Prashant gained his bachelor’s in electrical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay, followed by his master’s from North Carolina State University. After working in the semiconductor industry for IDT for nearly 15 years, the company was acquired by Synaptics—along with Prashant and his team—and he’s been enjoying the refreshing culture ever since.
A typical day for Prashant involves a lot of meetings. Focused on developing Synaptics’ Asian market, Prashant spends his time reviewing the status of projects, creating plans and roadmaps for the near-term and long-term, and coordinating closely with Synaptics’ teams across Asia to ensure the successful delivery of chips to meet customer requirements.
“There’s a lot of transparency in the management, and it’s a very open, inviting culture that I find very refreshing.”
“Synaptics is at a very exciting space in the market because human-interface is expected to change drastically over the next 10 years. If you’re looking for a semiconductor company that can participate in that space, it’s Synaptics. This is where the action’s going to be.”
