This 60-minute Flexinar will highlight the need for connection among the semiconductor, electronics packaging, and flexible printed electronics industries. Knowledge gained from material and process innovation can certainly help advance the evolving flexible printed electronic industry. Likewise, requirements of printed electronics can feed into design integration for microprocessors and memory devices. This inter-industry communication will help recognize critical points of overlap and feedback loops to enable advancements in designs of integrated flexible substrate and interconnects, developing advanced semiconductors with significantly more processing capability & reduced power consumption.
The main goal of this Flexinar is to initiate conversation among the experts of these three industries and highlight some of the key challenges and potential solutions in realizing the FHE manufacturing ecosystem.
Dr. Jyoti Malhotra earned her Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2002 from the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology). Her Ph.D. research studies were partly conducted at the University of Hull, United Kingdom (1998-2000), and mainly dealt with synthesis of complex organic compounds that can be used for biomedical applications. She then worked as a postdoctoral fellow (2002-2004) at Argonne National Laboratory. Her postdoctoral research emphasized design and development of polymeric platforms for advanced biosensor applications. She joined Brewer Science in 2004 and has worked in a wide range of capacities including R&D, government contracts, and customization roles. She currently holds four U.S. patents and has published in highly rated journals for variety of topics such as specialty protective coatings for MEMS, conjugated polymers for biosensors, high index composites for LEDs, and nanostructured anodes for energy storage. Most recently, she has been serving as Director of the Technology Advancement Group. Her team is responsible for identifying and launching key collaborations and strategic affiliations with domestic and international universities, institutes, consortia, national laboratories and government agencies for advancement of Brewer Science’s semiconductor lithography, printed electronics, and other advanced technologies. Dr. Malhotra is an invited affiliate of the American Chemical Society’s Committee on Chemistry and Public Affairs. She has also served as a councilor of the local ACS section in South Central Missouri (2011-2017). From 2008-2013, she was an invited reviewer for the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering. Recently, she delivered a webinar to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on energy storage technologies (June 2017).
James Lamb is a 34-year veteran of the semiconductor and electronics industry in both technology development and commercialization. He currently serves as Deputy CTO Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing and Corporate Technical Fellow at Brewer Science. Previously, he served as Director of the Carbon Electronics Center and Printed Electronics Center from 2010-2014. From 2008-2010, Jim served as Managing Director of Product Management, and from 2001 through 2008, he served as Director of Corporate Business Development and the New Business Group. Earlier responsibilities at Brewer Science include Product Reliability Manager, Customer Technical Service Manager, and ARC® materials Quality Control Manager. Before joining Brewer Science in 1984, he worked as a Process Engineer at IBM East Fishkill. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1982 with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. During his career, he has contributed as an inventor on 20 patents and as a coauthor of 28 technical publications.
