NXP Semiconductors

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (Nasdaq: NXPI) provides High Performance Mixed Signal and Standard Product solutions that leverage its leading RF, Analog, Power Management, Interface, Security and Digital Processing expertise. These innovations are used in a wide range of automotive, identification, wireless infrastructure, lighting, industrial, mobile, consumer and computing applications.

Using NXP’s MCU from the second year when studying at the University of Technology with the introduction from Mr. Kiem Huynh (Lecturer – the well-known coach in the Robot contest).

It would be the very good beginning, I quickly understood 8 bits MCU (LPC922, LPC932, P89V51Rx2), ARM7  MCU (LPC2000) and used them in some application when still being a student.

I connected Philips Semiconductors (Vietnam’s representative office) from 2004 and actually provided many support for them in the MCU contest 2nd and 3rd, with many useful information in my personal website.

I got their Certificated in the MCU contest 2005 and the Award for the contribution to the contest.

The interesting thing is, in the meeting with NXP’s team in June, 2010, I met Mr. Tan – Sales Director, who participated in the Celeration 5 years ago to give me the Award!  He was very supprised, and ofcourse, I was, too. The world is not big enough, huh?

We are now the good partner, not only with the NXP’s Singapore , but also the Vietnam office.

Doing business is just for doing business, but friends are the friends, aren’t you?


WIZnet (http://www.wiznet.co.kr) provides Hardwired TCP/IP chips, embedded Internet modules, external devices, and serial device servers in wired and wireless environments.

Sometime the business is going very well, just after some email from the unknown people, that’s the case I met with WIZnet, the company in Korea.

Meeting with Mr. Kit Wan in Shenzhen, China (2009) and WIZnet team (Mr. Jace Sohn, Mr. Kit Wan,..) in Dongguan, China (2010), there’s many stories to tell.

Keeping the good relation ship, my friends!

Creative power of the young people

I usually talk with the young people about the technology, about the creativity, about how to use the tool to describe the idea, expand freedom of the human intelligence. Talk with them whenever having chance, in university or even in the coffee shop.

One of the most important factor to become the successful person in technology field is the creativity, and young people, with full of the creative power, would be the main force for that developing…

Young man, motherland needs you to become the powerful country…

Hong Kong trip 2009

The business trip 2009 in HK was the first time I go oversea, many feelings for the first time saw the difference: the culture, the lifestyle, the infrastructure, traffic…

There’s many things to tell, about my thought, about my feeling…

Freescale and Arrow

Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. is an American semiconductor manufacturer. It was one of the first semiconductor companies in the world, having started as a division of Motorola in Phoenix, Arizona in 1949.

Meeting with Freescale and Arrow (distributor) in the beginning of September, 2010. This would be the great chance to know the future of Freescale and its plan to extend the Vietnam market.

Start with the DEMO9S08LL16 to understand how to use Freescale chip.
