Chairman & CEO

Dr. Sunny Siu was Managing Director, Greater China of Broadcom’s Processors and Wireless Infrastructure Business Unit from 2012 to 2015.  He joined Broadcom from its Netlogic acquisition where he served as President and General Manager, Asia Pacific.  Prior to Netlogic, he held the same position at RMI where he was also a co-founder, before it was acquired by Netlogic in 2009.

The acquisition of RMI was transformative to Netlogic's business. Thanks to RMI’s multicore processors, NetLogic’s market value increased significantly in a span of two years - culminating in a $3.7 billion acquisition by Broadcom in 2011.  Between RMI and NetLogic, Sunny grew revenues in Asia to over $100 million annually. The multicore processors developed by the RMI team were widely used by leading OEMs in wireless, networking, security, and SmartNIC applications.

Prior to founding Jaguar Microsystems, Sunny was a co-founder and President at ProphetStor Data Services, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise AIOps solutions for multi-cloud. 

Before entering the semiconductor industry, Sunny was endowed-chair Associate Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he was the founding research director of the MIT Auto ID Center, a pioneer in Internet of Things (“IoT”) research.

Sunny holds a Ph.D. and a Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, a Bachelor of Science (summa cum laude) degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from New York University, and a Bachelor of Engineering (summa cum laude) degree in Electrical Engineering from Cooper Union. Sunny’s academic research focused on networking and distributed computing, and received best research paper awards from IEEE and SPIE. In particular, Sunny was a recipient of the prestigious IEEE Browder Thompson Memorial Prize in 1997, which was awarded to the best paper among all fields published in IEEE journals by authors under 30 years of age.

At Stanford University, Sunny’s Ph.D. research focused on artificial intelligence and neural networks. Because of his outstanding research contributions in neural networks, Sunny received the U.S. National Science Foundation Young Investigator Award.  He was also the lead author of a research monograph “Discrete Neural Computation: A Theoretical Foundation” published by Prentice-Hall, with a foreword written by Dr. Marvin Minsky (pioneer in artificial intelligence).
