LEE, Kin-Hong


B.Sc., M.Sc.(Manc.), MBCS, MIEE, C.Eng, SMIEEE

Mr. Lee received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. (by research) degrees in Computer Science from University of Manchester in 1976 and 1977. Then he joined Burroughs machines (Cumbernauld, Scotland) and was involved in various processor design projects which include the Burroughs' machines' B80 and B90 ranges of computer. When he was with Burroughs' machines, he had invented a reconfigurable memory system. In 1979, he joined International Computers Limited (Manchester, U.K.) and had worked on a number of mainframe computer design projects. He had designed the floating point unit for the 3930 computer. He was also involved in a number of VLSI technology study projects. Pilot chips were designed, built and tested to evaluate the suitability of various technologies. One of the studies was to design a three chip set CPU for the 3900 family.

He joined Chinese University in 1984 and is responsible for the hardware and computer architecture courses. His current interests are computer architecture, Parallel Computing, Object Oriented Software, Multi-media applications and Chinese Computing. Between 1987 and 1990, he has successfully built a high performance workstation for the Hong Kong Industry Department for CAD/CAM applications. He has just completed the construction of a multi-processor workstation and is now working on the software system and a parallel language for this multi-processor.
