Bandspeed, LLC has accused Intel (1:20-cv-01222) of infringing ten wireless communications patents in a complaint that joins two others filed in the Western District of Texas in 2020, one against Realtek Semiconductor in July and another filed against Delta Electronics in August. Throughout, the plaintiff targets the defendants over their provision of various products incorporating the Bluetooth Core Specification Version 2.0+EDR or higher and/or the Bluetooth Low Energy (4.0 or higher) specification, including certain wireless modules offering Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. The new suit follows a recent ruling in the other active case in the campaign that the defendant there, Cypress Semiconductor, having purchased the IoT business of Broadcom, nevertheless cannot benefit from a prior settlement between Bandspeed and Broadcom.
