MacMillan will be responsible for global sales and marketing and will be based at the company’s new office in Orange County, CA, USA.
Epiluvac AB, the Swedish manufacturer of CVD equipment for wide-bandgap semiconductors, has announced that Michael MacMillan has joined the company as VP of sales and marketing. MacMillan will be responsible for Epiluvac’s global sales and marketing, and will be based at the company’s new office in Orange County, CA, USA.
Bo Hammarlund, board director, dusiness development says: “This is an important milestone for Epiluvac. We see a growing demand for the next generation CVD equipment, not only for SiC but also for GaN. Mike’s expertise in SiC epitaxy, together with his long experience from both research and manufacturing companies, will certainly bring exciting benefits to our products and also our customers.”
MacMillan was recently chief epitaxial scientist at SemiQ (formerly Global Power Technologies Group), Lake Forest, CA, and his career spans from early SiC research at Linköping University, Sweden in the 1990’s to many years as leader and SiC scientist in major US companies like Northrop Grumman and Dow Corning. MacMillan holds a PhD in Physics from University of Pittsburgh.
“This is a great opportunity and privilege to be part of this highly skilled team with their new, exciting CVD platform for wide bandgap semiconductors,” says MacMillan.
Epiluvac has recently introduced a new unique product generation, primarily intended for SiC and GaN epitaxy. The new 'WBG-Multi-Reactor-CVD' systems are based on so called hot-wall CVD and single-wafer processing of up to 200 mm (8 inch) wafers with option to connect multiple chambers and wafer handling robots together in a cluster tool configuration to meet each customer’s requirement for higher output, flexibility or stepwise wafer processing through multiple chambers. Epiluvacs’s products are sold worldwide either directly or through local partners.
