Xilinx Attack on Intellectual Ventures Patent, among Reexamination Requests filed Week of February 14, 2011

Darrin Auito | February 21, 2011

Intellectual Ventures shook up the patent world in December when it filed three separate infringement suits against a series of large electronics companies.  In one of the cases, Intellectual Ventures accused Altera, Microsemi and Lattice Semiconductor of infringing four patents programmable logic devices.  On Tuesday of last week, Intellectual Ventures filed an amended complaint to add Xilinx as a defendant.  Well, Xilinx is wasting no time, and on Friday it asked the Patent Office to reexamine one of the five patents-in-suit, U.S. Patent No. 6,272,646.  Requests for reexamination of the other four patents may come soon (see inter partes Request No. (8)).
