It also expands Aricent’s services and expertise to help the world’s top innovators accelerate development of software, hardware and network products for the Internet of Things.

Pradeep Vajram, co-founder and CEO of SmartPlay, will take on a new role as president of Aricent’s Semiconductor Business Unit. He reports to Frank Kern, Aricent’s chief executive officer.

“SmartPlay has built a very impressive business over the last seven years, and we’re excited to welcome them to the Aricent family,” said Kern. “Our combined expertise in silicon, software and connectivity will help propel product development for our clients in some of the most exciting technology areas working across automotive, consumer electronics, industrial automation, semiconductor and other industries.”

SmartPlay is one of the world’s fastest-growing services firms with 1,200 employees in India, Germany, Singapore and the U.S. It serves 80% of the top 20 semiconductor companies and received the Mentor Graphics Leadership Award for Best Electronics System Design Start-up.

Vajram brings 25 years of semiconductor industry experience to Aricent, having executed design and development of semiconductor products at all levels of responsibility. Prior to co-founding SmartPlay, Vajram was vice president of engineering at Qualcomm. Under his leadership, the Qualcomm Bangalore Design Center developed as a strong center of excellence with multiple successful products.
