Paolo Cappelletti received the Laurea degree in Physics from the University of Milan, Italy, in 1978.
From 1979 to 2008 he was with the Central R&D Department of STMicroelectronics, in the R&D Center of Agrate Brianza, Italy, covering roles of increasing technical and managerial responsibility up to the position of Group VP responsible for Non Volatile Memory Technology Development.
In 2008, when Intel and STMicroelectronics merged their memory operations creating Numonyx, Cappelletti joined the new company as R&D VP in charge of Technology Development. In 2010 Micron Technology acquired Numonyx and Cappelletti is presently with Micron Process R&D as VP responsible for Agrate Technology Development.
Cappelletti has authored over 40 technical papers, has been invited speaker at international conferences and his holding over 40 patents in the field of Integrated Circuits and Non Volatile Memories. He has been Contract Professor at Milan, Bologna and Padua Universities and he has co-authored the book “Flash memories”, edited by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 1999.
