Vijay Israni

CEO Liberty Laboratories

Vijay joined Texas Instruments in 1988 after receiving his Electrical Engineering degree from Iowa State University. During his time at Texas Instruments his work with design, Fabrication, and production engineering helped establish TI as a leader in BiCMOS HVM. He managed product lines doing over 100 Million parts per year performing yield and performance ramps on the BiCMOS product line.

Later Vijay joined Vitesse Semiconductor as a Product Engineer for GaAs ICs. He developed and maintained probe, final test, and characterization test software for ultra-high speed devices.

He Joined Hewlett Packard's Test and Measurement Organization as an applications engineer to help launch HP ATE in the production market.

In 1996 he founded Berkeley Consulting Services, Inc (BCS) with a vision to address the needs of an emerging market in the fabless semiconductor space. BCS was acquired with Odyssey Investment Group and merged with EAG Labs where Vijay served as Vice President of Engineering of the Release to Production (RTP) division. Within three years EAG became one of the biggest outsourced chip services development and verification center in the United States for semiconductor companies.

From 2012 to 2016 provided angel funding to several startups to companies from IOT to medical startups, including his own startup, Volt Test Systems, which continues to develop IP (since 2003) in the Test and Reliability space.

In 2016 he joined Liberty Laboratories as CEO to continue work in the semiconductor test and reliability space.
