CST Global Appoints Manager For China


Alex Wen to support sales of lasers into PON and GPON markets and growth in silicon photonic devices

III-V opto-electronic foundry CST Global, a subsidiary of Sivers, has appointed Alex Wen as China country manager. Alex will act as the exclusive Chinese agent for CST Global, with responsibility for growing OEM, distribution and contract manufacturing sales, in the rapidly developing territory.

Euan Livingston, VP sales and marketing at CST Global, said: "Alex is a well-respected figure in the Chinese photonics market, with over 15 years opto-electronics experience. Prior to his appointment by CST Global, he has held senior sales management roles at major international companies, including CyOptics (now part of Avago), Avnet and ComStar Communication.

"We are pleased to welcome Alex to the CST Global team. His appointment is essential to supporting our continuing rapid expansion in this region, supporting record sales of lasers into PON and GPON markets and massive growth in silicon photonic devices."

Alex graduated from Beijing Institute of Technology in 1996 with a Major in Telecommunication Engineering.

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.
