sweeper mode that supports external or automatic triggered sweeps. The phase coherent frequency sweep mode can be used in test instrumentation, Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave sensors and automotive radars. Depending on the chosen Phase Locked-Loop bandwidth the one or two-way frequency ramp may be continuous, or in steps.


The HMC703LP4E offers superb phase noise performance of -112 dBc/Hz at an offset of 50 kHz and a VCO frequency of 8 GHz in fractional mode. Its Floor Figure of Merit is -230 dBc/Hz in fractional mode; a performance that is typically 10 dB better than the performance of its closest competitor. When tested with the HMC508LP5E VCO, the jitter corresponding to double side-band phase noise integration from 100 Hz to 100 MHz offsets is 70.7 fs. This jitter would correspond to an EVM of 0.35% at 8 GHz and a Signal-to-Noise Ratio of 49 dB.


Fractional synthesisers that set the channel step size with the fractional modulus often suffer from channel spurs. The HMC703LP4E exact frequency mode achieves exact channel frequencies with zero channel spurs, while double buffering enables strobed frequency hopping. The HMC703LP4E maximum PFD frequency is 115 MHz (in integer mode), which permits wider loop bandwidth, improved phase noise performance and faster locking/switching time. Typical in-band integer boundary spur is -60 dBc.


The HMC703LP4E maintains foot print compatibility for the main functions with its predecessor the HMC700LP4E. The HMC703LP4E is housed in a 4 x 4 mm plastic leadless surface mount package and provides excellent temperature stability over the -40 °C to +85 °C temperature range. Samples and evaluation PC boards are available from stock and can be ordered via the company’s e-commerce site or via direct purchase order.


MDB awards Kopin with “Bright Lights Award”


Kopin was one of the companies to receive a CLARUS Award for technology leadership and obtaining one of the highest number of granted patents.


MDB Capital Group, Wall Street’s only IP 98 www.compoundsemiconductor.net October 2011


Investment Bank, has announced the winners of its 2nd annual Bright Lights Innovation Awards held during the Bright Lights Conference at Le Parker Meridien Hotel in New York City on May 10-11, 2011.


Chosen from 40 of MDB Capital Group’s “Best and Brightest” small-cap companies, the award- winning companies represent IP leaders based a number of variables including, patent applications, patent novelty, quality, and impact and other factors as identified by MDB Capital’s PatentVest, a proprietary IP business intelligence platform.


Kopin Corporation was one of the companies to receive a CLARUS Award for technology leadership and achieved one of the highest Tech Scores and number of patent grants.


Bright Lights is one of the only conferences with an exclusive focus on companies possessing disruptive and market changing IP, providing institutional investors a venue to discover the largely unrecognized value of embedded IP.


Bright Lights is showcasing approximately 40 public companies ranking in the 90th percentile for their respective technology leadership from more than 1,500 small-cap companies with granted U.S. patents, as rated by PatentVest.


In addition to company presentations, IP industry thought-leaders are leading Bright Lights sessions, providing insightful analysis and discussions on innovation and IP monetisation topics during this invitation-only event.


Keynote speakers include:


David Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office


Paul Ryan, CEO of Acacia Research, one of Wall Street’s largest IP holders and licensing companies


Marshall Phelps, author, IP Hall of Fame member and former Corporate Vice President and Deputy General Counsel for Intellectual Property and Licensing at Microsoft


John Cronin, CEO & Founder of ipCapital Group, one of the foremost experts on IP development
