Serving the Semiconductor, Financial and Legal Communities 
Deborah Kaller

Deb founded Parallel Semiconductor LLC in 2007 with a focus on integrated circuit package technology development and intellectual property management for the handheld and portable markets.  She works closely with end customers, product architects, silicon designers and marketing teams to define new products and solutions where the package strategy is key to a successful business.

From 1992 to 2006, Deb led technology developments at Intel Corporation for die stacking, package-on-package (PoP) stacking, pin count control and package size reduction for system integration programs including memory, application and communication processors, analog and RF.  She has direct experience with third-party assembly test contractors plus has developed, ramped, and managed US-based assembly facilities.  She supported activities related to the divestiture of the Cellular Handheld group to Marvell Technology and was part of the Marvell team in 2007 following the transition.  Deb started her career at Burr-Brown Corporation, first in the wafer fab, then in packaging, including development and in-house production ramp of one of the first laminate / molded multichip packages.

Deb graduated in 1983 from the University of Arizona with a BS in Chemical Engineering.  She has two patents and has made numerous presentations at industry conferences.

Roy Kaller
Managing Director

Over 25 years, Roy has built successful products, engineering teams, design centers, product lines, start-ups and public companies. 

Prior to joining Parallel Semiconductor LLC, he was Vice President of Corporate Engineering at Standard Microsystems (SMSC) where he provided leadership to many of SMSC's engineering teams and guidance to the senior staff to nurture the development of the business strategy, silicon technology and products which transformed SMSC into a true mixed-signal semiconductor supplier.  Prior to SMSC, Roy was Vice President of Engineering and a member of the board of directors at Gain Technology which SMSC acquired in June 2002.

At National Semiconductor, Silicon Systems and Burr-Brown, Roy and his teams were responsible for industry pioneering contributions in such diverse areas as power management (Switched Capacitor regulators for portable electronics), automotive safety (airbag diagnostic controllers) and high performance analog and data converter ICs (some generating revenue for over 20 years). He has supported the IEEE Solid State Circuits Conference as an Analog Committee member and was the instructor of the Integrated Power Management tutorial in 2005. 

Roy earned his BSEE from University of Arizona in 1983 and graduated from the U of A’s Arizona Executive Program in 1992.
