ParkerVision Files Second Patent Infringement Suit against Qualcomm, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., HTC Corporation and HTC America, Inc

ParkerVision, Inc. announced that it has filed a second patent infringement complaint against Qualcomm Incorporated. The complaint, filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, alleges that Qualcomm Incorporated, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., HTC Corporation and HTC America, Inc. have and continue to make, use, import into the United States, and sell integrated circuits that infringe seven ParkerVision patents. These patents, which were granted for different technologies than the patents in ParkerVision's first infringement case against Qualcomm, relate to radio frequency up-conversion of electromagnetic signals, systems for control of multi-mode, multi-band communications, baseband innovations including control and system calibration, and wireless protocol conversion. ParkerVision is seeking unspecified monetary damages from the Defendants as well as a permanent injunction. ParkerVision is also seeking a finding of willful infringement against Qualcomm based on its alleged prior knowledge of certain of the patents in this case.
