Jean-Marie has more than 20 years experience in consumer electronics and the communications industry. He was lucky enough to start designing GSM phones in 1994 and to witness the evolution of this industry until 2009, when Myriad acquired Purple Labs, the design house he had co-founded in 2001. Serving as Purple Labs COO involved raising funds, acquiring customers, managing roadmaps and ambitious projects, etc. Jean-Marie holds a Master of Science from ISIAL with a major in Artificial Intelligence.
Pascal has 20 years of experience in mobile communications and especially in radio architecture. He designed several generations of cellular radios and was the lead integrator on several radio chipsets. Pascal was also part of the founding team of Purple Labs and served as Engineering Director until the acquisition by Myriad. Pascal is a graduated engineer from Paris ESIEE with a major in Radio.
Philippe joined the team during the Purple Labs days, in 2004, where he was in charge of drivers development. Among others, he pioneered the use of gyroscopes and was instrumental in the adoption of Linux in smartphones. Philippe joined BeSpoon soon after its inception. Philippe holds an MSc from nearby Savoie university with a major in Software.
Franck also joined us in 2004 when he was hired at Purple Labs to handle radio development. Franck was involved in the integration of new radio capabilities into the phone: from 3G to GPS and Wifi. He anticipated and implemented several generations of radio technology until he realized the importance of ultra-wideband and joined BeSpoon in its early days. Franck has earned a degree from ISEN in Toulon with a major in RF.
