Kevin Lin / Vice President
Mr. Lin joined some IC design companies in succession in order to cultivate the professional experiences for product developments. From Mar. 2004 to Feb. 2005, he worked with Topro Technology Corporation, as a researcher. He developed the algorithm and the hardware architecture of adaptive 3-D noise reduction for LCD TV. From Mar. 2005 to Feb. 2006, he was with Winbond Electronics Corporation, as a researcher. His major tasks focused on the chip design and the algorithm development for a large size LCD timing controller. From July 2005 to now, he joined Avisonic Technology Corporation, as a VLSI architect. He mainly developed the SOC (system-on-chip) architecture of MPEG-4 ASP and designed the 3-D motion estimation with the proposed Dual-Search-Windows technique and current Fish-eye lens distortion compensation IC. His current job focuses on product-development / marketing-analysis / sales-strategy in Avisonic Technology Corporation now. Mr. Lin received the MS degree and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Control Engineering from National Chiao Tung University, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2003, and 2007, respectively. He received the third prize for the contest on Silicon Intellectual Property Design (Hard IP section), Ministry of Education, Taiwan, in 2003. His current research interests are biomedical-electronics SOC design, capsule gastrointestinal (GI) image processing, video compression processing, DSP (digital signal processing) chip design, optimization of VLSI architecture, and memory circuit design.
