Janusz Bryzek is a CEO of Jyve Inc., Silicon Valley startup company developing advanced integrated MEMS systems on a chip.
He received his MS (1970) and Ph.D. (1978) degrees in electrical engineering from Warsaw Technical University, Poland. He completed Executive Management Program at Stanford University in 1987.
Bryzek cofounded eight Silicon Valley companies, seven introducing products based on the cutting edge MEMS and VLSI technologies: Sensym (now Honeywell), ICSensors (now Elmos/MSI), NovaSensor (now General Electric), Intelligent MicroSensor Technology (now Maxim), Transparent Networks (IP acquired by Intel), LVSI (now Atmel)) and Jyve (private), as well as a strategic management consulting company BN Ventures (private).
Some of Bryzek’s developments include world’s first disposable blood pressure sensor (currently serving 70% of a global 30 million unit market), SenstableTMprocess for pressure sensors (currently shipping 100 million units per year), world’s first pressure sensors based on silicon fusion bonding (currently shipping 100 million units per year), world’s first DRIE MEMS structures, single chip 1200 MEMS mirror array with integrated VLSI drivers (4800 15-bit DACs with 120V amplifiers), multichip tire pressure sensing system with pressure sensor, two-axis acceleration sensor and a single chip ASIC including sensor interfaces, asynchronous microcontroller, FracN synthesizer and world’s first CMOS RKE radio.
Bryzek has published over 200 papers, wrote sections of 4 books, chaired many international conferences and has 20 issued US patents.
Bryzek was actively involved in the MEMS standardization effort, including Disposable Blood Pressure Transducers released by AAMI in 1984 and Smart Transducer Interface IEEE-1451 released as several sub-standards in the 1990s.
In 1989 he was recognized as “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Arthur Young. In 1994 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by Sensors Magazine for the achievements in MEMS field. In 2003 he awarded a lifetime Achievement Award by MANCEF.
