About SiBEAM

Building on four years of academic research, SiBEAM was founded in December 2004 by a core team from the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) and several wireless and high-speed communications industry veterans, including Dr. Bob Brodersen, Chinh Doan, Sohrab Emami, Dr. Gary Baldwin, Dr. C. Bernard Shung, Dr. Tim A. Williams and John Marshall. nnWith research efforts starting in August 2001, the BWRC core team of Dr. Brodersen, Dr. Baldwin, Doan, and Emami set out to test the limits of what would be achievable in standard process CMOS. In December 2002, the team achieved several breakthroughs in modeling higher frequencies in CMOS, resulting in the successful delivery of seven test chips between 2002 and 2004. In June 2004, the core team decided to start a company enabling very high-speed wireless applications at higher frequencies. With an initial vision in place, the development team added Dr. C. Bernard Shung with his multi-gigabit communications experience. To lead and launch the company, the team added the leadership of Dr. Tim Williams, bringing his experience starting up and accelerating wireless companies. And to develop its product and business strategy, the team added John Marshall. With the founding team in place, a new vision was developed leading to a technology, frequency and application focus. (nnIn December 2004, SiBEAM was formally founded and secured seed financing of $1.25M from New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and US Venture Partners (USVP). Just four months later, SiBEAM had validated its vision and garnered the interest of electronics, computer, and handset manufacturers as well as data, voice and video service providers in Asia and North America. In May 2005, SiBEAM raised $15M in equity investment from NEA, USVP and Foundation Capital to develop its first wireless platform. nnIn April 2006, industry veteran, John LeMoncheck joined as President and CEO. LeMoncheck's arrival advances SIBEAM's strategy, growth plan and future unveiling of technology set to transform the wireless landscape. In August 2006, SiBEAM raised $21M in equity investment from the original three venture capital firms. Initially based in Fremont, California, SiBEAM now maintains US offices in Sunnyvale and San Diego, California.n
