Top-class reinforcement for FMC

Dresden-based Ferroelectric Memory GmbH (FMC), technology leader for ferroelectric hafnium oxide and portfolio company of eCAPITAL AG, has appointed Daniel Artusi to its Board of Directors. He has taken over the chairmanship of the Board of Directors.

Daniel Artusi can look back on more than 40 years of experience in the semiconductor industry. After holding management positions at various semiconductor and technology companies such as Conexant Systems, Coldwatt, Inc., Silicon Laboratories, Motorola Inc and Lantiq Deutschland GmbH, he was most recently Vice President in the Client Computing Group and General Manager for the Connected Home division of Intel Corporation. He also serves on various boards, including MaxLinear, Inc., Minim, GenXComm, VislC-Tech and on the Engineering Advisory Board of the Cockrell School of Engineering (University of Texas).

Daniel is convinced by the FMC team and the superior technology.

I look forward to working with Ali and the rest of the FMC team. FMC has developed a unique and patented technology for transforming amorphous HfO2 into crystalline ferroelectric HfO2, which can offer superior performance compared with state-of-the-art and emerging memory solutions. This technology will bring significant benefits to applications such as AI and 5G, Big Data, which require high-performance and low power consumption as well compatibility with leading-edge CMOS logic processes.
