The new SGS Thomson Semiconductors has moved to pursue four of the Japanese majors, alleging infringements of patents held by its 1985 acquisition, Mostek Corp, Carrollton, Texas.

A similar suit by Texas Instruments against seven Japanese and Korean manufacturers won the US firm substantial royalty payments.
