SAN JOSE, USA: IDT (Integrated Device Technology Inc.), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience announced a favorable ruling issued by the International Trade Commission (ITC) in a patent action brought by LSI Corp. against several semiconductor companies, including IDT. In the ruling, the ITC found that the patent claims asserted by LSI were invalid.
LSI had alleged that IDT and the other defendants in the action violated section 337 of the Tariff Act which prohibits the importation and sale of infringing products. Based on the finding of invalidity, the Court held that no violation of section 337 has occurred with respect to the asserted claims.
The full ITC Commission has until November 21 to determine whether to review the initial determination of the judge or allow it to become final.
