Spansion Files Multiple Petitions with the U.S. Patent Office Challenging Validity of Macronix's Patent Claims

Spansion Inc. announced it has filed petitions with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) to invalidate the patents that are being asserted against Spansion by Macronix International Co. Ltd. and Macronix America Inc. in an investigation, No. 337-TA-909, that is currently pending at the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). In its petitions, Spansion challenges the validity of three patents - U.S. patent numbers 6,552,360, 6,100,557 and 6,002,630. These patents address technologies directed to circuit designs and circuit layouts, which have long been known and used in the semiconductor industry. The PTAB's decision on granting these petitions is expected in early 2015.

Spansion Inc. Expands Traveo Automotive Microcontroller Product Family with New CAN FD Interface Offerings

Spansion Inc. started shipping samples of its Spansion Traveo automotive microcontroller S6J3100 series incorporating the high-performance CAN FD interface for enhanced in-vehicle networking. The new offering in the product family is focused on various automotive applications including body control module (BCM), heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). Bosch invented the CAN standard many years ago and since then worked to improve in-vehicle communication through innovative solutions. Bosch introduced CAN FD as a seamless upgrade of the classic CAN technology the first time at the International CAN Conference in 2012. Like classic CAN, CAN FD enables highly reliable vehicle control, taking advantage of higher data rates with only a small impact on current software and applications. Spansion has started to supply leadership MCU products equipped with CAN FD. Features of the Spansion Traveo S6J3110 series: High-end 32-bit MCU for body control: Spansion leads the industry by integrating the microcontroller with the ARM Cortex-R5 core and with Bosch's advanced vehicle-mounted network technology CAN FD (maximum 5Mbps: S6J3110 series). It delivers high-speed vehicle communication while retaining compatibility with conventional CAN (maximum 1Mbps). Equipped with optimal macro for body control: The microcontroller is embedded with Spansion's top-class high-capacity flash memory (4MB) as internal memory. This flash memory enables readout after one wait for access from the CPU. Furthermore, the 144MHz high-speed operation is possible using a single power supply. Efficient utilization of CPU performance realizes high-speed memory access and low-power consumption. Security function: In addition to conventional Flash security, which protects data stored in the microcontroller, the S6J3110 series is equipped with SHE specification ver 1.1). The key management housed within the microcontroller is separated using hardware and an authentication function. This prevents data modification, theft and invalid access to the vehicle network. Partial wakeup: Normally, when A/D conversion is performed from the low power-consumption mode, the CPU is interrupted and the system returns to normal operation. Afterwards, it is necessary to start the A/D converter from the CPU. However, when using partial wakeup, power is cut to items other than the Real Time Clock (RTC). Then, once the RTC performs a specified count, the A/D converter is started and conversion begins without passing through the CPU. If conversion results are not within the scope of set values, it is possible to start the CPU through interruption. Partial wakeup makes it possible to lower power consumption even further when periodically checking for sensor malfunctions.

Macronix International Co., Ltd. and Macronix America, Inc. Files Additional Patent Infringement Complaints with USITC Against Spansion, Inc. Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and its Customers, and Seeks Exclusion Order as Well as Cease and Desist Orders

Macronix International Co. Ltd. and Macronix America Inc. announced that they have filed a new patent infringement complaint against Spansion Inc., Spansion LLC, Spansion (Thailand) Ltd. and certain of their customers with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) for infringement of four Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named respondents include Aerohive Networks Inc., Allied Telesis Inc., Ciena Corporation, Delphi Automotive PLC and Delphi Automotive Systems, LLC, Polycom Inc., Ruckus Wireless Inc., ShoreTel Inc., Tellabs Inc. and/or Tellabs North America Inc., and TiVo Inc. Macronix has taken this step to address Spansion's rampant infringement of Macronix's patent rights as well as the infringement that arises when Spansion's customers import products containing infringing Spansion's devices, including Spansion flash memory devices, into the United States. Over the past 25 years, Macronix has invested in the research and development of non-volatile memory technology. As a result of those investments, Macronix has been granted more than 5,400 patents world-wide and more than 2,100 in the United States. In a 2011 analysis conducted by The Patent Board, Macronix ranked 18th worldwide, and first in Taiwan for patent strength in the semiconductor industry.
