I have more than 7 years' experiences in the semiconductor and electrical industry, cover the industry value chains from Application, Design verification, System Validation and Product test in consumer, computer and communication fields. Through MBA studying from 2011, good understanding to semiconductor industry and industry analysis.
Semiconductor Veteran of over 20 years working at Intel and several prominent startups like Cyrix and Transmeta. I was a co-founder in an FPGA startup for nearly 5 years and now work with a leading edge non-volatile memory startup building Resistive RAM memories, which will eventually take the place of Flash as a lower power, higher performance and more economical solution.
I write occasionally on the mobile markets and the semiconductors that power them. Transmeta was the company that first highlighted the need for all day computing in the PC market. I was proud to be a part of the launch of the first truly low power x86 processor, which Intel then had to address.
