A Personal Journey
From Singapore to California
Dr. Pantas Sutardja, the founder of LatticeWork, grew up in Singapore. The seed of his future was sown as a teenager with his increasing fascination with electronics. He eventually came to the United States to study Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley where he earned B.S., M.S., and PhD degrees. He worked afterwards at the IBM Almaden Research Center where he created the first CMOS read channel chip at IBM. This was just the beginning of a life innovating. He would eventual hold over 300 U.S. patents related to semiconductor and storage system technologies.
Success Innovating in Storage Technology
After IBM, Dr. Pantas Sutardja and his brother founded Marvell Technology Group Limited where he acted as Board Director and Chief Technology Officer for 19 years. Under his stewardship and technological vision, Marvell grew into a renowned storage semiconductor developer and manufacturer is valued at over $30 billion with over 7000 employees around the world.
Paying it Forward
As a believer in the virtue of technology, Dr. Sutardja directed his attention to helping the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. Through personal and philanthropic efforts he was integral in the creation of a number of programs, institutions, and partnerships at UC Berkeley. Most notably he established the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology. The Center is known for creating the Berkeley Method, an internationally recognized approach to teaching technology entrepreneurship to university students, executives, and tech professionals.
A New Way to Improve Lives
Motivated by the increasing reports of data either being stolen or exploited by those trusted to protect it, and driven by his desire for technology to have a net positive impact on the world, Dr. Sutardja founded LatticeWork. The self-funded company headquartered in San Jose, California now with over 100 employees around the world, invested and built its own cloud service infrastructure to power its debut Amber product line. Described as a personal hybrid cloud, these products and the infrastructure backing them, let people truly protect their digital privacy and data.
A World Looking for Options
AmberPRO and Amber X exist in a market filled with various cloud services. While the comforts these services provide are commonplace, understanding of the price paid in personal privacy to use them is less common. However, people are starting to wake up. If the Indiegogo launch of Amber X, which surpassed its funding goal in 1 hour is any indication, demand for solutions is high. LatticeWork and the Amber line of products are not simply another business for Dr. Pantas Sutardja, they are a continuation of that teenage enchantment with electronics and an embodiment of his personal mission to see that technology is accessible in its most noble and enabling form to all people. We look forward to the future of Amber and invite you to join us on the journey.
