HSINCHU, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Macronix International Co., Ltd. (TSE: 2337), a global leader in non-volatile memory solutions, announced that they have filed a new patent infringement complaint against Spansion International Inc, Spansion LLC, and certain of their customers in Germany for infringement of certain Macronix patents covering separate aspects of non-volatile memory devices, including flash memory. The named respondents include Harman Becker Automotive Systems GmbH, Ruckus Wireless, Inc. and Polycom GmbH. Macronix has taken this step to address the issues of Spansion's 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 Germany.

Over the past 25 years, Macronix has invested heavily 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. 

The above patents-in-suit relate to non-volatile memory technology and devices. In addition to monetary compensation, Macronix requests that the court issues an injunction barring Spansion's infringing devices or products containing such components from further importation into and/or further commerce in Germany.

This additional complaint follows those litigations in the United States against Spansion and/or its customers, and their respective decisions will be available in Q1 or Q2 of 2015. Macronix is confident in its patents and the above actions, and will continue to vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights.
