Ellen Pressley

DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM), part of DuPont Electronic Technologies, today announced that Senior Scientist Roupen Keusseyan will be presented with the William D. Ashman Award by the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS). The award is in recognition of Roupen's outstanding technical contributions related to microelectronics technology.

The award ceremony will be held at the IMAPS symposium in San Diego, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2006, where DuPont also will showcase its extensive portfolio of microcircuit material offerings for applications in the military, biomedical and RF/wireless industries.

"We’re very pleased with the recognition Roupen is receiving from IMAPS," said Justin Blount, Americas business manager, DuPont Microcircuit Materials. "His contributions to this industry have been of great significance and his developments are a key part of our continued success at DuPont. The breadth of our product offering and the expertise our people bring to the science of microcircuit materials is a wining combination for DuPont. The Ashman Award represents a tremendous professional honor, for which we offer our heartfelt personal congratulations to Roupen."

The Ashman Award recognizes long-standing contributions to both IMAPS and the microelectronics industry. Examples of Dr. Keusseyan’s work include the development of brazing technology for integrated hermetic packages using DuPont thick film and Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (LTCC) for high reliability electronics applications in high speed data processing, military, telecommunications, automotive and other critical applications. He invented Transfer Material Technology (TMT) to enable the cost-effective mass production of high-performance large plasma display panels. In his more than 20 years with DuPont, he has developed more than 100 new specialized thick film compositions. Dr. Keusseyan also is an active member of IMAPS and the Society for Information Displays.

DuPont will exhibit at the IMAPS symposium in booth #419. In addition to showcasing innovative, RoHS compliant material-based solutions designed to enable increased functionality and miniaturization, DuPont will present a technical paper at the show on the dimensional control of DuPont™ 943 LTCC GreenTape™ for high frequency applications. DuPont delivers reliability and integrated solutions to diverse markets, through complete, compatible material systems with proven performance.
