UK IP startup Agile Analog has hired the former president of GUC Europe as its new VP of Sales.
Christelle Faucon has over 25 years’ experience of working across the global semiconductor ecosystem, spending the last ten years as president of the European operations at leading global design house Global Unichip (GUC) and ten years at foundry TSMC.
Agile Analog, based in Cambridge, joined the Intel Foundry Services Accelerator IP Alliance Program in March and then the TSMC OIP IP Alliance Program in September to drive access to the company’s customizable and process agnostic analog IP product portfolio. These data converter, power management, IC monitoring, security and always-on IP solutions can be seamlessly integrated into any SoC, cutting both time and costs which are key issues with system on chip designs.
“It’s an extremely exciting time for our business. I am delighted that Christelle has decided to join us on our journey to revolutionize the world of analog IP. She will play a key role in taking our sales to the next level and accelerating the growth of our customer base across the globe,” said Barry Paterson, CEO at Agile Analog.
