Kingston is a leading manufacturer of memory chips used in all manner of IT devices. Sun's and Tu's work in developing SIMM memory modules using older through-hole memory chips led to today’s memory industry. They sold the company in 1996, gave a $100M bonus to employees, and then bought the company back in 1999 at a fire sale price.
