    • Rudolph recruit new director of lithography sales »


      Wednesday 7th August 2013

      Rudolph Technologies, Inc., a provider of process characterization equipment and software and photolithography equipment for microelectronic manufacturers, has announced the appointment of Klaus Ruhmer as director of lithography sales for the company’s Lithography Systems Group, which includes both advanced packaging lithography and display panel lithography.  

      Ruhmer joins Rudolph with lithography and advanced packaging knowledge, having held a variety of semiconductor equipment related sales, marketing and application roles over the past 17 years. Part of his global responsibility is to work directly with Rudolph regional managers, field sales teams and customers. 

      Rudolph’s Lithography Systems Group, was formed amid the acquisition of Azores Corp. last December, and is built on a strong foundation of established flat panel display photolithography technology. Rudolph transitioned this technology to serve 200mm, 300mm and 450mm semiconductor advanced packaging requirements with the introduction of the JetStep Lithography System in late 2012. Most recently, the company introduced the JetStep Panel Lithography System to address a key trend of manufacturers moving from wafers to panels for fan-out wafer level packaging processes such as embedded wafer level ball grid array (eWLB). Ruhmer’s invaluable experience makes him uniquely qualified to direct Rudolph’s lithography equipment sales efforts for both the established flat panel display market and the growing advanced packaging market.
