Enterprise Networking Mag | Monday, July 11, 2022

Mobix Labs Inc., situated in Irvine, California, develops ultra-compact, fully integrated, single-chip, single-die CMOS-based mmWave beamformers, antenna solutions, and RF/mixed-signal semiconductors for 5G and next-generation wireless applications.

FREMONT, CA: “I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity to join an emerging, pedigreed chip startup with customer traction, growing sales and such a talented, deep management team,” said Aralis, who also has served in leadership roles at several integrated circuit manufacturers, including Hughes Aircraft, Silicon Systems, Texas Instruments, and Maxim Integrated, where he established and built its design center in Irvine.

Mobix Labs Inc., a global connectivity solutions supplier for wireless mmWave 5G and wired high-bandwidth cable networks, has named Jim Aralis its new chief technology officer.

Aralis held the same position at Microsemi Corp. for more than a decade and as senior vice president of advanced development until the Aliso Viejo-based chipmaker was sold for $10.3 billion in 2018.

Following the sale of Microsemi, Aralis worked as a consultant, advisor, and board member for a number of tech firms and non-profits.

Aralis has been creating analog, digital, and mixed-signal integrated circuits and related software and firmware for more than 40 years and holds many patents. He has also helped build CAD systems, specialized analog devices, and process technologies.

Aralis led a diversification effort from legacy applications into cutting-edge technologies, such as AI and machine learning, while working alongside Jim Peterson, former CEO and chairman of Microsemi Corporation and now executive chairman of Mobix Labs. During his tenure, Aralis was instrumental in identifying and acquiring 23 strategic acquisitions – including a $2.5 billion deal for PMC-Sierra Inc. – leading a diversification effort from legacy applications into cutting-edge technologies, such as AI and machine learning.

Aralis holds a bachelor's degree in math applied science and physics from UCLA and a master's degree in electrical engineering. With his wife, devoted chocolate lab, and exuberant labradoodle, the physicist and electrical engineer live in Aliso Viejo.
