Axus Technology of Chandler, AZ, USA (which provides CMP, wafer thinning and wafer polishing surface-processing solutions for semiconductor, MEMS/nanofabrication and substrate applications) says that Catherine Bullock has joined it as senior process engineer and account manager, providing support to the firm’s process development and foundry facility as well as strategic account management for customers using the process lab. Responsibilities include process development and support for CMP technology, substrate thinning, bonding, and cleaning technologies.

Bullock is a 22-year semiconductor veteran specializing in CMP, Cu electroplate, metrology, diffusion and implant. She was most recently with Skorpios Technologies, where she established best practices and design rules for CMP integration and saved $200,000 annually in copper electroplate chemical usage. Bullock has also held CMP process engineering positions at Applied Materials (AMAT), Motorola and National Semiconductor. She has been heavily involved in industry standards for device layout, tool and consumable features and processing of novel materials. Bullock has a B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University.

“As a certified project manager and technical instructor for 200 and 300mm Mirra, Mirra Mesa, Reflexion, and Reflexion LK AMAT product lines, she is already well versed in our equipment and processing systems, and her expertise in CMP process improvements will be a great benefit for our customers,” comments Dr Peter Wrschka, director of process technology.

“With the enormous growth in our foundry business, Catherine will help manage and support our increasing account base,” says VP of sales Jim Kelly. “She will not only help support our existing customer base but, with her expertise, help us move our foundry to the next level and make it the leading foundry and development lab for CMP, cleans and wafer grinding.”
