Entrepix Expands Technology Capabilities and Senior Management Team

Tempe, AZ | Posted on January 10th, 2008

"CMP and wet chemical processing have been both competitive and complementary technologies over the years. Most state of the art CMP systems have integrated cleans built in, so this is where the marriage begins but is far from where it ends," stated Robert L. Rhoades, Ph.D. and CTO of Entrepix. Rhoades continued, "The independent and entwined capabilities will provide exponential options to our customers. This comes from exploiting the strengths of both technologies: CMP for planarization and surface polish and SEZ for selectivity and adjustable surface conditioning. SEZ's leading single wafer technology provides endless opportunities with various types of chemistries and control of fluid dynamics."

Further, Entrepix also announced that Jim Mello has joined the company as vice president of business development. In this role, Mello will focus on the SEZ foundry development, new business opportunities and Entrepix' expansion strategy. Mello will incorporate these new activities into Entrepix' already successful services model.

"Jim's strong leadership, industry experience and entrepreneurial nature make him an excellent fit for Entrepix' team," said Tim Tobin, president and CEO of Entrepix. "Jim's experience will be a major asset as the company positions itself for significant growth following the recent signing of agreements with four large industry OEMs."

Prior to joining Entrepix, Mello held various executive management positions for SEZ America. He most recently served as the vice president of sales and marketing where he was responsible for the revenue growth of the U.S. business unit. Mello joined SEZ America 12 years ago when he started up the process and applications group and installed a state of the art clean room for development of single wafer wet etch and clean applications and customer demonstrations. Throughout his tenure he held responsibilities for process engineering, applications, field service, customer support, sales and marketing.

Beginning his career at Motorola, Mello spent time in process engineering and fab management in all the major disciplines of device manufacturing. He received a bachelor's degree in Microelectronic Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology and master's degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
