Macronix Files Patent Infringement Complaints with U.S. International Trade Commission Against Spansion, Inc., Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and its Customers

Macronix International Co. Ltd. and Macronix America Inc. announced that they have filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Spansion Inc., Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and certain of their customers at the U.S. International Trade Commission for infringement of three Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named defendants include, Beats Electronics LLC; Delphi Automotive PLC; Delphi Automotive Systems LLC; Harman International Industries Inc.; Harman Becker Automotive Systems Inc.; Harman Becker Automotive Systems GmbH; Ruckus Wireless Inc.; and Tellabs Inc. Macronix has taken this step to address Spansion's rampant infringement of Macronix's patent rights and the infringement that arises when Spansion's customers import devices containing infringing Spansion's products, including Spansion flash memory devices, into the United States. The three Macronix patents in suit relate to non-volatile memory technology and products. In this action, Macronix requests ITC issues exclusion order to exclude Spansion's infringing products or products containing such components from further importation into the United States. Macronix also requests ITC to issue general exclusion order to prevent other unidentified parties from importing into the United States their products that contain said infringing products. In addition, Macronix is requesting that the ITC issue cease and desist orders prohibiting further commerce in the United States involving infringing Spansion memory devices. Earlier this year, Macronix filed a separate seven-patent suit against Spansion in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. As demonstrated by the filing of this ITC litigation, Macronix intends to vigorously defend its valuable intellectual property rights.
