In Wake of Claim Construction Hearing, STC.UNM’s Semiconductor Fabrication Campaign Grows

March 31, 2020

GlobalFoundries (6:20-cv-00243) has become the third defendant in the active litigation campaign of STC.UNM, the intellectual property enforcement arm of the Board of Regents of the University of New Mexico, over a homegrown semiconductor fabrication patent. The plaintiff accuses GlobalFoundries of infringement through the provision of semiconductor devices manufactured at “several process nodes” (i.e., minimum physical feature size or line width), including the 12 nm and 14 nm process nodes, with the body of the new complaint highlighting AMD Ryzen 2000-series chips as allegedly made at the identified nodes. On March 13, 2020, District Judge Alan D. Albright held a claim construction hearing in the two earlier suits in the campaign, one each filed against Samsung and TSMC.
