memsstar is poised to take advantage of the significant growth potential of the MEMS and remanufactured semiconductor equipment markets,² said Peter Connock, chairman of the board of memsstar. "Both MEMS and remanufactured equipment are forecast to see continuing growth over the next few years. Tony, with his industry experience and in-depth knowledge of technology, is ideally suited to ensure we maximize our opportunities in these markets. We look to Tony to advance our MEMS technology beyond our present capabilities and drive our efforts to expand our remanufactured equipment and services business.²

Europe remains a centre for semiconductor technology development in emerging applications along with the cost-effective manufacture of legacy products, both of which benefit from production-ready remanufactured legacy semiconductor processing equipment ­ a market poorly supported by conventional suppliers. Under McKie's guidance, memsstar will expand its portfolio of process capabilities and services to better supply the needs of its customers.

At the same time, single wafer dry release etch is seeing global adoption by the leading advanced MEMS manufacturers to overcome the process challenges associated with traditional wet etch and batch etch processes. memsstar's proprietary sacrificial vapour release etch technology is market-proven and positioned to take advantage of emerging requirements for MEMS manufacturing.

³Tony has been a key resource as the company has developed," said Andrew Elder, non-executive director representing Albion Ventures. "His extensive knowledge of the industry, together with his vision for ongoing development and expansion, makes him the obvious choice to lead the company through its next stage of growth.²

As one of memsstarıs founders, McKie was responsible for developing the memsstar range of technology products and managing business development activities for the single wafer release etch platforms. He brings an extensive background in semiconductor equipment manufacturing through prior management roles at Electrotech, Lam Research and Applied Materials.
