SiFive Appoints Naveed Sherwani as CEO

SAN FRANCISCO – August 15, 2017 – SiFive, the first fabless provider of customized, open-source-enabled semiconductors, today announced that industry veteran Naveed Sherwani has joined the company as CEO to lead it through its next phase of growth. Stefan Dyckerhoff, who had held the top spot at the company since its inception, will remain a member of the SiFive board of directors. “Naveed brings a lifetime of experience not only in the semiconductor and open source sectors, but also in growing successful startups into industry leaders,” Dyckerhoff said. “SiFive has achieved significant industry milestones since its founding, and we continue to drive innovations that are leveling the playing field for those priced out of the traditional silicon market. We are excited to have Naveed join the team, and look forward to further growth under his leadership.” Sherwani joins SiFive with more than 25 years of experience in the industry at companies including Intel, Brite Semiconductor and Open Silicon. Over the course of his career, Sherwani has been involved in the development of more than 300 chips, and, through his work as founder and CEO of Open Silicon, was instrumental in leading the development of ASIC technologies, which offered lower cost alternatives to traditional, less reliable legacy offerings.[…]
