PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Dr. Bandy joined the National Security Agency in 1967, and spent his career in all aspects of microelectronics, including integrated circuit (IC) design, fabrication, and testing. He started and ran the first in-house IC fabrication facility in the mid 70’s.

In 1985 he was detailed to DARPA where he managed a $30M/year microelectronics research program that encompassed projects at over 20 research institutions in the areas of computer-aided design of electrical and mechanical systems, computer-aided manufacturing, and technology infrastructure. His tour was extended in 1988 to serve as the first program manager of the newly formed $200M/year SEMATECH industry and government consortium to develop the next generations of production equipment.

In 1989 he was designated Executive Director of the National Advisory Committee on Semiconductors, a presidential committee mandated by Congress to study the state of the U.S. semiconductor industry and to make recommendations.

In 1990 he returned to the NSA to become Director of the Microelectronics Research Laboratory. In 1999 he retired from NSA and co-founded Matrics Technology Systems, Inc., for the development and production of low-cost, high-performance Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag technology and product. Matrics was bought by Symbol Technologies, Inc. in 2004 for $230M. He left Symbol in May 2006 to co-found Innurvation, which developed innovative technologies for swallow-able diagnostic endoscope capsules and is currently seeking funding for human trials.

In May 2015, he co-founded Matrics2 Inc for development of a massively parallel integrated circuit assembly system for high-volume production of very low cost Near Field Communication (NFC) TAPs for the Internet of Everything market.
