Dr. Ko is a native of Hong Kong. He received his B.S. degree in Physics Hong Kong University in 1974, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) from the University of California at Berkeley, in 1978, and 1982 respectively. In 1982 and 1983, he was a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Laboratory. He joined the Berkeley faculty in 1984, and was Vice Chairman of the EECS department and Director of the Berkeley Microfabrication Laboratory before he returned to Hong Kong to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in August 1993, where he served as the Dean of Engineering from May 1994 to July 1999. In Hong Kong, he has been chairman of the Research Grants Council from 1993 to 2000, and a member of the University Grants Committee from 1993 to 1998. He was awarded the Justice of Peace in 1997.

At Berkeley, Professor Ko set up the Berkeley Device Research Group with his colleague Professor Chenming Hu, focusing on understanding the physics of MOS technology and devices, and developing CAD tools for the design of integrated circuits. Some notable results of this effort are the Berkeley Short-channel IGFET Models (BSIM’s) and the Berkeley Reliability Tools (BERT), which are being used worldwide by IC design engineers. In particular, BSIM was established as an industry standard in 1996. For his contribution to the development of device models used for IC design, Professor Ko was awarded the 2002 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Award. Professor Ko holds six patents, and has authored or co-authored one book and over 200 research papers. He is a Fellow of both the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Hong Kong Institute of Engineers (HKIE).

From October 2000 to April 2003, Professor Ko was on-leave from HKUST to serve as the Vice Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer of Authosis Inc., a venture capital firm he co-founded. Authosis’s investment focus is in IC fables design companies in China. He returned to HKUST in May 2003, but is still actively involved in funding and assisting IC design companies in China. In 2003, he joined in Wearnes Technology Group and took on Chairman and President of Wearnes Semiconductor focusing on the semiconductor development in China and an idea of collection of various top-notch fablesss IC Design house called IC Federation entered his mind. In order to speed up the federation’s growth, Prof Ko actively negotiated with Wearnes Technology Group and bought off Wearnes Semiconductor through the new investor, Silicon Federation International (SFI), an offshore venture company. SFI consists of more than 10 member companies and each of the investees is top-notch in its own area of specialization. In addition, they have technical capabilities that complement each other. The member companies diversify from various kinds of IC and collectively, they possess a set of universal building blocks based on which chips (System-On-Chips) that satisfy a broad spectrum of applications could be practically constructed. As such, they could collaborate and take on substantial product development projects that otherwise would not have been feasible. Federation’s family is growing and will go prosper together.

Professor Ko is also adjunct professor at both Tsinghua University and Peking University and at the same time, actively involve himself in the IC development of Shenzhen Industrialized Base.

Dr. Steve Fu

 

Dr. Fu is the Chief Strategy Officer of Fairchild Semiconductors, a leading power device and semiconductor company headquartered in the Silicon Valley. Dr. Fu is responsible for Fairchild’s corporate R&D team, strategic planning, new business and technology incubation, strategic partnerships, restructuring, investments and acquisitions.

Prior to joining Fairchild, Dr. Fu drove the mobile and automotive business and market development of Maxim Integrated Products as well as VMware’s desktop virtualization business, a leading Enterprise software company.

Before VMware, Dr. Fu was an early employee at Granite Systems, a Stanford-based startup company developing the world’s most efficient modular Gigabit Ethernet switches. The successful development led to the acquisition by Cisco Systems. Granite Systems products under the label of Cat4k grew to a multi-billion product line, one of the most successful acquisitions by Cisco. Dr. Fu went on to lead advance technology developments such as the world’s most complex network processors and the technology foundation for Cisco’s core-router and wireless product lines.

During the last four years of Dr. Fu’s ten-year career at Cisco, he developed and executed on board level strategies for Cisco’s emerging technology (video collaboration, advanced security and wireless), consumer (Linksys), China investments and semiconductor practices.

Steve received his Ph.D. EE from Stanford University in 2001, BSEE from UC Berkeley and is a recipient of the prestigious President’s scholarship given to the top students in America.
