QP Semiconductor Names John O'Boyle Director of Business Development

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May 17, 2005— QP Semiconductor today confirmed that John O'Boyle has joined the company as director of business development, reporting to John Stannard, president. In bringing 30 years of semiconductor industry experience to this newly created position, O'Boyle will take the lead in assessing business growth opportunities for QP, which will be marking the 20th anniversary of its founding later this year. He will also oversee the development of new business relationships and direct the strategic planning in support of the company's core business, mission-critical military/aerospace programs.

"Our appointment of John underscores our drive to grow our business as one of the industry's largest pure-play suppliers of QML devices for military/aerospace and high reliability applications," said Stannard. "It is no coincidence that John joins us on the heels of our fully adopting the fabless business model to complement our capabilities to design, re-engineer and test a broad range of mil/aero and hi-rel ICs."

O'Boyle's semiconductor technology and business experience ranges from worldwide strategic marketing responsibilities at Samsung and Tower Semiconductor to commercial space business development at National Semiconductor. His background also includes a stint at Dataquest, where as a vice president and director he developed an entirely new business unit (Consulting Services) that addressed the needs of government, industrial and consumer customers. Earlier in his career, O'Boyle held engineering positions with Color Planar Displays Inc. and Fairchild Semiconductor. He holds BSEE, MSEE and MBA degrees from Santa Clara University.
