SAN DIEGO, Aug. 27, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Entropic Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced the appointment of Vahid Manian as senior vice president of Global Operations, effective immediately. Manian will lead Entropic's technical and supply management operations, worldwide. He will be based out of Entropic's San Diego, Calif. headquarters, and will report directly to Patrick Henry, Entropic's president and CEO.

A seasoned semiconductor executive with more than 25-years of proven operations, business and technology experience, Manian will be responsible for manufacturing operations, product and test engineering, corporate quality and strategic operations outsourcing.

"Vahid's operations and technical expertise will ensure Entropic continues the advancement of our operations strategies to scale with the global growth of our organization," said Patrick Henry, president and CEO, Entropic Communications. "Entropic will greatly benefit from Vahid's ability to align a global strategy with customer needs and corporate quality from providing cost reduction and long range capacity planning to the timely delivery associated with new technology and product platform introductions."

Manian brings to Entropic an exceptional track record for driving results in product quality and cost reduction. Prior to Entropic, he was responsible for all operations activity at Telegent Systems, a leading supplier of silicon solutions for mobile TV application, later acquired by Spreadtrum Communication, a Shanghai-based semiconductor company. During his tenure with Telegent, Manian instituted stringent cost reduction programs, which resulted in lowering product costs by more than 25-percent in less than six months. Before Telegent, Manian served as senior vice president of global manufacturing operations at Broadcom Corporation, where he oversaw the Company's operations and manufacturing activities including foundry operations and process technology direction. Manian joined Broadcom in January 1996, and established the operations strategy, which helped grow the Company from a start-up to a multi-billion dollar organization leveraging best-in-class delivery and inventory management systems.
