As CTO, Dan will be responsible for leadership and development of Analog Devices' technology strategy for applications across the company's end markets.
Leibholz joined ADI in 2008 from Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD), where he had served as an AMD Fellow. Prior to his tenure at AMD, Dan was named a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems Inc.
On joining ADI led a number of engineering teams including Digital Signal Processing and Consumer/Portable technologies before taking up the role of leading the communications business unit. There he oversaw growth as ADI developed and delivered chips for 5G wireless and wired markets.
"Dan's combination of technology vision, experience developing ADI's digital and analog offerings, and strong business background will help us to continue to deliver innovations of maximum impact for our customers and their markets now and into the future," said Vincent Roche, CEO of Analog Devices, in a statement.
"I am looking forward to this new role as we plot a path forward for Analog Devices," said Leibholz, in the same statement. "Our ambition to be 'Ahead of What’s Possible,' combined with our broad array of leading-edge technologies, positions the company for continued leadership in the years ahead."
In February 2019 the company reported first fiscal quarter revenue of $1.54 billion that was down year-on-year by 2 percent but that did experience strong growth in the communications market.
