Kothari brings more than 20 years of technology management experience, most recently serving as head of wireless software product development at Qualcomm Hyderabad.

Silicon Labs established its Hyderabad location with the acquisition of Redpine Signals’ connectivity business in April 2020. The acquisition strengthened Silicon Labs’ position as the leading provider of IoT wireless solutions with the additions of extensive Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth Low Energy businesses, as well as a broad patent portfolio. Silicon Labs’ Hyderabad wireless development center is driving further momentum in the smart home, industrial IoT, and commercial markets for customers who want to get to market quickly with Wi-Fi enabled connected devices.

Silicon Labs’ Hyderabad site headcount has grown approximately 30 per cent since the Redpine Signals acquisition. The company continues to hire hardware and software engineers in Hyderabad, and candidates may review and apply for open positions here.
