Fari Assad-Eraghi is Senior Vice President and CTO of NXP, IoT and Security. Among other roles, he and his team are responsible for delivery of security IP to the entire company. Prior to joining NXP in 2016, he was Vice President of Advanced Technology at InvenSense. There, he was tasked with expanding the company’s product portfolio beyond inertial sensors to MEMS-based audio solutions, ultrasonic fingerprint sensors, and environmental and health sensors. Fari’s interests span semiconductor devices, transducers, mixed signal and RF design, low-power and high performance digital design, and security.

Fari earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from UC Berkeley in 1992 and 1994,
respectively. From 1995 to 2001 he was with IBM TJ Watson Research Center, where he contributed to the development of the first commercial version of CMOS SOI for VLSI. This technology became the workhorse for IBM’s microprocessors and was used in Apple’s processors, as well as Sony Playstation-3 Cell Processor. Later in his career, he led the adoption of CMOS-based RF solutions for Bluetooth products (at SiliconWave), and high-speed data communication circuits and systems, including the Terabyte/sec signaling initiative (at Rambus). As Senior VP of Engineering and Operations at SiTime, he led the first development and commercialization of MEMS-based timing products. During his tenure, company’s shipments grew to over 50 million units/year. Dr. Assaderaghi’s quest has been identifying nascent technologies and paving their way to broad market adoption. He has contributed to more than 100 technical papers, and has attained over 60 patents.
