NEWRACOM Divestment Gives Way to a New Acacia Campaign

August 16, 2021

In March, RPX flagged the assignment of hundreds of US patent assets from chip maker NEWRACOM to Acacia Research Corporation’s Atlas Global Technologies, LLC—which has just opened up its first campaign with suits against ASUSTek (6:21-cv-00820), Samsung (2:21-cv-00304), and SerComm (6:21-cv-00818). Each filed in the Eastern or Western District of Texas, Atlas Global’s complaints target various devices with Wi-Fi capabilities that are alleged to practice the e 802.11ax-2021 standard, identifying long lists of accused products including access points, adapters, cameras, desktop computers, e-readers, gateways, laptops, mini PCs, motherboards, phones, routers, set-top boxes, and televisions. An overlapping set of nine patents are asserted, all developed by NEWRACOM, a California-based fabless company formed in 2014 by a group of over 20 individuals from the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
