Today the HiWire Consortium, a non-profit corporation supporting the advancement and adoption of HiWire™ Active Electrical Cables (AECs), announced the organization’s initial Board of Directors. The board and officers will direct the consortium’s efforts to facilitate the development of high-quality compatible HiWire AEC devices and promote end-user demand for HiWire AEC products through increased public awareness.
The three-member board includes:
Sheng Huang, President and Board Member, HiWire Consortium
Sheng Huang is the President of the HiWire Consortium and Director of Applications Engineering at Credo, focusing on high-performance and low-power Ethernet solutions at 56G and 112G PAM4 line rates for Chip-to-Chip, Backplane, and Line Card, Optical Modules and Copper Cable Connectivity.
Before joining Credo, Sheng spent 17 years at Marvell Semiconductor as Director of Technical Marketing and Field Applications Engineering supporting product definition, new customer engagements, and customer bringup. Sheng has an MS in Electrical Engineering from UC Irvine.
Elad Alon, Ph.D., Board Member, HiWire Consortium
After completing his Master’s and Doctorate in electrical engineering at Stanford University. Dr. Elad Alon joined the University of California at Berkeley in 2007 as a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences and also serves as the co-director of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC).
He has held founding, consulting, or visiting positions at Blue Cheetah Analog Design, Locix, Lion Semiconductor, Cadence, Xilinx, Sun Labs, Intel, AMD, Rambus, Hewlett Packard, and IBM Research, where he worked on digital, analog, and mixed-signal integrated circuits for computing, high-speed communications, and test and measurement.
Elad and his collaborators have been recognized with a number of awards for their research contributions to energy-efficient integrated systems, including the circuit, device, communications, and optimization techniques used to design them.
Jri Lee, Ph.D., Board Member, HiWire Consortium
Dr. Jri Lee received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), CA, USA, in 2003, and he joined National Taiwan University as a professor of electrical engineering since 2004. He has published more than 50 technical papers and holds tens of patents. He is a frequent winner of technical awards, and has served as a technical program committee member at ISSCC, VLSI Symposium, A-SSCC, and ESSCIRC.
Jri’s research interests include wireless and wireline communication circuits, ultra high-speed optical data links, millimeter-wave circuits, and blockchain associated techniques. He is the founder and CEO of Midasmicro Inc. and Midas Labs Inc.
