Russell Priebe, Ph.D Russell Priebe, Ph.D
CTO
Founder

Russell brings a comprehensive technical management and engineering background to Tenrehte. Russell was most recently at Freescale Semiconductor where he established and managed a large international team engaged in a wide range of software development and support activities for cellular handsets. These teams delivered baseband applications and drivers, cellular software stack components, and a number of development tools. In this role he established a proven track record of increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of development teams and establishing their value to the business. His teams were instrumental in defining Freescale's long term cellular platform strategy both internally and with target customers. Russell also had process responsibility for the entire cellular software division, where he drove initiatives enhancing the productivity of those groups and the quality of their deliverables. While at Freescale, he also worked as a technical strategist/analyst driving development strategy and qualifying long term wireless business opportunities for the Networking and Computing Systems Group. In this role he focused on emerging wireless standards and technologies (including IEEE 802.11n, IEEE 802.15, IEEE 802.16e (WiMax), 3Gpp LTE) and played a key role in vetting a number of acquisitions and partnerships. Russell also established a number of research initiatives with the University of Texas, resulting in several patent disclosures. Prior to Freescale, he was Director of Engineering at Improv Systems, a semiconductor IP startup focused on configurable digital signal processors. Russell has extensive experience building and managing development teams both at Improv and Freescale.

Russell brings a unique combination of expertise with him - digital signal processing, wireless technologies, technical marketing, and software development processes - coupled with the understanding of how to leverage these for better business results.

Russell holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.


Carlos Barrios Carlos Barrios
Chief Engineer
Founder

Carlos has an extensive engineering background in startup companies. He has worked in large international teams in a corporate setting and has broad experience in new product development. Before joining Tenrehte, Carlos was an Engineer for Vivace Semiconductor where he designed hardware for emulation and prototyping of SOC's, and ultimately ported an entire SOC platform to 2 Xilinx FPGA's. He also wrote software applications for hardware verification that were used during simulation and regression testing, execution on the FPGA prototype and finally on the SOC prototype chip and it's companion development board. Prior to joining Vivace, Carlos was an Engineer for Improv Systems, a Digital Signal Processor IP startup, where he developed, optimized and tested DSP software applications and companion hardware blocks used for encoding and decoding of various types of media such as video and still images. A custom DSP platform was used to run applications. This work resulted in one patent disclosure.

Carlos graduated summa cum laude with both the BS and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology.
