David Boisvert and Robin Cheung Join Executive Team to Lead Development and Production of Breakthrough QuantumFilm Sensors
MENLO PARK, CA–(Marketwire – Jan 22, 2013) – InVisage, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based startup revolutionizing imaging, today announced it has added two prominent and respected industry executives to lead the engineering and manufacturing efforts for its QuantumFilm™ sensors. Joining InVisage are David Boisvert as vice president of engineering and Robin Cheung as vice president 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.”
InVisage’s award-winning QuantumFilm digital image sensor utilizes a quantum-dot based material to enable unprecedented light capture efficiency. The result is stunning, professional-quality, digital photographs from tiny form factors, such as cameraphones.
Boisvert brings more than 25 years experience in mixed-signal CMOS design to his new role at InVisage. Previously, he founded the analog signal-processing group at Eastman Kodak and served as a design director for Texas Instruments. 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 vice president of technology. His career spans more than 30 years in all phases of semiconductor production, and includes leadership positions at Unity Semiconductor, Applied Materials, AMD and American Microsystems. 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 Mr. Cheung. “It’s a rare opportunity to work with groundbreaking technology. I am proud to be a member of the InVisage team.”
