Jim Marshall brings to Berkeley more than 35 years of high-technology business experience. Prior to joining Berkeley, Marshall served as CEO of American Integration Technologies (AIT)--a vertically integrated contract manufacturer serving the high technology semiconductor equipment, medical, consumer, and industrial markets. Prior to AIT, Marshall served as president and COO of Vitex Systems--an early stage capital equipment and materials company in the flat panel OLED display industry.
From 1997 - 2003, Marshall served as chairman of the board, CEO and president of Matrix Integrated Systems, Inc. Prior to Matrix, Marshall served as executive vice president and COO for Plasma & Materials Technologies, Inc. which he helped take public in 1995.

Marshall holds a bachelor's and master's degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University.
Soft-I/O is a powerful, low cost, single part number module that directly connects sensors and actuators to the central nervous system (control system) of machines, factories, and buildings. It is uniquely flexible and user-configurable--it can do the jobs of hundreds of existing narrowly purposed products, and solve thousands of different connection and control problems.
Berkeley Process Control, Inc. is a leading developer and provider of flexible automation solutions to applications as diverse as nuclear medicine and semiconductor fabrication. Berkeley capabilities include multi-disciplinary engineering expertise to deliver motion, process, and turnkey machine solutions.
