GigOptix chosen as ‘Best and Brightest’ technology leader by MDB

GigOptix Inc of Palo Alto, CA, USA, which supplies high-performance electronic and electro-optic components for 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s optical networks, has been chosen as a ‘Best and Brightest’ technology leader by MDB Capital Group on the basis of the novelty and industry impact of its patent portfolio.

“GigOptix’s intellectual property (IP) value and demonstrated innovation places it in the top 10% of the approximately 1500 technology small-cap companies as ranked by our proprietary IP intelligence database called PatentVest,” comments Christopher Marlett, CEO of MDB Capital Group, an institutional research and investment banking firm that focuses exclusively on firms with market-changing, disruptive intellectual property.

“Our research has shown that this elite group of companies that demonstrate above-average PatentVest metrics, such as PatentVest Tech Score and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of patent applications, have significantly outperformed their publicly traded peers. In addition, companies in this group have demonstrated higher margins and more sustained growth,” Marlett adds.

“GigOptix’s growth over the past 4 years has been driven by a combination of innovative product development coupled with focused execution in commercializing our pioneering products,” says chief technology officer Andrea Betti-Berutto. “We have a broad and solid patent portfolio covering our innovations in electro-optical polymer materials and modulator designs, high-speed analog amplifier design, flexible ASIC architectures, and we plan to leverage our intellectual property to maintain and extend our lead in bringing further innovative solutions to market.”
