Cypress releases Alcatel-Lucent from ITC complaint regarding SRAM patent infringement by GSI Technology

SAN JOSE, USA: Cypress Semiconductor Corp. announced that it has filed a joint motion to release Alcatel-Lucent from Cypress’s complaint to the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding alleged infringement of Cypress’s SRAM patents by GSI Technology Inc. Cypress’s complaint seeks an exclusion order from the ITC that will prevent the importation of all infringing GSI SRAMs.

The ITC action against GSI lists known importers of products that incorporate the accused GSI SRAMs. Cypress has reached an agreement with Alcatel-Lucent which resulted in the removal of the company from the ITC action.

“We’re pleased to reach agreement with Alcatel-Lucent in order to remove another customer from this case,” said Dana Nazarian, executive VP, Cypress’s Memory Products Division. “This brings the number of customers who have been released from the complaint to four. We’re hopeful that we can reach agreement with other customers to respect Cypress’s intellectual property and thereby be released from the complaint as well.”
