Micron Technology has announced that the company has named Michael Rayfield as vice president of wireless solutions group. Mr. Rayfield served as the head of Nvidia Corp.'s Tegra division just a month ago and was very instrumental in development of Nvidia's system-on-chip business.

Mr. Rayfield will be responsible for managing all aspects of Micron's wireless solutions group that provides DRAM, NAND flash, NOR flash and PCM memory solutions, including multi-chip packages, to the global mobile device market. The primary task of Mr. Rayfield will be creation of competitive chips - some of which will include both DRAM and NAND flash - for the rapidly growing market of smartphones and tablets.

"Micron has the industry's broadest set of innovative memory products. Mike has the direct industry experience, relationships and leadership skill set that will help us leverage this portfolio in serving our mobile customers," said Mark Adams, the president of Micron.

With 15 years of executive management experience and nearly 30 years in the industry, Mr. Rayfield worked for the past seven years as the vice president and general manager of Nvidia mobile business unit, where his team created advanced computer on a chip technology and won key mobile industry reference designs.

Michael Rayfield was clearly pretty successful with Tegra at Nvidia as he not only developed the strategy for Nvidia's system-on-chip business, but also executed very professionally, as the company has been competing effectively against much larger companies, namely Texas Instruments and Qualcomm.
