Corporate Profile

Smart Filter Technology was developed and proven in the late 1990's when David Fries of the University of South Florida built the first photolithography exposure system that utilized this technology. Since there were no commercially available processing systems that provided a means of patterning non-silicon, non-flat materials, Mr. Fries needed to make his own equipment. His efforts were realized when the prototype of the SF-100 was assembled in his lab.

As other researchers saw the benefit of using Smart Filter Technology In their work, David Fries joined forces with Dr. Jay Sasserath to launch Intelligent Micro Patterning, LLC in 2001. Dr. Jay Sasserath became the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of the company, providing business management, sales, and marketing expertise to the organization. Dr. Sasserath was formerly a vice-president at Unaxis USA, with P&L responsibility for $90 M/year business units located in the United States, Germany, Switzerland, and France. Prior to Unaxis USA, Dr. Sasserath had over 10 years of corporate senior management experience at Sony Corporation and Hypres Inc. He holds a Ph.D. and MS in materials science from SUNY Stony Brook and a BS in chemical engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Our creative engineering and scientific staff continuously develops new technology. This group works as a team to deliver true solutions to our customers' most difficult technical problems. Our global sales and service organization helps promote the advantages and value of Smart Filter Technology. With offices throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, Intelligent Micro Patterning is well positioned to serve our customer's needs around the world.
