Longhorn HD LLC has filed a second wave in the litigation campaign that it began last May, suing Advantech (2:19-cv-00061), Inventec (2:19-cv-00063), Pegatron (ASRock) (2:19-cv-00062), Quanta Computer (2:19-cv-00064), and Wistron (Wiwynn) (2:19-cv-00065) in the Eastern District of Texas. The NPE asserts four of the seven patents already at issue in the campaign, targeting the defendants’ provision of hard disk drives with SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Report Technology) functionality, rack-mounted computers, and “hot-swappable” ATA hard disk drives “configured with Redundant Array of Multiple Disks (‘RAID’)”. Longhorn HD acquired the patents, themselves of disparate origins, in March 2018 from Intellectual Ventures LLC (IV).
