A Delaware corporation, Auriga Innovations, Inc. has filed a lawsuit in the Western District of Texas against Intel Corporation, HP Inc. (HPI), and Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company (HPE) for patent infringement.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendants use seven of Auriga’s microprocessor and semiconductor patents without permission or license.
The plaintiff reportedly said, “that the evolution of microprocessors and the drive to create ever-denser chips with smaller components has fueled new trends, including the development of three-dimensional chip architecture using metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET).”
The plaintiff reportedly said that its construction contained a gate that is placed on multiple sides of the channel and controls the channel current at each such site to perform switching referred to as FinFETs.
The plaintiff reportedly said that FinFETs devices have significantly faster switching times and offer higher current density than planar technology.
According to the lawsuit, this innovation was patented and was infringed upon by the defendants.
The plaintiff reportedly said that the defendants are using and selling microprocessor products that incorporate FinFETs which has infringed on at least one of the plaintiff’s patents.
Auriga seeks jury, declaratory, and payment of injunctive relief and damages.
The case is ongoing.
