CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Luxtera Inc., a leading innovator in CMOS photonics, today announced that Lanny Ross has joined its Board of Directors. Ross brings with him an extraordinary amount of experience in the communications industry, most recently as President and CEO of Broadcom Corporation, where he continues to serve as a member of its board of directors. Ross joins the company as it prepares for the launch of the industry's first commercial single chip CMOS photonics transceivers.

Ross has more than 25 years of experience leading semiconductor companies through various stages of growth. Before joining Broadcom, he served as the President of Rockwell International's Telecommunications Group. Under Ross's leadership, Rockwell's semiconductor revenue grew from $140 million to more than $1 billion, and Rockwell became the worldwide leader in voice-band modems. He also held executive positions at National Semiconductor and Fairchild Semiconductor.

"Lanny's arrival couldn't come at a better time. Just last month we announced the sampling of our high-performance 10 Gbps transceiver technology that integrates laser light sources and CMOS logic into a single chip solution," said Alex Dickinson, co-founder, president and CEO of Luxtera. "We are the first company to make this technology a reality, and Lanny's extraordinary skill set will be invaluable as we undergo rapid growth."
