Volterra sought to develop high-performance analog and mixed-signal power management semiconductors for the computing, storage, networking and consumer markets. He held many roles at Volterra, most notably responsible for the semiconductor technology roadmap for the company. In this capacity, successful product execution led to >20X cost-performance improvement in all product lines, enabling cumulative revenue to >$1B by 2013. The company went through an IPO in 2004, with eventual acquisition by Maxim Integrated in 2013. He is currently at Maxim Integrated, developing technologies for the datacenter, automotive, industrial and mobile markets, and holds 60 patents. Also, an avid pianist and composer, he plays yearly in Saratoga, CA with a local symphony orchestra. He is also active in the academic community, advising and providing financial assistance to students in engineering and physics.
