At the end of November Memory Integrity added four new defendants to an assertion campaign begun earlier in the month. Archos, Barnes & Noble, Hisense, and Microsoft are the most recent companies against whom patent 7,296,121 has been asserted. The patent-in-suit relates to a computer system with a plurality of interconnected processing nodes and is involved in more than 20 suits. Memory Integrity alleges that these defendants, like those previously sued, sell products that incorporate infringing multicore processors.
