Co-Founder, Chief Product Officer,
Yuval brings more than a decade of system design and leadership experience to his current role and has delivered many successful products into the high-performance computing and carrier-class networking markets. Prior to co-founding Eye-Fi, he was a technical leader within the carrier-class routing group at Cisco Systems, where he drove the definition of a new service-aware aggregation platform, working within a cross-functional team to balance cost, power and RAS considerations. Before that he delivered multiple ASIC and FPGA designs as part of the CRS-1 core routing platform, including a joint development with IBM that yielded the world's first OC-768 (40Gbps) router interfaces.
Yuval joined Cisco as part of its acquisition of Growth Networks, where his focus was on the line card interface for Growth's terabit scale, multiservice switch fabric. His contributions included working with partners via the CSIX standards body to ensure interoperability, and specification of a reference system design for the fabric chipset.
Before Growth Networks, Yuval was involved in the development of two generations of scaleable server systems at Silicon Graphics. He was the lead verification engineer for the Origin routing fabric and the SPIDER routing ASIC upon which it was based. He also coded firmware to dynamically configure the fabric at boot time, with support for live reconfiguration in high-availability environments.
