VLSI Technology LLC v. Intel Corp. (W.D. Tex. 2021)
The jury just returned in Judge Albright’s first patent trial of 2021. The result: $2.18 Billion Dollars to VLSI for Intel’s infringement. The patents were previously owned NPX Semiconductors, who obtained them by buying up Freescale Semiconductor and SigmaTel. NPX will apparently still receive a cut of the revenue – if the decision withstands both the JMOL motions and appeals. [Intel Jury Verdict]
U.S. Patent Nos. 7,523,373 and 7,725,759.
