Six Months After Microsemi Settlement, Sentient Sensors Sues Cypress Semiconductor

    Market Sector: Semiconductors

In March 2018, inventor-controlled Sentient Sensors, LLC began litigating a single patent generally related to a controller “that can freely be reprogrammed in the field to work with various inputs and outputs” and that “is similar to a ‘system-on-a-chip’…but…transcends the functional capability of a single integrated circuit”. The plaintiff accused Microchip (Microsemi) of infringement in an Eastern District of Texas case that ended roughly one year later, in April 2019. Now, Sentient Sensors has tagged Cypress Semiconductor (1:19-cv-01868) in the District of Delaware, accusing the defendant of infringing the same patent through the provision of its “Programmable System on a Chip (“PSoC®”) lines of system-on-a-chip (SoC) products including the PSoC 3, PSoC 4, PSoC 5, and PSoC 6 product lines”.
