Bami Bastani joins Sivers Semiconductors as strategic advisor

Chip and integrated module supplier Sivers Semiconductors AB of Kista, Sweden says that Dr Bami Bastani has joined it as a strategic advisor to the board and management to further strengthen the firm’s focus on the US and global markets and to provide guidance related to the semiconductor, photonics, 5G and SATCOM ecosystems.

Bastani has over four decades of extensive experience in the industry, most recently as senior VP & general manager at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, where he led the high-growth Mobile and Wireless Infrastructure business unit. He transitioned to senior VP & senior advisor to the CEO in August 2022 through March 2023. He has also served on the board of directors of the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA).

Bastani’s leadership roles have spanned multiple industries that include semiconductor components (Intel, National Semiconductor), system-on-a-chip (Fujitsu Micro, Trident Microsystems), systems and software (Meru Networks including WiFi as a Service –WAAS-on-the-Cloud) and manufacturing services (GLOBALFOUNDRIES). He has also served as the growth and turnaround CEO of several public companies, including ANADIGICS, Trident Microsystems, and Meru Networks.

“Bami Bastani is a strategically important addition to our team and fits perfectly with the company’s strategy to develop and expand our business,” says Sivers Semiconductors’ chairman Tomas Duffy. “I look very much forward to work with Bami and the board to further strengthen our position in the US,” he adds.

Bastani is “an industry veteran who offers in-depth knowledge directly relevant to the Sivers ecosystem and strategic market presence,” comments group CEO Anders Storm. “Bami will support our continued growth journey, especially in the US which will further strengthen our position,” he adds.

“Sivers is uniquely positioned in photonics, 5G and SATCOM, all of which are critical to the mega trends in connectivity for data centers, point-to-point high-speed data transitions, edge-to-edge connectivity for AI and autonomous vehicles, to mention a few examples,” comments Bastani.
