Emcore Appoints Industry Expert To Board

Ettore J. Coringrato brings telecommunications and wafer fabrication expertise to company

Emcore, a maker of InP optical chips, components and systems has appointed Ed Coringrato to its board of directors.

Ettore (Ed) J. Coringrato, Jr. currently serves as a board member of Nanowave Technologies, a manufacturer of microwave and millimeter-wave components and high power solid-state transmit/receive subsystems for commercial aerospace, defence, medical, communications and industrial applications.

He was a senior advisor to Nanowave from January 2014 to January 2016. Prior to that, he served as president, CEO and board member of CyOptics, from January 2005 until its sale to Avago Technologies in June 2013, and he was vice president of business development for CyOptics from February 2003 through December 2004.


From 2000 until 2003, Coringrato was co-founder and served as chief financial officer of CENiX, an optical start-up that developed high-speed optical modules using an automated manufacturing platform. Coringrato also worked for 18 years at AT&T and Lucent Technologies in its Microelectronics Group where he held positions in engineering, marketing and sales, strategic planning, business development and product management.

Coringrato holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering and Systems Management, and an MBA from Pennsylvania State University.

"We are very excited to have Ed join our board of directors. His extensive background in the telecommunications industry and expertise in wafer fabrication technology will be extremely valuable as Emcore continues to grow and expand into new markets," commented Gerald Fine, Emcore's chairman of the board.
