Expert has worked in Assembly Technology since 1977 at such leading companies as Intel and Orient Semiconductor. During the last 30 years, he has amassed a great deal of hands on experience with the interaction of the wafer fabrication process and its impact on the reliable assembly of a semiconductor device.
He has been responsible for all plastic package reliability at Intel and has been the assembly manager at four companies, Intel, Xicor, EDI and ASI before going onto senior management positions in those companies.
He is responsible for introducing novel integration processes that have and continue to generate revenues in excess of $4M.
Expert has a great deal of experience in Asia where his assembly and test facilities were located. He has negotiated several advantageous business initiatives that have saved millions of dollars and improved quality and shortened lead times significantly.
He has been involved with almost every aspect of packaging technology from Al corrosion to lead finish issues. It also included an extensive background in package thermal issues and exotic materials, i.e. diamond substrates. He currently writes the Assembly/Test section for IC Knowledge and has worked with a Big Consulting Company on Package Technology.
In addition, Expert has spent the last 20 years working with Military supplying Hi Rel devices. He has spoken at several Marcus Evans events, concerning packaging technology to solve obsolescence issues and chaired the Military AeroSpace Summit in Florida last year.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: New York, New York - Yonkers, New York - Newark, New Jersey - Jersey City, New Jersey - Paterson, New Jersey - Elizabeth, New Jersey - Bridgeport, Connecticut - New Haven, Connecticut - Hartford, Connecticut - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
