Anadigics’ board gains retired senior VP of TI’s wireless terminals unit

Anadigics Inc of Warren, NJ, USA, which manufactures GaAs-based wireless and broadband communications components and modules, has appointed Gilles Delfassy, the retired senior VP of Texas Instruments Inc’s worldwide wireless terminals business unit, to its board of directors.

An industry-respected veteran with over 28 years of experience in global business development and wireless technology, Delfassy had been at the helm of Texas Instrument’s wireless terminals business unit since its inception in 1995, growing it into a multi-billion dollar operation.

“Gilles has been a champion of mobile communications worldwide for several decades and brings a wealth of sophisticated business acumen and technical wireless expertise to our next generation of enabling semiconductor technology,” says Anadigics’ president & CEO Bami Bastani. He adds that Delfassy should be invaluable in helping to shape the future of Anadigics as it continues to grow and expand in the wireless market and explore new, yet untapped applications for its broadband wireless and wireline communication technology.

“As the industry addresses the ever-increasing complexities of next-generation wireless networks, Anadigics’ leading-edge technology will continue to morph and evolve to meet the future needs of our wireless and broadband customers in 3G, 4G and beyond,” says Delfassy.

Anadigics’ board now consists of chairman Ronald Rosenzweig, Bastani, Paul Bachow (senior managing director, Bachow & Associates Inc), David Fellows (executive VP of Comcast Cable, Comcast Corp), Harry Rein (general partner, Foundation Medical Partners), Lewis Solomon (co-founder and CEO, Broadband Services Inc), and Dennis Strigl (president and chief operating officer, Verizon Communications Inc).
