Ping Keung KO
Beken Founding Advisor, President & CEO of Silicon Federation International Limited (SFI)
Ping K. 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.

Behzad Razavi
Beken Technology Advisor, UCLA Professor, World Renowned RF/Analog Authority

Behzad Razavi received the BSEE degree from Sharif University of Technology in 1985 and the MSEE and PhDEE degrees from Stanford University in 1988 and 1992, respectively. He was with AT&T Bell Laboratories and Hewlett-Packard Laboratories until 1996. Since 1996, he has been Associate Professor and subsequently Professor of electrical engineering at University of California, Los Angeles. His current research includes wireless transceivers, frequency synthesizers, phase-locking and clock recovery for high-speed data  communications, and data converters.

Professor Razavi was an Adjunct Professor at Princeton University from 1992 to 1994, and at Stanford University in 1995. He served on the Technical Program Committees of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) from 1993 to 2002 and VLSI Circuits Symposium from 1998 to 2002. He has also served as Guest Editor and Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, and International Journal of High Speed Electronics. Professor Razavi was also recognized as one of the top 10 authors in the 50-year history of ISSCC. He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, a Fellow of IEEE, and the author of Principles of Data Conversion System Design (IEEE Press, 1995), RF Microelectronics (Prentice Hall, 1998) (translated in Chinese and Japanese), Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits (McGraw-Hill, 2001) (translated in Chinese and Japanese), and Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications (McGraw-Hill, 2003). He was the editor of Monolithic Phase-Locked Loops and Clock Recovery Circuits (IEEE Press, 1996), and Phase-Locking in High-Performance Systems (IEEE Press, 2003).

David Tahmassebi
Beken Business Advisor, Serial Silicon Valley Entrepreneur (Resonext,Berkana, LedGine etc.)

David Tahmassebi brings over a decade of experience in Marketing and Sales of semiconductor products to Resonext in his role as President, CEO and co-founder. Prior to founding Resonext, David managed the Consumer Business Unit of VLSI Technology, a leading technology provider purchased by Philips Semiconductor. At VLSI, David led efforts to expand the sales of the company's source and channel decoding products. 

Prior to joining VLSI, David served as the Director of Business Development of the commercial divisions of Stanford Telecom, a leading telecommunications technology company. David was instrumental in forming the company's first commercial division and his leadership continued as the commercial operations grew to become four divisions, and ultimately Stanford Telecom's most valuable group. The businesses consisted of ASIC, Satcom, CATV and Wireless divisions, that focused on wireless LAN and Cable Modem channel decoding Integrated Circuits (ICs).

David received his Bachelor's of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1987.
