Transmeta promotes execs

Chipmaker Transmeta has promoted Jim Chapman and Doug Laird from senior vice presidents to executive vice presidents. Chapman, who worked at Cyrix and Intel before joining Transmeta, is in charge of sales and marketing. Laird, a Transmeta co-founder and a manager who helped oversee development of Sun Microsystems' UltraSparc I chip, is in charge of product development. Santa Clara, Calif.-based Transmeta makes chips that, when combined with special software, compete with Intel designs for portable devices that require long battery life.
