PRESS RELEASE

Noel Technologies, Silicon Valley’s Specialty Foundry, Names Siavash Parsa Director of Technology

Photolithography, deep silicon etching, nanoimprint and process development high on priority list for semiconductor veteran

May 29, 2014, Campbell, CA – Noel Technologies, a Silicon Valley specialty foundry offering process development and substrate fabrication, has added semiconductor industry veteran Siavash Parsa to its growing management staff. Parsa will manage and direct all aspects of Noel’s process development, integration and fabrication.

Beyond his responsibilities in photolithography, Parsa will also direct technology in thin films, wet and dry etch, and wet and dry cleaning. He will manage the implementation of Noel’s efforts in deep silicon etching with new, advanced etchers. Recently, Noel announced their cost reduction processes for nanoimprint stamps. Parsa will continue enabling nanoimprint capabilities and also Noel’s emphasis on working with MEMS and LED suppliers.

Parsa brings to Noel over 20 years of semiconductor engineering and fabrication management experience. Most recently he was Process Engineering Manager for the University of California’s Marvell Nanofabrication lab (formerly Microlab). There he was the project lead for the relocation of the entire operation (over 130 tools) to a new clean room lab. Prior to that he served in a number of engineering, photolithography, and fabrication management positions for several semiconductor manufacturers, including Xicor and Integrated Device Technology.
