Phase Locked Loop (PLL) Expert to Review Clock Generators

Case Description:

A phase locked loop circuit expert was needed to review both analog and digital phase lock loop (PLL) circuit technology in microprocessor clock generators for a patent infringement case. The patent related to a clock generator employing a circuit known as a phase locked loop. Phase locked loop systems, or PLL's, are widely used in radio, telecommunications, computers and other microelectronics. Clock generators employing a PLL have a wide range of application within the microelectronics industry.

For this patent infringement case, IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate a mixed signal integrated circuit design expert who design experience in both analog and digital PLL circuits. Expertise in the technical problems and conventional solutions associated with PLL clock generators was preferred.
