IST - Integrated Surface Technologies

CORONA, Calif., Feb. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- PVA TePla America, Inc.(PTA), a subsidiary of PVA TePla AG (DAX: TPE) announced today it has formed a global strategic alliance with Integrated Surface Technologies (IST) MENLO PARK, CA.  The alliance will leverage the global sales, contract services, field service and development resources of PTA and IST's silane surface chemistry technologies as well as atomic layer deposition techniques. IST's technology focuses on nano-scale (1 x 10−9 m) surface modification films used in the MEMS, BIO-MEMS, Semi, Microarray and Micro fluidics markets.  The IST technology complements PTA's Plasma technology for sub-micron (<1×10−6 m) scale Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) coatings popular in the Medical, Life Sciences, Electronics and Industrial sectors.

IST's founder, Jeff Chinn, Ph.D., has co-authored over 100 technical publications and has 76 issued US patents. He founded Integrated Surface Technologies (IST) in 2007 to develop systems and processes that provide water protection for electronic components by applying nano-composite coatings on consumer electronic devices. Dr. Chinn previously founded Applied Microstructures (AMST), a surface engineering company focused on molecular vapor deposited films. Under his leadership the company sold 45 systems for MEMS, medical and life science applications. Dr Chinn is a veteran of the semiconductor industry with over 25 years experience; he was the General Manager of the MEMS Business Group at Applied Materials where he headed an internal start-up dedicated to the development of processing equipment for the MEMS industry.

PTA is a leader in surface modification and has over 40 years of continuous innovation, designing and manufacturing both atmospheric and low pressure RF and Microwave plasma systems, which are sold throughout the world. An expert staff of scientists and engineers is available to assist in the development of custom plasma equipment and processes that improve both product reliability and increase production yields.
