Elpida files lawsuits against Infineon, Best Buy
Computer memory maker Elpida has filed a lawsuit against Infineon and Best Buy, spurred on by a complaint at the US International Trade Commission filed against it by Infineon. With the complaint, German-based Infineon attempted to stop Elpida from importing and selling some of its DRAM modules in the US. This earned a lawsuit from Elpida, which alleged Infineon and Best Buy infringes on Elpida's semiconductor integrated circuits.
A second lawsuit has to do with infringing on Elpida's microcontroller technology as used in automobiles. In the two lawsuits, Elpida is seeking a permanent injunction from infringing its patents and seeks unspecified damages. [via EeeTimes]
