On the same day, the PTO granted inter partes reexamination against U.S. Patent No. 6,795,327 and issued an Office Action rejecting each claim. The ‘327 patent is assigned to NETAC Technology of China and is entitled “Semiconductor Storage Method and Device Supporting Multi-Interface.” The request was filed by SanDisk Corporation.
The PTO rejected all 22 claims as being anticipated or made obvious by each of four prior art references. Claims 1-20 and 22 were rejected as being anticipated or made obvious by each of two additional prior art references. Essentially, the PTO adopted SanDisk’s analysis of the prior art.
The ‘327 patent is not the subject of any pending litigation.
