Brian Rubow honored with other SEMI Standards leaders at SEMICON West 201

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – July 12 2017 – Brian Rubow, the Director of Client Training and Support at Cimetrix, Inc. was awarded the Leadership Award at the annual SEMI International Standards Awards Reception on Tuesday, July 11 during the SEMICON West show.

Mr. Rubow has over 20 years of experience in the semiconductor, electronics assembly, robotics, PV and HBLED industries, and has been a key contributor to the SEMI Standards programs throughout his career. He is well known in the industry not only because of his involvement in SEMI Standards, but also his role in training and supporting the many customers of Cimetrix equipment connectivity and control products over the years.

The Leadership Award, given by SEMI, recognizes those who volunteer their time and demonstrate outstanding leadership within the SEMI Standards Program. In addition to his personal technical contributions to the standards development process, Mr. Rubow spends a significant portion of his time training, mentoring, and guiding other members through his leadership roles on the committees. Specifically, Mr. Rubow worked on the initial development of the full suite of GEM300 standards and continues to guide its evolution. When the global PV and HBLED industries needed proven standards for equipment integration and factory automation, he led the process for creating those standards effectively and efficiently. More recently, he worked with a number of industry colleagues to define an open, common approach for documenting GEM interface capabilities and message streams, resulting in two new industry standards.

Mr. Rubow currently serves as the vice-chair of SEMI NA RSC (Regional Standards Committee) Organization, co-chair of SEMI NA TC Chapter of the Information and Control Global Technical Committee, co-chair of SEMI DDA, and GEM300 Task Forces, and Chair of SEMI HB-LED Equipment Communications Interface Task Force.
