RFMD Announces ITC Lawsuit Withdrawn By Plaintiffs
News Release from:
RF Micro Devices Inc
18 October 2012
RF Micro Devices is pleased to announce that Peregrine Semiconductor has filed a motion to voluntarily withdraw the lawsuit it filed against RFMD in the U.S. International Trade Commission in February 2012.
RFMD believes the decision by Peregrine to terminate the ITC proceeding is in response to developments in the case that have consistently validated RFMD’s longstanding position that no infringement of Peregrine’s patents occurred, and that the validity of the asserted Peregrine patents is clearly in doubt. RFMD respects the intellectual property rights of others and takes care to avoid infringements.
RFMD has a strong intellectual property portfolio relating to RFICs and switching technology that RFMD has developed over many years. The Company is fully committed to its industry-leading product portfolio and plans to continue to vigorously defend its position in the companion case filed by Peregrine in April 2012 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California.
