"Diamond is truly entering the mainstream as a material that can solve a number of current bottlenecks in semiconductor and MEMS manufacturing, thereby improving device performance," said Dwain Aidala, president and CEO of sp3 Diamond Technologies. "In light of the rapidly increasing adoption of diamond, Mario's experience and ability to drive innovative technology solutions will strengthen sp3's ability to effectively address market requirements. His extensive experience in the semiconductor industry makes him an ideal fit for our organization."

Dr. Pelella brings a strong background in solid-state device physics, design and modeling, and characterization to sp3's multi-faceted engineering department. He is skilled in the fundamentals and of bulk-Si and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MOS transistor and passive device technologies, high-voltage LDMOS design, bipolar device design, ESD protection and arcing and charging related yield issues.

Most recently, Dr. Pelella served as the director of technology solutions at SVTC Technologies where he was responsible for developing SVTC's technology roadmap for the semiconductor, aerospace and defense, MEMS, life science, photonic and energy industries. Prior to that, he held positions with tau-Metrix, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and IBM.

Dr. Pelella earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Florida and BSEE and MSEE degrees from Clarkson University. He holds over 50 US patents and 15 worldwide patents and is the author of more than 60 publications, including three that earned Best Paper awards.
