Pearl IP Licensing LLC is one of four NPE plaintiffs associated with IP Edge LLC to litigate former Cypress Semiconductor patents that the Texas monetization firm acquired from Monterey Research, LLC, a subsidiary of IPValue Management (d/b/a IPValue). Early in 2020, Pearl IP accused AT&T, Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile), and Verizon (Cellco Partnership d/b/a Verizon Wireless) of infringing a single such patent, broadly directed to a circuit that can recover from certain “overstress conditions”. With those three cases ending, this past December the IP Edge plaintiff sued HMD (1:20-cv-25220) in the Southern District of Florida and HTC (2:20-cv-01850) in the Western District of Washington over the same patent. Each complaint targets the provision of smartphones equipped with a Qualcomm processor featuring a Resource Power Management (RPM) circuit.
Pearl IP Licensing LLC, an entity apparently associated with Texas monetization firm IP Edge LLC, has sued Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) (6:20-cv-00260) over a single patent generally related to a circuit that can recover from certain “stress conditions”. T-Mobile is accused of infringement through the provision of certain “apparatus[es]”—identifying as an exemplary accused product the Motorola Z2 Force smartphone, targeted over its inclusion of Qualcomm processors with certain power and voltage management features. Pearl IP asserts current ownership of the former Cypress Semiconductor patent, which publicly available USPTO records indicate was received by IP Edge as part of a larger assignment from another NPE.
