Transmeta board makes room for Cisco CFO
Transmeta has elected Cisco CFO Larry Carter to its board of directors, the low-power x86 chip maker told world+dog today.
Carter's experience will no doubt come in useful to Transmeta as it begins to move beyond its early set-up and development phase into a period of supplying and servicing real customers.
Carter has been Cisco's CFO since 1995, but his background is the semiconductor biz - albeit on the money side - with stints at AMD, VLSI, Motorola and STMicroelectronics.
Carter was promoted to Cisco's own board last July. He's also on the boards of Network Appliance, QLogic and eSpeed.
All in all, he provides plenty of brain-picking material for Transmeta's bosses. ®
