New Campaign over Former AMD/ATI Patents Launched Against Nine Defendants in Two Texas Districts

October 13, 2019

Vantage Micro LLC, an entity formed in Delaware this past April, has launched a litigation campaign, suing Huawei (4:19-cv-00731), STMicro (4:19-cv-00732), and TI (4:19-cv-00733) in the Eastern District of Texas; and Cirrus Logic (6:19-cv-00578), MediaTek (6:19-cv-00580), Microchip Technology (6:19-cv-00581), NVIDIA (6:19-cv-00582), NXP (6:19-cv-00584), and Renesas (6:19-cv-00585) in the Western District of Texas. Six patents—originally developed by either AMD or ATI Technologies (which AMD acquired in 2006) and generally related to technologies ranging from detecting a display monitor to managing shared memory resources, from accessing graphics data via multiple memory channels to “tracking the movement of masks” during chip fabrication—are asserted in overlapping subsets across the new complaints, with the defendants accused of infringement through the provision of a wide range of processors, GPUs, integrated circuits, and controllers.
