LOS GATOS, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 14, 2021 / Atomera Incorporated (NASDAQ:ATOM), a semiconductor materials and technology licensing company, today announced the appointment of Sudarsan Srinivasan as vice president of engineering. In this leadership role, Srinivasan will oversee Atomera's technology development and integration engineering efforts. Srinivasan has extensive experience in leading-edge semiconductor process development and integration for some of the world's leading semiconductor chip and wafer fab equipment manufacturers.
Prior to joining Atomera, he has held several technical and leadership roles, most notably at Applied Materials where he led the customer applications technology group to expand Applied Materials' products beyond logic and memory markets. Srinivasan began his career at Intel as a process development engineer, where he developed and transferred technologies to high volume manufacturing in key modules for Intel's 32nm down to 14nm process nodes.
"With the slowdown in Moore's Law, there are many opportunities for Atomera's patented MST technology to deliver significantly better performance in today's electronics," said Scott Bibaud, president and CEO, Atomera. "Sudarsan's proven experience and deep expertise in semiconductor process technology, materials science, product management and chip manufacturing will be invaluable to our customers as we continue to advance and deploy our silicon proven technology into the $450 billion semiconductor industry."
"Today we are seeing a conflict in needs, where automation of everything, including automobiles, drives the need for AI and cloud computing with their increased processing requirements, while we are increasingly conscious of our carbon footprint." said Srinivasan. "Creative semiconductor solutions will be required to meet these needs. I believe Atomera's MST technology enables further transistor dimensional scaling for faster computation without compromising power efficiency in leading and mature nodes. I am proud to be part of this driven team and to help accelerate customer adoption of MST across the industry."
Srinivasan holds a bachelor's in technology degree in metallurgical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He completed a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering at North Carolina State University and was a post-doctoral research associate at the Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago, Illinois.
