March 4, 2024

Led By CTO Jim Aralis, Initial Members Include Semiconductor Engineering Veterans

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 4, 2024-- Mobix Labs Inc. (Nasdaq: MOBX), a fabless semiconductor company developing disruptive next-generation connectivity technologies for 5G infrastructure, satellite communications and defense industries, today announced the creation of a technical advisory board that will play a key role in assessing existing and new technologies, corporate strategy and potential acquisitions.

Led by Jim Aralis, the company’s chief technology officer, inaugural board members include Greg Winner, VP of product development and GM for cellular infrastructure at InnoPhase Inc., a fabless semiconductor company; Jay Standiford, a long-time engineering executive and consultant; and Frank Thiel, Founder of Kolvenier Solutions, a business and technology consulting company.

“I came to Mobix Labs because I believe in the company’s disruptive value proposition, product road map and seasoned management team,” said Aralis. “Greg, Jay, and Frank bring enormous talent and expertise to Mobix Labs that significantly expand our organizational depth, as we continue to introduce new technology solutions to customers across the globe.”

Aralis, who joined Mobix Labs in May 2022 as CTO, held the same role for more than a decade at Microsemi Corp., as well as serving as senior vice president of advanced development, until the Aliso Viejo-based chipmaker was acquired in 2018 for $10.3 billion.

“The creation of our technical advisory board marks another stepping stone for Mobix Labs that will advance our IP and patent portfolio globally,” said Fabian Battaglia, CEO of Mobix Labs. “Jim is a tech visionary. He and the board will be an invaluable resource for management and our board of directors, as we get ready for the next exciting chapter of our company’s evolution.”

Winner has more than 30 years of semiconductor experience with an emphasis on product development and operations, systems and solutions, mobile and embedded applications. Prior to InnoPhase, he served as president and CEO for GainSpan, an embedded Wi-Fi company, which was acquired by Telit, an IoT wireless solutions provider, where he served as head of global business development. Winner earned a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University and a bachelor’s degree also in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Standiford, a tech industry veteran with deep experience in semiconductor design and embedded systems, has served in executive engineering positions at Indyme Solutions, Oxford Semiconductor (Formerly TransDimension), Conexant Systems and Texas Instruments. During his career, he oversaw all aspects of new product development, from design and development through manufacturing in areas such as complex analog, mixed-signal, SOCs and ASICs. Standiford received a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Colorado.

Thiel is a technologically-grounded business leader specializing in partnering with seed stage startup companies. With over 30 years in the semiconductor industry, he has a demonstrated history of creating innovative products and a proven ability to maximize profitability. Prior to Kolvenier Solutions, he was the VP and General Manager for Microsemi’s Mixed Signal & RF IC businesses, where he drove the strategies that more than doubled the revenue of that $130M+ division with industry leading products such as ultra-low power radios for implantable medical and IoT, high-reliability precision sensors, RF Wi-Fi edge devices and more. Thiel previously served as the VP of Engineering at Zarlink Semiconductor and helped manage the company through its ultimate acquisition by Microsemi. He is a published author and inventor with 19 U.S. patents. Thiel received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a master’s degree in music theory and composition from the University of Texas.
