidly becoming the architecture of choice for programmable baseband signal processing," Dewannain stated. "The amazing thing is how fast we can develop new products and provide optimized solutions for the mobile wireless market using the same Xtensa DPU foundation and tools we license to our customers. Leveraging this strong Xtensa DPU foundation, Tensilica has been able to develop a comprehensive IP (intellectual property) suite tailored for LTE and introduce two generations of ConnX BBE baseband DSPs in less than two years. Any other IP vendor would take several years to develop these products."
