Semiconductor Industry Sales Veteran Joins Semitech Semiconductor

Stewart Gebbie to Lead European Sales for Semitech

Singapore, December 27, 2010 - Semitech Semiconductor, a provider of power line communications solutions that enable the transformation of the electricity grid into a smart grid, today announced that Stewart Gebbie, recent director of third party business relationships at ST Microelectronics and former vice president of sales for Conexant, has joined Semitech Semiconductor as European sales director.

Gebbie brings in-depth experience and knowledge of the European market to his new position with Semitech. He has helped to successfully grow business in the telecom/datacom, industrial, military, and communications markets through developing and managing sales and applications teams at companies including Crystal Semiconductor, Brooktree, Conexant, and Mindspeed Technologies.

"Stewart brings a wealth of connectivity knowledge, sales management and business relations to Semitech," noted Mike Holt, vice president of marketing and sales for Semitech. "Stewart's proven track record in establishing and growing European semiconductor sales will allow us to respond to growing demand for Semitech products from European customers. This is especially important given both the market acceptance of Semitech's PLC solutions and the significant market growth for smart grid communications in Europe. We are excited to have Stewart as a part of the Semitech team."

"Power line communications are critical to smart grid deployment and the smart management of the world's energy and water resources," said Gebbie. "Semitech's products communicate over noisy power lines where others can't. I look forward to leading Semitech's efforts to grow this capability in the European market." Semitech Semiconductor has recently announced its SM2200 and SM2101 power line communications transceivers. These devices provide the industry's most robust, reliable power line communications.
