Complex Memory Campaign over Patents Received from IV Keeps Rolling, Despite Multiple Apparent Settlements

September 16, 2018

The 2017 cases in its sole litigation campaign either stayed in light of settlement negotiations or having settled already, Complex Memory LLC has added a second 2018 suit, this one against Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) (1:18-cv-06255) in the Northern District of Illinois. Last month, the NPE, an affiliate of IPValuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), sued Renesas in the Northern District of California, while cases against SVTronics and Texas Instruments (TI) (on July 6) and Huawei (on July 26) were dismissed with prejudice in July. A November 2017 suit against ZTE has been stayed to facilitate settlement. All five cases have asserted the same five patents, broadly concerning various aspects of chip operation and memory access, with the suit against Renesas throwing in two additional such patents. At issue have principally been smartphones based around TI OMAP or ARM core architectures—in the complaint against Motorola Mobility, mobile devices “incorporating ARM Cortex-A53 and other ARM Cortex-A architectures, including Qualcomm Snapdragon, Kryo and Krait devices”.
