Semcon Tech Sues Freescale over Global Foundries Components
Semcon Tech [NPE] filed suit against Freescale Semiconductor, alleging that Freescale’s integrated circuits (containing components fabricated by GlobalFoundries) infringe a patent related to a finishing process for semiconductor components. Semcon Tech has filed two prior suits since March 2012 against Lightwire and Qualcomm. Charles Molnar is the named inventor on the patent-in-suit, which he assigned to Semcon Tech in February 2012. The patent-in-suit is one of 22 issued patents that RPX reviewed as an open market opportunity (Molnar) in May 2011. 4/13, District of Delaware, no judge yet assigned, 1:2012cv00470.
