“Silego has created a new class of ICs that we believe provides our customers with tremendous value in an area that has previously only been served by discrete component implementations,” says Teegen. “In addition to our initial markets of notebook computers and tablets, our CMIC platform is gaining momentum in mobile and wearables markets where design flexibility, time-to-market, lower power and smaller board space are critical. I’m extremely honored to lead Silego and help to expand its innovative product line into the future.”
Teegen has more than 30 years of experience in the semiconductor industry. Before joining Silego, Teegen held executive management positions at Kovio Inc., NeoPhotonics Corporation, MMC Networks Inc. (AMCC), Intellon Corporation (QCOM), VLSI Technology, Inc. (NXP) and Advanced Micro Devices, where he began his career. He was the VP of Sales at MMC Networks during its 1997 IPO and VP of Business Development during its acquisition by AMCC in 2000. Teegen was VP of Sales Intellon and NeoPhotonics prior to their respective IPOs. He earned his bachelors of science degree in electrical engineering (B.S.E.E.) from the University of Florida where he is also an ECE External Advisory Board member.
