Inventor-Backed Phenix Sues TI over LCD Color Correction Patent

January 24, 2018

Phenix, LLC (again using past assumed name Phenix Longhorn, LLC) has filed suit against Texas Instruments (TI) (2:18-cv-00020) over a single patent generally related to an integrated circuit for LCD color correction. The complaint accuses TI of infringement through the provision of integrated circuits that allegedly implement the plaintiff’s “programmable gamma (PGamma) correction” technology, with those chips purportedly used in certain Apple iMacs and in certain televisions manufactured by either LG Electronics, Philips, Samsung, or Toshiba. Phenix’s new suit follows a recent dismissal in a case filed against VIZIO, after roughly a year of litigation that ended with an Eastern District of Texas order transferring the case to the Central District of California for improper venue under TC Heartland.
