Gene Selven & Associates Acquires Chip Scale Review Magazine
Posted on April 23, 1999Gene Selven & Associates Inc. has acquired the assets of Chip Scale Review, a leading electronics industry publication devoted to advanced integrated circuit packaging and test, from Tessera, San Jose. GS&A, a market research and publisher's representative firm, has been responsible for Chip Scale Review's advertising sales since last November.
Now in its third year of publication, Chip Scale Review was started by Tessera, a developer of specialized integrated circuit packaging technology, as a way to promote the infrastructure for chip-scale packaging.
Gene Selven, president of GS&A, has assumed the post of publisher from Dr. Thomas Di Stefano, Tessera's founder. Ron Iscoff, the magazine's founding editor, continues in that post and has also been named associate publisher.
"With its separation from Tessera, Chip Scale Review can now fulfill its destiny as a truly independent, advertiser-supported journal," said Selven. "Readers will soon begin to notice significant improvements to the publication that will affect everything from editorial content to circulation," he added.
