Extra fancy chip start-up Tilera has tapped a new CEO just a few weeks after emerging from semi-stealth mode.

The company grabbed Omid Tahernia as CEO and President. Tahernia replaces Devesh Garg, who has returned to Bessemer Venture Partners to get his venture capitalist vibe going again.

Tahernia arrives at Tilera from FPGA shop Xilinx where he was general manager in charge of the Processing Solutoins Group.

Tilera grew out of a MIT research project and unveiled its first product in August. The company has targeted the networking and multimedia markets with a 64-core chip, which can crank through mutli-threaded software at a dramatic clip. ®
