Mark Ramsbey graduated from Purdue University in 1983 with a B.S. in Honors Physics and from the University of Illinois in 1990 with a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics. In 1990 he joined Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as a wafer fab rotation engineer working in the Submicron Development Center in Sunnyvale, CA. In 1999 he was responsible for AMD’s first process flow for nitride storage based Flash memory and led the process integration groups for the first four generations of Mirror BitTM Flash memory, work which resulted in over 100 patents.
