With undergraduate degrees in both science and mathematics and a masters in Computer science, Ron brings extensive research & development skills to the group through his 10 years at Tektronix in a blue sky development group. Taking existing tech knowledge and creating new products, he developed a software system to test integrated circuit designs for errors before they are built. Hired away from Tektronix, Ron went to work at the startup TriQuint to do design verification on the gallium arsenide integrated circuit chip fabrication that TriQuint developed. TriQuint, is now a multibillion dollar company and best known for making computer chips for Apple products. It is also the leader in high performance RF components for wireless communication.
With a $3K investment, Ron left TriQuint and started Integrated Financial Solutions, where he created software that took satellite market information and linked it to a user's computer, giving a home investor access and control of the same information a stock broker would see in an office. He then developed the analytics technology that allowed a private investor to make informed trades from home. He successfully sold the company and its 6K clients for $1.5 million to DTN.
