March 2, 2005 – Ziptronix has appointed 17-year semiconductor industry veteran Phil Nyborg as its new president and CEO. The company said that Nyborg will guide it as it more fully commercializes its proprietary bonding and interconnect processes for 3DICs.
As the former chief executive of two semiconductor companies, Nyborg will pinpoint market segments in the electronics industry where Ziptronix’ 3D technology will prove to be most useful, and will help Ziptronix continue to build relationships with key players in the 3DIC supply chain and related design infrastructure.
“Ziptronix has developed an impressive portfolio of intellectual property that I believe holds solutions to a number of vexing problems facing the industry,” Nyborg said.
Mitch Mumma, a member of Ziptronix’ Board of Directors and a general partner with Intersouth Partners adds, “Phil brings an outstanding record of successfully commercializing semiconductor technology and we are thrilled that he is on board.”
Prior to being named president and CEO of Ziptronix, Nyborg served as CEO at JAM Technologies of Boston. Prior to that, Nyborg was president and a founder of ONEX Communications, a producer of high-speed, telecommunications SoC integrated circuits. Over the course of his career, Nyborg has played a key role in new product and service introductions at SALIX (acquired by Tellabs), Whistle Communications (acquired by IBM), TRW, Ameritech/SBC, Transwitch, Hewlett-Packard, MCI and others.
