Intel announced that as CEO Pat Gelsinger continues to rebuild its engineering roster, it will bring back another well-known chip architect and 28-year veteran Shlomit Weiss. Weiss will lead all of Intel’s consumer chip development and design, and appears to succeed Uri Frank, who recently left to lead the Google SoC team. After four years as senior vice president of silicon engineering at Mellanox/Nvidia, Weiss returned to Intel, where she was responsible for managing the company’s network chip design team, which has more than 1,000 people. Nevertheless, her previous achievements during Intel’s service are equally impressive.
During her previous tenure at Intel, Weiss received Intel’s highest achievement award for her work in developing the company’s dual-core architecture, which is the company’s highest award. Later, she was commissioned to lead the team that developed Intel’s famous Sandy Bridge and Skylake processors.
Intel’s Skylake may be one of the company’s most famous chip architectures, simply because the company has delivered multiple iterations of the same design over a period of six years when dealing with the effects of its 10-nanometer delay. Perhaps proving the potential of the design, Skylake played an important role in helping Intel survive the incredibly long delays between processing nodes-the architecture spanned Intel’s 6th to 10th generation Core processors and Multi-generation server chips.Intel has largely conceded AMD’s 10% overall market share (About 8% for servers and 10% for desktops/laptops), but given the severity of the company’s delays, this is surprisingly limited.
Weiss rejoined Intel as the senior vice president and co-general manager of the company’s design engineering group (DEG) and will be responsible for all the company’s client chip development and design processes. It seems that Weiss will assume the role previously played by Uri Frank. Recently left Intel to lead Google’s SoC development.
Weiss will work with Sunil Shenoy, Another veteran who has worked at Intel for a long time said Recently rejoined the companyShenoy will co-manage the design engineering group with Weiss in Isreal. We are not clear about the division of responsibilities (he may lead the data center design plan), but we are following up with Intel for more details.The two will also work with the famous chip architect Glenn Hinton, who will also Recently returned to Intel.
Intel’s most famous architecture has long come from its Israeli design team. Gelsinger continued to focus on rebuilding the design team after he recently reorganized the data center group, which led to a long-term departure. Navin Shenoy, Head of DPG.
Gelsinger obviously relied on the experience of proven Intel veterans, because he rebuilt the company after years of mistakes and the loss of most of the talent. Weiss has a master’s degree. Holds an honours degree in electrical engineering from the Israel Institute of Technology and a bachelor’s degree in computer science. She has registered a number of microprocessor development patents and founded the Intel Israel Women’s Forum.
Weiss commented on her appointment: “I am very happy to return to this place where I have been my home for 28 years, where I grew and developed in my career as a manager and as a person. I have been following Intel’s Pat Gelsinger, Draws a new and bold strategy for a company, which I believe will accelerate “the company’s leadership position.” I will put my energy into ensuring that Intel continues to maintain its leading position in the hardware and chip areas. “
