Mr. Stansberry replaces Mark Thompson, who was promoted to vice president and general manager of MCU products earlier this year. He joins Silicon Labs from Sony where he most recently served as general manager of its Network Access Group responsible for developing next generation satellite, cable and IP consumer electronics products.

Prior to joining Sony, Mr. Stansberry held business management and engineering positions with Motorola’s semiconductor product sector (now Freescale) in several product groups that were focused on the consumer and game console markets. His business development teams were responsible for major design wins at set-top box, game console and consumer electronics manufacturers.

“Our broadcast audio business has a track record of double-digit year on year growth rates. It leverages the best of our core technology, and it is, therefore, a very strategic business with tremendous potential,” said Tyson Tuttle, vice president of Silicon Labs’ broadcast products. “I feel confident that James’s technical background, business leadership and experience in the fast-paced consumer market place will help us build upon our early success.”
