Bell Semic Expands Number of Former Broadcom Patents in Its Campaign to Nearly 20

April 1, 2020

Bell Semiconductor, LLC (Bell Semic) has filed three new complaints in its sole campaign, over patents received from Broadcom in December 2017, two of the complaints amended and one original, that last one adding NXP Semiconductors (6:20-cv-00210) to the litigation. The plaintiff is a member of the Hilco, Inc. (d/b/a Hilco Global) family of companies; throughout this campaign, it has targeted the provision of various semiconductor devices (e.g., controllers, MCUs, processors, SOCs, transceivers, etc.), NXP with eight patents already in suit and two newly at issue. Amended complaints, filed just last week against Renesas Electronics and its subsidiary Integrated Device Technology (IDT), also brought additional patents into the campaign.
