Nvidia shakes up Tegra leadership team

Summary:The current leader of Nvidia's Tegra processor unit is jumping to a "partner company" to lead as CEO.


Nvidia's super processor Tegra unit is undergoing a bit of a shake-up at the very top.

The GPU maker announced on Tuesday that Deepu Talla is being promoted to lead the Tegra business department.

Deepu joined Nvidia earlier this year as vice president of Tegra business development.

Before that, he was at Texas Instruments for more than a decade, most recently serving as general manager of the semiconductor company's OMAP mobile computing business.

Talla will be replacing Phil Camack, who is leaving the company to take over as chief executive officer for one of Nvidia's partners.

Camack joined Nvidia 10 years ago. Bob Sherbin, vice president of corporate communications at Nvidia, described in a blog post that Camack grew the Tegra group "from scratch to a three-quarters of a billion dollar business."

We pinged Nvidia for further details about Camack's next steps. However, the specific name of the partner company he is leaving for remains a secret.

The only extra details that Nvidia spilled were that it is a "still-private company that is a business partner of NVIDIA" and that Camack's last day at Nvidia is May 15.
