Mike Clauser, who did a nearly five-year stint at Japan's Fujitsu Global as the lead American for government affairs in the US, has joined Analog Devices, $5.2B semiconductor company in Norwood, MA, as head of government affairs.

Based in DC, Clauser expects to monitor government policy and its implications for semiconductors used for military radar, driverless cars, telecommunications, drones, and consumer electronics.

Clauser, an officer in the US Navy Reserve, served as national security legislative assistant for Congressman Mac Thornberry prior to joining the Fujitsu.

The Texas Republican chaired the Armed Services Committee with oversight on military, cybersecurity, homeland security and intelligence legislation.

Prior to Thornberry, Clauser worked in the Pentagon as special assistant to the deputy under secretary of the Navy.
