The president of ULSI System Technology and an engineer have been accused of stealing chip secrets from Intel Corp. of Santa Clara.
Engineer Alfred Chan, 32, allegedly stole confidential Intel manuals when he was hired away by ULSI President George Hwang, 48, in August, 1987, according to criminal charges filed Monday by the district attorney’s office.
Hwang and Chan are expected to surrender on the charges today, Deputy District Atty. Kenneth Rosenblatt said.
The stolen documents contained secret information on Intel’s 80386 microprocessor and 80387 math co-processor chips, authorities said.
