Anokiwave Inc of San Diego, CA, USA – which provides highly integrated silicon core chips and III-V front-end integrated circuits for millimeter-wave (mmW) markets and active antenna-based solutions – has appointed Alastair Upton as senior VP of business development, based at the firm’s office in Billerica, MA, and leading its strategic accounts, managing partnership programs, and providing telecoms expertise. Anokiwave says that the appointment comes at a strategic time with opportunities for continued growth in the rapidly developing mmW 5G, SATCOM and aerospace & defense (A&D) markets.

Upton has 38 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, covering both defense electronics and high-volume commercial applications at companies such as GE Aerospace, Lockheed Martin, RF Micro Devices (now Qorvo), MACOM and IDT.

Prior to joining Anokiwave in June, Upton served in leadership roles including senior director of RF product marketing, VP of engineering, Carrier Networks business unit director, and general manager of the Digital Cellular product line. Anokiwave reckons that his global experience across several generations of technology and networks gives him a uniquely comprehensive perspective on the telecoms and other RF markets.

“Alastair is a seasoned executive in the telecommunications industry and is already taking Anokiwave to higher levels of mmW market leadership by leading the O-RAN Alliance efforts and by providing new thought leadership in our 5G market strategy,” says chief operating officer Carl Frank. “Alastair’s leadership, along with his vast industry knowledge and depth of experience, is the perfect mix of expertise that will be beneficial to the continued growth and success of Anokiwave,” he believes.

Upton has an MS Executive Engineering Degree from the University of Pennsylvania and a B.Sc. Electronic and Electrical Engineering from the University of Leeds, UK.
