Invisage Beefs Up Engineering Team, Approaches Mass Production

MarketWire: InVisage adds two executives to lead the engineering and manufacturing efforts for its QuantumFilm sensors. Joining InVisage are David Boisvert as VP engineering and Robin Cheung as VP of materials and manufacturing.

"These are critical positions as we begin production of our breakthrough QuantumFilm sensor. I am thrilled that David and Robin -- whose reputations are stellar in the imaging and semiconductor industries -- have joined InVisage to lead our engineering and manufacturing efforts," said Jess Lee, president and CEO of InVisage. "Robin and David bring a wealth of depth and experience that strongly positions us as we move into the high volume product phase of InVisage's growth."

Previously, Boisvert founded the analog group at Kodak and served as a design director for TI. He also held a number of leadership positions at National Semiconductor, including leading the High Speed Signal Path business unit, and serving as a strategic technologist. Boisvert holds several patents in the areas of image sensor design and mixed signal processing for imaging applications. He holds the PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.

"As a technologist who has devoted his career to designing high volume semiconductor devices, I am fortunate to be working with a company that is committed to developing a product that will transform the industry," said Boisvert. "I'm looking forward to helping move InVisage chips out of the lab and into full production."

Cheung joins InVisage from Qs Semiconductor, where he served as VP of technology. His career includes leadership positions at Unity Semiconductor, Applied Materials, AMD and AMI. Cheung holds 94 patents in the area of semiconductor manufacturing and was a founding member of the International Interconnect Technology Conference (IITC). Mr. Cheung holds the M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

"Having spent my career in semiconductor production, I am excited by the challenges presented by the production of QuantumFilm sensors," said Cheung. "It's a rare opportunity to work with groundbreaking technology. I am proud to be a member of the InVisage team."
