Mr Kwok has been working in the semiconductor industry since 1979, with extensive trend-setting and start-up experiences (at IDT, Quality Semiconductor Inc., PMC-Flash and NetLogic Microsystems Inc.), covering business developments, cutting-edge technology developments and applications, IP portfolio developments and licensing, manufacturing operations, as well as product developments and product engineering.

He played a critical role bringing 2 disruptive technologies mainstream, laying the foundation for the Information Technology Era: CMOS for Moore’s Law scalability and Network Search Engine/Knowledge Based Processor for Metcalfe’s Law scalability.

His IP experiences covered in 1989 at Quality Semiconductor Inc. with tech transfers to Japanese strategic partners, then extended to technology licensing to top-tier companies at Programmable Microelectronics Corp. from 1996 to 1998. The highlight of his IP experiences was being the Founding CIPO at NetLogic Microsystems Inc.
