SAN JOSE, CA, August 17, 2020 — Movellus today announced that Fred Weber has joined its Board of Advisors. Mr. Weber will help with Movellus’ mission to deliver architectural innovations, initially in the areas of clock generation and distribution, to the high performance SoC, processor, and AI markets.
Fred Weber is well-known for his contributions at AMD, where he served as Chief Technical Officer and Corporate Vice President. During his tenure at AMD, Mr. Weber led the development and delivery of the industry’s first x86-compatible 64-bit processors, the Opteron and the Athlon 64. Mr. Weber has also served as a board director at Lattice Semiconductor, MIPS, NetSpeed (now Intel), and SeaMicro; he is currently an advisor to Samsung and Cerebras Systems. Mr. Weber is also on the Steering Committee of Hot Chips – a symposium on high performance chips.
“The current demand in customized data-centric chips combined with the slowdown of Moore’s law has pushed the industry into an architectural renaissance,” said Mr. Weber. “Today’s performance needs require innovation in the entire architecture stack, from transistors to circuits to systems and software. Movellus is playing a critical role in pushing the performance and efficiency of high-performance chips, and I am especially attracted to what they are doing with their Clock Distribution Network solutions.”
