NexGen Appoints industry veteran Guruswamy Ganesh

News

Former SVP of product development at Western Digital to lead global systems engineering

NexGen Power Systems, a US-based developer of power electronics and conversion systems using patented Vertical GaN technologies, has appointed industry veteran, Ganesh Guruswamy, as chief systems officer.

Guruswamy will oversee NexGen's Global Systems Engineering group, with established engineering facilities located in Santa Clara, California and Syracuse, N.Y., and a Center of R&D Excellence in Bangalore, India.

The Bangalore R&D Center brings together experts in power electronics, mechanical design, software, testing and board layout. Guruswamy joins NexGen from Western Digital, where he served for six years as SVP for Product Development.

He brings more than thirty years of senior semiconductor engineering experience, with earlier roles at both AMD and Freescale. Guruswamy expects to accelerate NexGen's already fast growth in Bangalore, where he previously helped to expand Western Digital's significant engineering presence.

"Ganesh's extensive experience in leading engineering teams, and a proven track record of scaling and driving technology excellence, especially in India, makes him an ideal fit as Chief Systems Officer," said Dinesh Ramanathan, NexGen's co-founder and Co-CEO. "We look forward to working together to scale NexGen Systems worldwide, as we move closer toward commercial availability of our revolutionary Vertical GaN products."

"NexGen Power Systems is enabling the future of power electronics by building a complete state-of-the-art system leveraging patented Vertical GaN technologies," added Ganesh. "The NexGen R&D team in Bangalore has helped to develop the world's most efficient power systems, switching at 1+MHz, and making the systems 60 percent smaller and 50 percent lighter than comparable electronics. This is only the beginning as we introduce game-changing innovation across multiple consumer and industrial applications."

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
