Nitronex appoints Palmieri as quality assurance manager

Maker of GaN-on-silicon RF power transistors, Nitronex has appointed Frank A. Palmieri to the position of quality manager at its Durham, NC manufacturing and R&D facility.

Before joining Nitronex, Palmieri was the quality manager at AVX, responsible for the quality of passive components, such as varistors, film caps, MOVs, and connectors. Palmieri was also the operations and quality manager of the team that launched AVX’s Juarez, Mexico facility, where he oversaw the ISO 9000 certification. He has also helped other AVX facilities around the world receive their ISO 9000 certifications.

“The addition of an experienced industry veteran like Frank Palmieri underscores the transition at Nitronex from being a great engineering company to one that will also be a solid link in the supply chain. Frank adds a new perspective and ushers in a fresh outlook for Nitronex,” said Bruce Cochran, VP of operations at Nitronex.

Palmieri received a BSEE from the University of Pittsburgh.
