SAN JOSE, Calif. -– Scintera Networks, Inc., the leading developer and producer of advanced signal processing silicon-based solutions, has chosen John Monson to lead its marketing efforts and Rene Haas to head up worldwide sales. “Scintera has established a market leadership position with its signal processing IC solutions, and is gaining strong customer traction. We are excited to bring in two 20-year semiconductor market veterans to lead our marketing and sales efforts as we enter our growth phase,” said Abhijit Phanse, president and chief executive officer.

Monson, most recently vice president of marketing at PMC-Sierra’s Microprocessor Product Division, had also been with Lucent Technologies in sales and marketing in its mass storage and wireless product groups. He holds a BSEE from the University of Minnesota and completed post-graduate business coursework at the University of St. Thomas, in Minnesota. “With the broadband revolution expanding to multi-gigabit data rates from 1 to 12Gbps, Scintera’s Gigabit Signal Processor™ solutions provide a paradigm shift in power and performance from classical DSP and equalization approaches. I am looking forward to helping to expand this technology in the marketplace,” stated Monson.

Haas, most recently vice president of North American sales for Tensilica, had earlier worked in sales and applications for NEC and was Director of Strategic Accounts before joining Tensilica. Prior to NEC, he held various engineering positions at Texas Instruments and Xerox Corp. Haas earned a BSEE from Clarkson University, Potsdam, New York. “I’m very excited to be here. Scintera’s Electronic Dispersion Compensation Engine (EDCE™) products are without question the most cost-effective way to push existing 1-gigabit links to 10-gigabit speeds in the enterprise, and to upgrade 2.5-gigabit links to 10-gigabit speeds in the metro,” Haas indicated.
