Inphi Appoints Nicholas Brathwaite To Its Board

The indium phosphide (InP) provider of high-speed, mixed signal semiconductor solutions for the communications and computing markets has a new person on board
Inphi Corporation has announced that Nicholas Brathwaite has joined its Board of Directors.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Nicholas to Inphi’s Board of Directors," says Ford Tamer, Inphi’s president and CEO. “We are excited about his in-depth knowledge and wealth of expertise in driving innovation for high-tech, global companies."

Brathwaite is a founding Partner of Riverwood Capital, a growth equity, middle market technology investment firm with investments in Asia, Latin America and the United States. He has also been involved with semiconductor companies, hardware development and electronic services (including manufacturing) since 1986.

Brathwaite served as the CEO of Aptina Imaging Corporation for approximately two years and is currently its Chairman of the Board.

Prior to Aptina, he joined Flextronics International Ltd. in 1995 as its Vice President of Technology and then from 2000 to 2007 served as its Chief Technology Officer. Flextronics acquired nChip, where he then held the position of Vice President and General Manager of operations from 1992 to 1996. Brathwaite also spent six years with Intel Corporation in various engineering management positions in technology development and manufacturing.

Brathwaite has served as a director of Power Integrations since January 2000 and as a member of the board of Lighting Science Group since April 2011. Nicholas Brathwaite also served as a member of the board of directors of Tessera Technologies, Inc., from February 2008 until May 2011 and Photon Dynamics, Inc. prior to its acquisition in 2008.

Brathwaite received a B.S. in Applied Chemistry from McMaster University, and an M.S. in Polymer Science & Engineering from University of Waterloo. He has also completed the Wharton Executive Education Training Program on Corporate Governance.

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.
