American Semiconductor, Inc. Named Boeing 'Technology' Supplier of the Year

American Semiconductor, Inc. (ASI), the developer of Flexfet™ (an Independent Double Gated SOI CMOS Process) and Pure Play Semiconductor Foundry announced today that it has been recognized as a Supplier of the Year in the Technology category by The Boeing Company. ASI was one of two suppliers named in its category, and was one of 11 total companies honored last week for its commitment to superior performance and customer satisfaction.

The 2007 Suppliers of the Year were selected from a pool of 250 Boeing Performance Excellence Award winners. These companies – a select group among Boeing worldwide suppliers – hold 2007 Boeing Performance Excellence Awards for achieving silver or gold levels of performance, based on quality and delivery metrics over a 12-month period.

“We are proud to recognize the performance excellence of our 11 Suppliers of the Year, who have demonstrated that they are the best in the Boeing supply base,” said Steve Schaffer, Boeing enterprise leader of Supplier Management and vice president and general manager of Supplier Management for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Boeing is committed to rewarding, retaining and developing our top-performing suppliers who share our focus on first-time quality and on-time delivery.”

ASI provides unique wafer-scale semiconductor development to support Boeing’s emerging technology needs. ASI routinely provides advanced technology research for agencies including the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Energy, and NASA. Through aggressive process simulation, rapid development, high quality prototype fabrication, and a collaborative relationship with Boeing, ASI met and exceeded wafer fabrication delivery milestones in record time, despite the risks inherent with new technology development.

“We are extremely honored to receive this award in recognition of ASI’s services supporting Boeing’s research and development. Working to meet Boeing’s requirements with our on-shore fabrication capability has been a great experience,” said Doug Hackler, President and CEO of American Semiconductor, Inc.“ASI has a passion for wafer fabrication achievements and the opportunity that Boeing gave a small business to apply very sophisticated technology development expertise to solve a unique and novel technical challenge is most appreciated. We look forward to the opportunity to continue supporting Boeing wafer fabrication requirements.”

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
