Kilopass Appoints Jen-Tai Hsu Vice President of Engineering

Dr. Hsu Brings Unique Expertise to Kilopass Team for Next Stage of Development

SAN JOSE, CALIF.–– July 23, 2015–– Kilopass Technology, Inc., the leading provider of semiconductor embedded non-volatile memory (NVM) intellectual property (IP), announces Dr. Jen-Tai Hsu has been named Vice President of Engineering. He will report directly to Kilopass Chief Executive Officer Charlie Cheng and be responsible for managing all of Kilopass’ anti-fuse One-Time Programmable (OTP) memory engineering.

“I’m pleased to welcome Jen-Tai on board,” states Cheng. “As Kilopass scales in revenue and expands into new product lines, the executive team needs much more than non-volatile memory expertise to understand the customer needs, product development strategy, and go-to-market options. Jen-Tai’s experience and management training, especially at Intel makes this a critical addition to round out the Kilopass team.”

“After almost 10 years in SOC companies, I am excited to be back innovating in fundamental technologies,” says Dr. Hsu. “It’s a great time to be in memory technology business because it seems all memories are running up against difficult limitations. But it’s even better to be at Kilopass, with its proven track record of invention, close foundry partnership, and financial strength to invest heavily into the future. I am looking forward to making an immediate contribution.”

Dr. Hsu’s diverse semiconductor industry experience includes semiconductor process technology, flash memory technology, system-on-chip (SoC) development, High-Speed I/O, and IP.  Most recently, he was Vice President of Engineering at Pericom Semiconductor Corporation.  Before that, at Global Unichip Corporation (GUC), he was in charge of the overall IP business and development. At Intel Corporation, Dr. Hsu held senior management and project lead positions in both design engineering as well as product engineering for high-speed SerDes projects in chipset products and flash memory. He began his career at National Semiconductor as a senior process integration engineer.

Dr. Hsu holds more than a dozen U.S. patents and has published extensively in the field of semiconductor physics and analog/mixed signal circuit design. He received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan.
