NXP Files a Second Complaint Against MediaTek

November 4, 2021

In late August, NXP Semiconductors (NXP USA) sued MediaTek in the Eastern District of Texas, targeting the provision of certain Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 chips and naming retailers Amazon and Best Buy as codefendants over the alleged sale of devices incorporating those chips (including certain Linksys and Netgear routers). This past week, NXP hit MediaTek again (8:21-cv-01810), this time with a Central District of California complaint identifying MediaTek as the “Component Supplier Defendant” and codefendants Amazon, Hon Hai Precision Industry (Belkin), and Linksys as the “Downstream Product Defendants”.
