Fan is also the holder of a series of US patents for QFN packaging as well as many other semiconductor packaging related patents.

“He is an executive with demonstrated technical talent and superior management skills,” says CEO & president Harry Rozakis about Fan. “Having recently installed Cyrium QDEC [quantum dot enhanced cell] solar cells in a major CPV installation in eastern China, Nelson’s appointment represents the continued expansion of our efforts in China and Asia.”

Fan’s position is designed to allow him to focus on working with Cyrium’s supply chain, pursuing technology options and supporting Chinese and other Asian customers.

“Nelson’s technical qualifications will make him an invaluable person to expand our business in Asia as he will be able to help design and implement solutions that work both for Cyrium and our customers,” Rozakis says.
