Silicon Labs, Austin, Texas, announces that it has joined the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA), which represents U.S. leadership in semiconductor manufacturing, design, and research. Silicon Labs joins several other companies that have become SIA members within the last year: Cree, Nvidia, Xilinx, Arm, SK Hynix, and KLA-Tencor.
“Our work to advance policies that will promote growth and innovation in our industry will be greatly strengthened by the addition of Silicon Labs as a member,” says John Neuffer, SIA President and CEO. .
In addition, Silicon Labs President and CEO Tyson Tuttle was elected to the SIA board of directors at the association’s board meeting on Nov. 29. Mr. Tuttle has been instrumental in shaping Silicon Labs’ strategic and technological direction for more than 20 years. After becoming CEO in 2012, he laid the foundation for a cultural shift to serve broad-based markets with a greater emphasis on software and tools, enabling customers to simplify IoT system design. As CEO, he has transformed Silicon Labs into a leading provider of IoT connectivity solutions, with more than half of the company’s revenue stemming from the IoT.
“Smart government policy is critical to the continued strength of the semiconductor industry, the tech sector, and the broader economy,” says Mr. Tuttle. “It is a true pleasure to represent Silicon Labs on the SIA board and to work alongside my colleagues to make meaningful progress on issues of great importance to us all.”
