The mobile devices campaign of Arigna Technology Limited has snagged another defendant, BBK Electronics (OnePlus) (6:21-cv-01145), sued last week in the Western District of Texas. Various OnePlus smartphones are targeted with the same two patents-in-campaign, one received from Microchip Technology and the other from Mitsubishi Electric. Infringement allegations again focus on the alleged incorporation of the Qualcomm HG-11PG660-200 RF die semiconductor device, as well as the Qualcomm SDR865 transceiver and/or Skyworks SKY58258-11 front-end module. A September case against both Apple and Samsung and separate October suits against Alphabet (Google) and LG Electronics (LGE) remain in early stages.
Arigna Technology Limited has added separate cases against Alphabet (Google) (6:21-cv-01045) and LG Electronics (LGE) (2:21-cv-00377) to the litigation campaign that it began last month with a single Western District of Texas complaint against both Apple and Samsung. Again targeted, with the same two patents, is the incorporation into certain smartphones and tablets of the Qualcomm HG-11PG660-200 RF die semiconductor device (allegedly installed in the Qualcomm QTM525 mmWave antenna module), as well as the Qualcomm SDR865 transceiver and QPM5670 front-end module (FEM) (Google) or Skyworks SKY58258-11 FEM (LGE).
Arigna Technology Limited, one of several plaintiffs associated with Dublin-based patent monetization firm Atlantic IP Services Limited, has launched another litigation campaign in 2021, after three in a row targeting automotive defendants. The NPE has sued Apple and Samsung (6:21-cv-00943) together in a single Western District of Texas complaint targeting the alleged inclusion of Qualcomm’s HG11-PG660-200 RF die semiconductor device, as well as certain front-end modules (FEMs) and transceivers, within certain smartphones and tablets of the defendants. The plaintiff asserts two patents, one originating with Microchip Technology and the other from Mitsubishi Electric, characterized in the new complaint as generally related to “power semiconductor devices using high-frequency RF signals for use in mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and computers”.
