Prior to Inovys, Paul served as vice president, general manager of the memory products division at Credence Systems Corporation.

We’re very pleased that an individual of Paul Sakamoto’s caliber has joined the excellent team already in place at DFT Microsystems, says Chris Arsenault, managing partner & chief operating officer at iNovia Capital, and a member of the board of directors of the Company. With DFT’s groundbreaking products now shipping into the market, it is imperative to have the right leadership in place to keep the momentum moving forward.

Prior to joining Credence, Sakamoto held various sales and engineering positions including vice president of sales at Micro Component Technology, director of sales at Megatest Corporation and six years of test and product engineering at Intel Corporation, finishing as a Product Engineering Manager. Paul received his BSEE/CE from Oregon State University in 1977 and is a native of Portland, Oregon.

I’m very excited to be part of a story that is as compelling as DFT’s said Paul Sakamoto. Not only do our technology and products dramatically lower the cost of testing high-speed pins, but they deliver a new level of capability and performance that is even more compelling than the price. I look forward to leading the company to take full advantage of this opportunity
