The Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult centre, based in Wales, has announced the appointment of four UK experts to its non-executive board of directors.
The appointments include Trevor Cross, group chief technology officer of Teledyne e2v; Stephen Duffy, commercial director of Optocap; Jonathan Lyle, chief executive of Dstl; and Wyn Meredith, director of the Cardiff-based Compound Semiconductor Centre (CSC).
The Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult was announced at the start of 2016 and is backed by government funding of £50m. This is the 11th Catapult by Innovate UK with the aim is to support industry’s ability to access and exploit the advances made by UK researchers in compound semiconductor technologies over the past two decades, and to bridge the gap between companies developing novel semiconductor materials, topologies and devices, and those developing systems for end-user applications.
The newest members of the Catapult board represent a cross section of the UK’s leading academic and commercial compound semiconductor industry.
