Speaker Bio

Chris Rowen was a member of the founding team at MIPS. Filling a variety of roles, he became VP of microprocessor development and head of their European operations when Silicon Graphics acquired the company. In 1996 he moved back to California to be VP and GM of Synopsys' Design Re-Use Group. He left Synopsys to start Tensilica because he had an idea for a unique processor architecture that was designed, from the beginning, to be easily and automatically configurable and extensible.
