Our founder, Mr Mark Chen, is a Master of engineering from a top Chinese university and a PhD candidate pf several major international universities. Before entering into the IC industries, he has been working in the power and energy industries, as well as some other interesting industries such as IT, linguistic, aviation, yacht industries for two decades in various roles and position such as design, development, consulting and engineering at some of the most powerful corporations such as Siemens, GE/Alstom, Babcock and the government of China.
He enters the IC industry relatively late, from about 2013. But he is a quick learner and in a few years he is now almost an expert. He sets his lifetime mission as one of the top designers of modems, especially modems used for satellite braodband Internet, because he thinks this technology will enable those without wired Internet to enjoy the freedom of information access, particularly those living in countries without free access to information.
talented in languages. With his fluency in English and German, he can communicate with most of the world without difficulty, although he is a born Chinese. He has also some comprehension in several other languages such as French, Russian, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, a little Esperanto.
Mark is also familiar with most IT technologies, incl cryptography, assembler, programming, scripting/markup languages, databases, web 3D technologies and online multimedia, online communications etc.
Still, businesses, jobs and money are not everything he is pursuing. Over the last decade (2007- now), he has been carrying out independent and self-financed researches on various topics such as the following:

Hundreds of study notes were written as a result of the above researches, unpublished.
After so many years of career, businesses and researches, he finally finds himself with the following mission:
Designing the Best Modem ICs in the World
How came that he is now an IC man ?
Why IC Technologies
The reasons why he finally came to IC research is that, of all technologies now available in the world, IC technologies are playing the single most important role in human development now, and for the foreseeable days. Without it, we will return back to the mechnical times.
But first he has done some mathematical studies in connection with IC technologies.
Of course, almost all math branches are useful in IC technologies, but what he is interested in mostly is the design stage, and particularly the physical design stage, and over there graph theory has been playing a big role, as such he has spent quite some time on graph theory for IC design.
His first topic was graph theory for channel routing, which is the last phase of the physical design and hence also the last phase of the entire chip design process. He has explored a great number of routing algorithms, particularly for FPGA based logic, but finally he decided not to pursue it further because he considers it a waste of time to focus on traditional, silicon based IC technologies, as it is approaching a scaling limit, that is, there is no way to improve the computing power after the CMOS scale reaches nanometer. In other words, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to produce more powerful processors based on the current silicon chips. Therefore one has to find new materials, new physics and new technologies.
And then he has tried a number of new generations of IC technologies, among them, quantum circuits, graphene based circuits, superconducting chips, resonant tunneling circuits, 3D ICs, spintronics based chips, to name a few. But I found that none of them are able to replace the current IC technologies, at least for the near future.
Nevertheless, he has studied somewhat intensively about the graph theory for quantum computing, and at that time I was particularly interested in the socalled Chimera graph applications to quantum computer, which was devloped by D-Wave, a Canadian quantum computer pioneer. In connection with Chimera graph was his indepth review of graph embedding and related branches of graph theory.
But this study was stopped about end 2017, when he determined to shift his focus from graph theory to really IC technologies.
After his studies of graph theory for IC technology was cancelled, he has decided to move on with his real IC technologies, and this time it is divided again into two parts: the new generations of IT technologies and the traditional, silicon based computer chips.
It is mentioned before that it seems no breakthrough will be achieved in the near future, however, whatever new generations of IC technologies are going to emerge, they must have something to do with quantum physics, because at the microscopic level, it is always quantum phenomenum which is playing a vital role in the working of the systems. Therefore, he decided to focus on quantum theory and quantum chips as the leading futuristic IC research direction. He plans to write an indepth review of quantum chips in the years to come, beginning with qubits - quantum bits over the next year or two.
On the other hand, he dons't want to forget his expertise in silicon IC technologies, therefore since August 2017 he has been working on a design project, first for a hardware monitoring chip, and then recently for a satellite broadband Internet chip. He thinks satellite Internet will eventually replace the current cable and optical Internet, at least in long run, it will be a scene to come, just as the radio broadcasting has replaced the wired broadcasting many years ago.
For this design project, he has to learn a lot, incl. satellite communication, radio (wireless) communications, and radio frequency modulation and demodulation. His current design project is titled "Chip Design for Satellite Broadband Internet (Satnet). Part I: Modulator and Demodulator (Modem) IP Core".
The above studies, both quantum chips and satellite broadband Internet related chip design, will remain to be his future orientation of research and design, at least for a decade or so. He will try to write something in these topics, and design some chips or at least some IP cores, as it is a popular fashion now in the industry.
As a longtime practitioner of IT technologies, he is skilled at major IT technologies, therefore he can provide a vast range of It services to you as well, whether it's coding in java, python or managing your databases, or it's web scraping or searching technologies. These expertise is also indispensable in chip design.
His other skills such as multilingualism will perhaps also benefit your company, and your business. Just pick one of his skills from the vast pools of his expertise, your company will be benefiting greatly.

Quantum Integrated Circuits
He has been also making some researches of quantum computer over the last years, and over the last two years or so, he's concentrating on superconducting quantum computer, in an intention to throughly understand all key aspects of the quantum circuits, from quantum theory, to quantum bits to quantum gates, quantum modules, qunatum circuits up to a quantum computer.
Therefore it is not a bad idea to share some of his thoughts and studies on those topics with his freinds all around the world and hope to become one day a real quantum physicist. :)
He has been reading hundreds of papers and books, and he has decided to write a comprehensive volume in SQ, with some of the following sections or chapters:
Types of Superconducting Qubits
Structure & Construction of Superconducting Qubits
Features & Parameters
Actions, Manipulations & Operations
Quantum Error Correction
Quantum Gates Based on Superconducting Qubits
Quantum Circuits Based on Superconducting Qubits
Quantum Computer / Quantum Processor Based on Superconducting Qubits
Manufacturing & Fabrication
Calibration & Characterization
Measurement, Control & Readout
Tests, Experiments & Benchmarking
Algorithms & Applications
And several chapters for other information and sources
Accordingly, a vast number of draft papers are prepared, for example the following documents list shows my depth of studies and drafting sofar:
He will first complete the Types of Superconducting Qubits section before moving on to the rest of the writing.
He is am just interested to know everything related to SQ, and try to gather together all relevant information in this subject and try to systemize and theorize the information he can collect. Several key questions shall be addressed such as: is quantum computer really achievable? How complex and difficult to build a realistic quantum computer? How long can this be realized? How many qubits are needed to build a compatible quantum computer with those on the market now? Which technology might be the most feasible? Etc etc.
