Intel Wins Trial Over Chips, Dodging $1 Billion-Plus Blow
英特尔在芯片案中胜诉,避免了超过10亿美元的损失

April 22, 2021

 

Intel Corp. ducked getting hit with another multibillion-dollar damage award after a federal jury in Texas cleared it of claims it was infringing patents formerly owned by NXP Semiconductors NV on ways to speed up computers.

Intel doesn’t infringe two patents owned by closely held VLSI Technology LLC, according to the federal jury in Waco, Texas. The trial was held in the same courthouse where a different jury toldIntel to pay VLSI $2.18 billion over other patents last month.

This was the second of three trials in suits VLSI lodged against Intel over patents that until early 2019 were owned by Dutch chipmaker NXP Semiconductors. A third trial, also before U.S. District Judge Alan Albright, is scheduled to begin in June.

In the most recent trial, VLSI was seeking $3 billion in damages, saying the inventions were critical to Intel’s ability to make chips faster and with fewer energy requirements. That’s more than 3,000 times what the patents were valued at in past acquisitions, Intel’s lawyers argued.

Intel denied using any of the inventions, saying its own engineers have spent decades developing the chips that are used in everything from laptops to military fighter planes. It also argued that the patents didn’t cover new ideas even two decades ago, when they were issued.

Intel said in a statement that it was pleased the jury “rejected VLSI’s meritless claims that Intel’s cutting-edge processors infringe expired patents on MP3 player technology.”

英特尔公司(Intel Corp.)回避了另一项数十亿美元赔偿金的诉讼。此前,德克萨斯州的一个联邦陪审团澄清了英特尔侵犯恩智浦半导体公司(NXP Semiconductors NV)在加速电脑速度方面拥有的专利的指控。

得克萨斯州韦科的联邦陪审团说,英特尔没有侵犯少数人持股的超大规模集成电路技术有限责任公司(VLSI Technology LLC)拥有的两项专利。上个月,另一个陪审团要求dintel就其他专利向VLSI支付21.8亿美元。

这是VLSI对英特尔提起的三起专利诉讼中的第二起,这些专利直到2019年初还为荷兰芯片制造商NXP Semiconductors所有。美国地区法官阿兰·奥尔布赖特(Alan Albright)也将在6月进行第三次审判。

在最近的庭审中,超大规模集成电路公司(VLSI)要求英特尔赔偿30亿美元的损失,称这些发明对英特尔加快芯片生产速度和降低能耗的能力至关重要。英特尔的律师称,这是过去收购中专利价值的3000多倍。

英特尔否认使用了任何这些发明,称其工程师花了数十年时间开发用于从笔记本电脑到军用战斗机等一切领域的芯片。它还认为,这些专利甚至在20年前发布时也不包括新想法。

英特尔在一份声明中表示,很高兴陪审团“驳回了超大规模集成电路公司(VLSI)提出的英特尔的尖端处理器侵犯了MP3播放器技术的过期专利的无理指控。”
