SANTA CLARA CA, USA — /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Three companies, Thermal Engineering Associates (TEA), Package Science Services (PSS), and Microsanj, have collaborated to form the Microelectronic Design and Measurement (MD&M) Group.
The MD&M Group will better serve customers of the three companies with a broad range of complementary products and services in the very specialized field of semiconductor and systems thermal management.
THE MD&M COMPANIES:
TEA: Founded by Bernie Siegal, a 40+ year veteran and recognized technical leader in the semiconductor thermal field, its mission is to provide a central source for the products and services necessary for proper semiconductor thermal management.
Siegal is a founding member of IEEE SEMI-THERM and has delivered numerous papers and articles on thermal testing, simulation, and evaluation methods and techniques and is frequently sought out as a lecturer and expert in the field.
