He founded Peraso Technologies in September 2008, and closed a $10M series A financing for the company in October 2009. Ron was also the founder of Cogency Semiconductor, a fabless semiconductor company focused on the development of modems for use in powerline networking. While at Cogency, Ron sat on the Board of Directors of the HomePlug Alliance, the predominant standard in the powerline networking market. Cogency was sold to Intellon Corporation in 2004, and Mr. Glibbery become President of Intellon at that time.

Dr. Mihai Tazlauanu has over 25 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, including doctorates
in both electrical engineering and semiconductor physics. His main research and development
interests are in device physics and modeling, process reliability and CMOS RF system integration.
Mihai is highly experienced in the mixed-signal usage of advanced technology nodes including CMOS,
BiCMOS and HEMT. In his most recent role at AMD, Dr. Tazlauanu was responsible for guiding the
company's advanced technology strategy, including all aspects of design enablement. Prior to AMD,
Mihai held a variety of roles at AMCC (formerly Quake Technologies), the last of which was primary
responsibility for the reliability and failure analysis. Dr. Tazlauanu is responsible for over 50 papers
and conference contributions, and has written over 250 technical reports on research, structural
analysis, device evaluation and qualification.
Mr. Lynch brings 15 years of communications product development experience to Peraso, including 10 years of specific semiconductor IC development. Prior to founding Peraso, Mr. Lynch was a founder of Cogency Semiconductor, a fabless semiconductor company focused on the development of modems for powerline networking. At Cogency, Brad was primarily responsible for driving the system architecture, including product management duties for both the digital and analog products. Upon the Intellon acquisition of Cogency, Brad became the Director of Software Engineering at Intellon. In this role, Brad made significant technical contributions the HomePlug Powerline specification, and was recognized by the organization as a HomePlug Fellow.
