Chevallier’s 20 Years of NVM Engineering Management Experience To Expand Kilopass’ Scope and Bandwidth in NVM Business

Santa Clara, Calif. – July 15, 2014Kilopass Technology Inc., a leading provider of semiconductor logic embedded non-volatile memory (eNVM) intellectual property  (IP), today announced the appointment of Christophe Chevallier as Vice President  of Engineering. He will report to Harry Luan, who has been promoted to be the Sr.  VP of R&D at Kilopass. Christophe will be responsible for the existing Kilopass OTP  engineering operations, as well as all patent related efforts.

“We are thrilled to have Christophe join our expanding advanced memory design team,” said Kilopass’ Harry Luan. “His expertise and experience in non-volatile memory  development at Rambus, Unity Semiconductor, and Micron will greatly expand the  engineering management team’s ability to address the business expansion needs.”

“I am excited to be joining Kilopass, the company that pioneered the embedded  non-volatile memory (eNVM) business since 2001,” said Chevallier. “What makes  engineering compelling as a profession is the development of technology and  methodology breakthroughs. I’m looking forward to applying all my skills to doing just that at Kilopass, so that our engagement with 150 plus customers through all the  foundry partners can be further automated, stream-lined and expanded.”

Chevallier’s engineering career spans over two decades beginning with major  semiconductor companies Catalyst Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics and AMD.  He joined Micron in the early 1990s where he led the development of flash memory products. At Unity Semiconductor he defined novel cross point array concepts for selection, decoding, and sensing of Unity’s proprietary Resistive RAM (ReRAM)  technology. After Rambus acquired Unity, he continued to lead the ReRAM program  until end of 2013. He is an expert in all aspects of patent and legal process, with  over 235 patents in memory design in his name and is a frequent speaker at major  semiconductor and memory conferences.
