Tim Schermerhorn, formerly general manager of set-top maker Advanced Digital Broadcast's Americas cable business unit, is now heading up worldwide business development for Intel's cable business.
Schermerhorn joined ADB in May 2008 and left in April 2011 as part of what the Switzerland-based company said was a restructuring of the business.
Intel sells media processors designed for cable set-top boxes. The company's CE 3100 chip is in Comcast's "Parker" set-top manufactured by Pace, which runs the operator's Web-based Xcalibur platform. Last year, Intel acquired Texas Instruments' cable modem product line for an undisclosed amount.
Previously Schermerhorn worked for Motorola, most recently as senior director of the company's professional services business, as well as General Instrument and Cable & Wireless.
ADB's Americas cable business is being run by Chris Dinallo, former vice president of technology for Pace Americas who joined ADB's U.S. cable team in late 2009 as vice president of product management.
