SAN MARCOS, Texas — The McCoy College of Business at Texas State University will host Tyson Tuttle, former CEO of Silicon Labs, for a special presentation titled "Building a More Connected World" on Monday, April 18, at 2 p.m. in McCoy Hall 233.

The event is open to Texas State students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Limited seating will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tuttle served as CEO of Silicon Labs for the last decade, retiring in January 2022. The Austin-based company is a leader in semiconductors and secure, intelligent wireless technology, which it sells to design engineers and manufacturers for solving global development challenges. Under Tuttle’s leadership, the company shifted its primary focus to developing technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) — devices and systems connected by networks — including sustainable solutions across home, medical, industrial, and commercial environments.

In his presentation, Tuttle will discuss his leadership journey from engineering to management and the intersection of business and technology. Tuttle joined Silicon Labs in 1997 as its 10th employee, rising through the ranks from senior design engineer to vice president and general manager of broadcast products, then chief technology officer, chief operating officer, and CEO. He continues to serve as a member of the company’s Technical Advisory Board. Tuttle also serves on the board of directors for the San Antonio Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, as well as the advisory board of The Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering. His early career included roles at Cirrus Logic and Broadcom. He earned a B.S. in electrical engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, as well as an M.S. in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles. ✯
