Nanometrics Incorporated (Nasdaq: NANO), a leading supplier of advanced process control metrology systems used primarily in the manufacturing and packaging of semiconductors, solar photovoltaics and high-brightness LEDs, today announced that Vincent Coates, company founder and vice-chairman of the board, has resigned from the Board of Directors.
Vincent Coates founded Nanometrics in 1975, and in his tenure developed multiple product lines and grew Nanometrics into an important metrology and process control company for the world wide semiconductor industry. In 1995, SEMI recognized Mr. Coates with a lifetime achievement award for his work in Scanning Electron Microscopy, and currently he holds more than 20 U.S. patents. Vince developed the first NanoSpec as a general purpose instrument targeted at bio-technology and industrial applications, but after some early applications wins in thin-film metrology for semiconductor devices, he quickly changed the target and focus of the business. Since the launch of the first NanoSpec 10, under Vince's leadership, the company developed multiple product lines addressing many aspects of process control and metrology for the semiconductor industry, while still supporting the original NanoSpec line for broader industry use.
"Vince is a remarkable entrepreneur and provided leadership and innovation for Nanometrics," commented Bruce Rhine, Chairman. "His contributions to the company culture and technology have been key factors that have contributed to Nanometrics' success. We appreciate all that he has done and look forward to his continuing contribution as a member of our Scientific Advisory Committee. We wish him well in the future."
Effective immediately, Norman Coates has joined the Board of Directors.
