A Newer PACT XPP Entity Sues Intel over Patents from Portfolio Previously at Issue Against Altera, Avnet, and Xilinx

February 7, 2019

PACT XPP Schweiz AG has filed suit against Intel (1:19-cv-00267), asserting a dozen patents generally related to various aspects of multi-core chip operation. The complaint targets a range of Intel products, including Intel Core and Intel Xeon processors “with Sandy Bridge and above microarchitectures”, as well as any “other processors incorporating ring bus architecture”, Intel processors with Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, and others. The plaintiff is a Swiss entity, formed as “Scientia Sol Mentis AG” in July 2016, that changed to its current name roughly two years later. It received the patents-in-suit as part of a larger transaction of assets from PACT XPP Technologies AG, which asserted other patents from among those now held by PACT XPP Schweiz against Altera (subsequently acquired by Intel), Avnet, and Xilinx in a campaign running from December 2007 to mid-December 2015.
