LONDON EDA developer, Pulsic, is setting up a four member advisory board and named Roy E. Jewell, president of Magma Design Automation, and Peter Harverson, former vice president of Cadence Europe, as the first members.
Ken Roberts, chief executive officer, said, “Our goal in forming the advisory board is to bring together a high-level group of advisors with wide-ranging experiences in order to direct and advise us in a variety of ways. We aim to develop an open dialog with our advisors and both Peter and Roy have committed to helping us meet our corporate objectives.”
Roy E. Jewell joined Magma in 2001 as chief operating officer, later assuming the additional role of president.
