Wiggans joins team at CamSemi
Ted Wiggans, one of the UK’s most experienced executives in establishing and running international semiconductor supply arrangements, is joining CamSemi to head up the company’s fabless operations. Wiggans, previously operations director at Zetex Semiconductors, joins as CamSemi’s VP of Operations to help ramp up capacity in readiness for the company becoming a volume supplier of breakthrough performance power management ICs.
CamSemi’s first products will allow power supply manufacturers to develop smaller, higher performance and cooler-running products that can beat the most stringent energy-saving guidelines and be manufactured at lower cost than today’s solutions.
Wiggans has over 30 years’ electronics industry experience including 13 years at Zetex Semiconductors and senior-level manufacturing and development roles with Motorola, Philips/DuPont Optical and Philips.
CamSemi was founded to bring to market a new generation of sophisticated power management ICs that help manufacturers more easily meet the world’s increasing demand to save energy but at acceptable cost.Its products are based on its portfolio of patented and proprietary technologies including intelligent control architectures and PowerBraneTM which allows near-ideal performance switching of power devices such as LIGBTs and MOSFETs. These breakthrough approaches can benefit multiple markets, although initial products are targeted at the switch mode power supply and lighting sectors.
CamSemi is backed by a strong investor syndicate led by 3i and including Scottish Equity Partners and TTP Ventures.
