THOMSON DROPS MOTOROLA SUIT – IN SWAP FOR 68020 MASKS?

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola Inc has come up with terms acceptable to Thomson SA of France to settle Thomson’s $500m-plus lawsuit that alleged breach of contract in Motorola’s failure to supply it with masks for the 68020 microprocessor – but it is not certain that Thomson will be getting the masks or something less. According to Electronic News, in its 10Q filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, Motorola says that the suit is settled, and that it will be supplying Thomson with limited technical assistance in return for cash. Thomson agrees to drop the suit filed in Paris where Motorola would have argued lack of Thomson parts of equal value to the 68020.
