The head of engineering from high-speed memory company Rambus has jumped shipped to join Green Plug, which is plugging (pun intended) technology for universal power adapters that work across a range of consumer electronics and computing devices.
Kevin Jones, who becomes Green Plug's vice president of engineering, has experience in systems design and validation. He also has managed projects in which Rambus' intellectual property was shared with partner companies, a skill he will be required to call on often at Green Plug, which is out seeking companies to take up its open systems universal power interface. Green Plug has already licensed its technology to Innergie, which makes teeny, tiny power adapters. Here's more details on that.
Jones will work closely with Green Plug CTO Gus Pabon, who (among other things) worked at Apple where he was involved in power supply design for the iPod, iPhone and iMac.
