Bill Kennedy is an expert in the field of Solid-State Lighting, Electronic Display & Photovoltaics. This includes all aspects of these technologies ranging from constituent materials, design engineering, manufacturing, marketing, sales, sales channel development and training. Previously I have served as: Founder and Co-Owner of eLUXtron™ & Tianda USA: Solid-State Lighting & Solar PV Power Products/Services/Consulting To World’s “True Green Energy™” Industries Toyota Motor Group: VP/GM Optoelectronics, Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd.; Director, Sales & Marketing Lexedis LLC (JV Zumtobel Group); Director T-Opto™ (JV Toyota Tsusho Co., Ltd.) Uniroyal Technologies Inc.: VP Sales & Marketing; VP Business Development, Uniroyal Optoelectronics LLC (JV of General Electric/Emcore/Uniroyal) (MOCVD Compound Semiconductor LEDs, Lasers, Microwave, Analog & Digital ICs). Teledyne Industries Inc.: Director/Founder of Teledyne Lighting & Display Inc. (Solid-State Lighting & Displays); Director of Optoelectronics (Sensors/CCDs, Photovoltaics, Displays, Fiber-Optics, SS Lighting) Teledyne Microelectronics Allied Signal Technologies: Director of, Fabricated Composites (Copper-Clad Laminates, Hybrids, Mass-Laminations and Structures, Planar & 3D Fabrications, Assemblies, PCBs/Multi-Layers, Exotic Materials, Prepregs) My experience and knowledge runs the gamut of these technologies: from epitaxial wafers; to die fabrication and testing; to micro-electronic packaging (including photo-conversion), modular integration and assembly (includes photo-initiation, photo-catalyzation and other system level knowledge). In-depth materials, process and various design elements, including non-imaging optics (NIO lenses, reflectors, sheet and films), thermal management (conduction and convection including MEMS techniques) and system level design criteria, are understood and practiced. Die, device, component, module and system-level testing, qualification and certification, methods and processes are known and accomplished. Experience in these technologies is global and in applications extends from niche to high-volume mass-production products. In addition, knowledgeable sourcing of materials, components, manufacturing contract initiation, program management and extensive understanding of IP, business development and financing, on a global basis, are also inclusive.
