Soraa Hires Todd Antes In Marketing Role
Former Qualcomm executive to drive company's go-to-market activities
GaN-on-GaN LED company Soraa has appointed Todd Antes to the role of senior vice president of marketing.
Most recently, Todd was vice president at Qualcomm, where he was responsible for the strategy, product roadmap and go-to-market activities for the company's Networking, and Connected Home/Office/IoT products.
Prior to Qualcomm, Todd was the vice president of marketing at Atheros Communications, which grew to become the world's largest supplier of Wi-Fi technology and chipsets prior to its acquisition by Qualcomm in 2011.
Additionally, he has held several executive marketing leadership positions at small startups through large, public technology companies-including Philips and AirPrime (acquired by Sierra Wireless).
"Todd brings extensive marketing experience to Soraa and will play a key role in driving the company's next phase of growth into full spectrum, smart and connected lighting," said Jeffrey Parker, CEO of Soraa.
"I'm excited to join Soraa and have the chance to work with such a brilliant team and technologies," said Antes. "I look forward to applying my marketing experiences in IoT and connected products to help the company deliver truly innovative LED lighting to more customers around the world."
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
