Janusz Bryzek, vice president of MEMS and sensing solutions at Fairchild Semiconductor Inc., received his MSc and PhD degrees from Warsaw Technical University, and has been a serial entrepreneur in the field of MEMS. Bryzek co-founded SenSym, IC Sensors and NovaSensors in the 1980s. He founded Jyve Inc. in March 2009 which operated without bringing products to market and was acquired by Fairchild in November 2010.

Bryzek has also been a visionary in attempting to prepare the worlds of MEMS and sensors for the Internet of Things era with initiatives to stage the first Trillion Sensor Summit held in October 2013 and to prepare a trillion sensor roadmap for the industry.
