Kyma Wins Research Fund; Reshuffles Management

Armed with up to $3.3 million through another collaboration with the US military, Kyma is looking forward to 2007.

GaN substrate specialist Kyma Technologies has won a development contract worth up to $3.3 million and parted company with Mark Williams, one of the company s co-founders.

The new development contract is with the US Air Force Research Laboratory and Missile Defense Agency, who are funding Kyma s development of semi-insulating native GaN material for improved radio-frequency FET devices.

Georgia Tech s Russ Dupuis will take the lead in epitaxial growth of FET layers.

In a reshuffle of its senior management team, Kyma has promoted Ed Preble to COO. Previous COO Mark Williams, who co-founded Kyma in 1998, has now left the company.

Preble is a graduate of the legendary Bob Davis research group at North Carolina State University that has spawned many of the region's compound semiconductor firms.

Also promoted is Terry Clites, who, as operations manager, will report to Preble.
