As our Tegra mobile processor becomes increasingly important across our businesses, we're taking steps to ensure that it's supported by the most efficient organizational structure.
We announced today that Deepu Talla will head the Tegra business unit. He succeeds Phil Carmack, who after 10 years building Tegra from scratch to a three-quarters of a billion dollar business, is leaving NVIDIA to become CEO of one of our partner companies.
Prior to joining NVIDIA earlier this year as VP of Tegra business development, Deepu spent more than 10 years at Texas Instruments, most recently as GM of its OMAP mobile computing business.
At the same time, we announced that we're combining Tegra's design team into our larger, engineering structure, which will be now fully centralized across the company.
This new org structure reflects the central importance of Tegra ' not only in our mobile strategy, but increasingly in PCs, gaming, auto and beyond.
