Category: New Patent LitigationMarket Sector: Semiconductors
Last year’s suits winding down, Complex Memory LLC, an affiliate of Texas monetization firm IPValuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), has added another suit in 2018. The NPE accuses STMicro (1:18-cv-06255) of infringing four of the seven patents-in-campaign through the provision of mobile chipsets with certain features related to memory management. Those accused products include the STiH416 system-on-chip, targeted over its alleged inclusion of an ARM Cortex-A9 Core and its cache memory; certain STM STM32F100xx Series microcontrollers (MCUs), which allegedly include a direct memory access (DMA) controller; the Telemaco3P family of microprocessors (designed for automotive telematics), which allegedly include certain types of DDR memory; and the STiH series of systems-on-chip, targeted over certain energy conservation features of the Cortex-A9. The asserted patents, of disparate origins but all received from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV), generally relate to chip operation and memory access.
