Avago drops patent lawsuit regarding optical navigation technology against Cypress

SAN JOSE, USA: Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that Avago Technologies, Inc. has dropped its lawsuit against Cypress. The lawsuit (case number 1:11-cv-00071-SLR), filed in US District Court in Delaware, had claimed that Cypress’s OvationONS products infringed on Avago optical navigation patents. OvationONS products enable finger navigation in handheld devices. Cypress paid no damages and admitted to no infringement in the case.

Cypress uses its own, patented OptiCheck technology, which the company has invested tens of millions of dollars to develop, in the OvationONS products. OptiCheck is a proprietary, speckle-based two-dimensional comb array technology.

“We’re pleased to put this matter to rest,” said T.J. Rodgers, president and CEO of Cypress. “This is a prime example of the strength of our IP portfolio, and a validation of our efforts to protect our fast-growing user-interface business. Our continuous innovation brings differentiated technologies that enable our customers to produce market-leading products.”
