Fares MubarakSPARK Microsystems is pleased to announce the appointment of Fares Mubarak as its new CEO, effective immediately. Mr. Mubarak will actively manage the daily operations of all aspects of the business in order to bring SPARK Microsystems to release its game-changing wireless technology to customers in 2019.

Mr. Mubarak is a seasoned Silicon Valley global executive with more than 30 years of broad management and hands-on experience spanning semiconductor design, software development, operations, sales, marketing, applications, and EDA. Mr. Mubarak holds an MSEE degree from Case Western Reserve University and an MBA from Golden Gate University.

“I am excited and honored to be part of the creative team at Spark Microsystems. With tens of billions of devices and sensors getting connected over the next few years, current wireless platforms have become the biggest culprits of system power consumption and battery life degradation of IoT nodes. The ultra-low power SPARK radio will usher the next generation of easy to deploy and maintain IoT sensor networks, enabling a new class of battery-less and extra-long battery life applications, while providing order of magnitude improvements in latency and data rate,” said Mr. Mubarak.

“Mr. Mubarak is highly experienced and is the ideal candidate to help bring to market our vision of an ultra-low power wireless technology that will enable battery-less sensors. We are excited to have him onboard and lead our roadmap toward our first commercial wireless transceiver in 2019,” said Frederic Nabki, co–founder and CTO of SPARK Microsystems.
