Business Wire: Dr. Homayoon Haddad, previously Vice President of Advanced Sensor & Pixel Development for MagnaChip Semiconductor, has joined SiOnyx as Vice President of Device Engineering. Prior to MagnaChip, Dr. Haddad spent more than 20 years at Hewlett Packard and Agilent where he held a variety of technology management and engineering roles.
“Black silicon offers incredible promise in the sensing and detecting markets where engineers have suffered for decades with the limited response of silicon,” said Dr. Haddad. “It’s 100 times more sensitive to light and incredibly thin, making Black Silicon a true breakthrough in the development of smaller, cheaper, high performance imaging systems.”
"The Black Silicon Company" has also added several other ex-Magnachip leading image sensor scientists and engineers to its team and opened a new engineering office in Beaverton, Oregon. SiOnyx CEO Stephen Saylor noted, “SiOnyx is fortunate to have acquired such outstanding talent with combined experience of more than 50 years in the image sensing and detecting market. Industry interest in devices made from black silicon is very encouraging, and Dr. Haddad and his team will be instrumental in accelerating the delivery of new products to market.”
