Complex Memory Campaign Hits Broadcom over ARM Architectures

December 14, 2018

Following a notice letter allegedly sent to Broadcom in April 2018 without response, Complex Memory LLC, an affiliate of Texas monetization firm IPValuation Partners LLC (d/b/a IPVal), has filed suit against the company in the Northern District of California (5:18-cv-07530). The complaint asserts five patents, generally pertaining to chip operation and memory access, already at issue in the campaign, with the NPE identifying certain Broadcom products “incorporating ARM Cortex-A9, A15, A57 and other ARM Cortex-A architectures” as the accused products, specifically identifying Broadcom’s “BCM5871X, BCM58712, BCM58713, BCM4707, BCM4708, BCM4709, BCM5301X, BCM11107, and BCM5862X families of products”. This new case joins suits filed in the latter half of 2018 against Renesas (in July), against Lenovo (Motorola Mobility) (in September), and STMicro (in November).
