ClassOne Appoints Board Of Technology Advisors

Industry veterans Larry Murphy, Eric Choh and Tom Pilla to provide expansion guidance

ClassOne Technology, a manufacturer of wet processing equipment for ≤200mm substrates, has formed a board of advisors made up of senior executives from the semiconductor industry. They will provide their perspective and guidance as ClassOne expands its operations. 

Three distinguished industry notables, Larry Murphy, Eric Choh and Tom Pilla (pictured L to R above) have been named to the board.

"ClassOne is experiencing very rapid growth right now, and we wanted to incorporate the broad perspective and deep experience that these gentlemen can bring to our effort," said Kevin Witt, president of ClassOne Technology. "Larry, Eric and Tom are long-respected leaders in this industry and have already proven to be a huge asset. We are fortunate and honoured to have them on our team."

"We are delighted to add our support and endorsement to ClassOne," said Larry Murphy. "We've seen the customer focus and innovative technology that this company is bringing to the industry. ClassOne is disrupting the old status quo and delivering much-needed high-performance electroplating and wet process equipment to the smaller-substrate markets - markets that have been generally underserved."

Larry Murphy is presently CEO at PROOF Research. Previously, he had been CEO at Thompson Technology Group, VP and GM of North America & Europe SSG sales at Applied Materials, and VP and GM of the Semitool Business at Applied Materials. Earlier, he had served as president and COO at Semitool for six years, and before that, as president and CEO at Tosoh SMD for more than 14 years.

Eric Choh has spent more than 30 years in the semiconductor industry with extensive experience in wafer fab operations and advanced technology development. Most recently he was the VP/GM of Globalfoundries' Fab 8. Choh had also held a number of senior positions at AMD, including VP of advanced process development and executive nanaging director of the AMD/UMC Alliance.

Tom Pilla now holds the position of global supply chain director and electronic materials/business manufacturing director of litho materials at Dow Chemical. Previously, he served as VP of operations at Rohm and Haas Electronic Materials, VP of operations at Rodel, and global supply chain director at Rohm and Haas.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
