Dr. Byung-Kyu Park
Vice President of Process Integration and Product Engineering
Byung Park has more than 20 years of experience in thin film transistors and flat panel technology. Byung received his B.A.Sc. and Ph.D. in Computer & Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo, where he learned that he was not really good enough at math and arithmetic to become a software engineer. Instead, he discovered that he had enough patience to learn from repeated mistakes and finally made his first set of working thin film transistors and diodes.
Throughout his career, he led many R&D projects, such as improving DQE (QE) of the imaging detectors and design/integration of the advanced (next generation) imaging array architectures, including metal oxide TFT integration. Byung first joined dpiX in 2001 as a process integration engineer. In Colorado Springs, where he rejoined in 2009, Byung is responsible for NPI (New Product Introduction) – from the concepts of new application from the customers to the product realization in the manufacturing line, as well as for product design and process integration. From managing his projects, Byung learned that companies must stay innovative, but also profitable, at the same time.
After moving to Colorado from California, Byung tries to be more active with mountain activities such as camping, fishing, rafting, mountain biking and skiing. Every year he takes his family to camping trips where he challenges himself to catch at least one fish a day.
