Infineon files patent infringement suit against Elpida

Seeks to block Elpida from importing and selling certain DRAMs in the US

By CBR Staff Writer

German Chipmaker Infineon Technologies and its subsidiary Infineon Technologies North America have filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission (ITC) against Elpida Memory seeking to prevent Elpida from importing and selling certain DRAM semiconductors and products in the US.

In a complaint filed on February 19, 2010, Infineon claims that Elpida has infringed four of its patents covering key inventions in semiconductor processing and device manufacturing.

Prof. Dr. Hermann Eul, member of the management board of sales, marketing, technology and R&D at Infineon Technologies, said: “Infineon has always been at the forefront of advanced semiconductor processing technologies. We will protect our intellectual property rights, which arise from our commitment to cutting-edge research and development.”

The Infineon’s complaint with the ITC seeks an exclusion order that operates to bar from entry into the US infringing DRAM semiconductors and products that are imported by or on behalf of Elpida.
