IC Knowledge was formed in late 2000 by our founder and president Scotten W. Jones. Scotten (Scott) has nearly 30 years of experience in the semiconductor and MEMS industries, 18 of those in senior management positions. He holds a BS in Physics from the University of Rhode Island, has published dozens of papers, books and book length reports and holds two patents. His career focus has been on manufacturing and process technology. Scott's responsibilities have included manufacturing, engineering, IT, technology development, finance and accounting. Scott has built or upgraded several wafers fabs and has extensive experience in manufacturing execution systems, cost modeling, IP licensing agreements, outsourcing and foundry relationships. Scott's management positions have included Vice President and Co-General Manager of a Semiconductor Division, Vice President of Operations at a Semiconductor Company and Vice Presidents of Engineering and Vice President of Operations at a MEMS Company. Scott is a senior member of the IEEE and is a lifetime member of Strathmore's Who's Who. In addition to serving as President of IC Knowledge, he also serves as a Director of the Georgetown Education Foundation.

Scott's approach at IC Knowledge has been to leverage strategic partners and sub contractors to create a small company with the capabilities of a much larger organization.
