Silicon Labs Names GM

Austin-based mixed-signal integrated circuit manufacturer Silicon Laboratories reported today that it has hired James Stansberry as general manager for broadcast audio products. Stansberry, the Austin-based firm said, replaces Mark Thompson, who was promoted to vice president and general manager of MCU products earlier this year. Silicon Labs said Stansberry hails from Sony, where he served as general manager of the electronics giant's Network Access group. He had also held general manager positions within Sony's U.S. semiconductor business and corporate development group. Prior to Sony, Stansberry held business management and engineering positions at Motorola.
