Another Sirf Technology executive calls it quits

Joseph LaValle submitted his resignation as vice president in charge of sales at Sirf Technology on Aug. 19, which will take effect Sept. 9, according to a regulatory filing Thursday.

LaValle, a former Intel executive, joined Sirf in 2003. He is leaving “to pursue other interests.” He becomes the second executive to quit in the past month, after the company’s corporate controller and principal financial officer submitted his resignation “to pursue other interests” on July 31.

Shares of Sirf Technology sank to an all-time low Aug. 11 after the maker of chips and software for global-positioning applications lost an initial ruling by a judge with the U.S. International Trade Commission that found Sirf violated six patents held by Broadcom.
