Edward H. Green, III



Edward H. Green, III is, in his own words, a “geek” with 15 years of design engineering experience. It was the combination of intellectual challenge and being involved in the latest, cutting-edge technology that first attracted him to engineering. For Ed, a career in patent law was a natural progression.

His vast experience with digital electronics includes designing circuits found in SPARC® and PowerPC® architecture microprocessors, video compression boards, minicomputer memory controllers, missile guidance systems and satellite data acquisition systems. Having worked in both product design and research environments in the commercial computer and defense industries, as well as field work in the oil business, Mr. Green is also the co-inventor on four U.S. Patents. His engineering affiliations include IBM, Sun Microsystems, Olivetti, Lockheed, and Gearhart Industries.
