Aptina New CEO Makes First Appointment

Yahoo: New Aptina CEO David Orton appointed Greg Helton as President and Managing Director of Aptina Japan. Prior to joining Aptina Greg Helton was President of Fairchild Semiconductor Japan since 2002. Before Fairchild, Helton ran LSI Logic's Japanese subsidiary as president of LSI Logic Japan. Previous experience included senior management positions with VLSI Technology and National Semiconductor. Helton is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo, from which he earned bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering.


  1. I suppose Aptina must have big plans for this relatively small design center. Or Orton felt that he needed some American expat to run the place instead of trusting the present Japanese management. I think this is really strange unless they have really really big plans. Really.

  2. do you mean aptina will cooperate with some japanese company?

  3. Interesting perspective. Sony + Aptina, or Toshiba + Aptina?
