Judge consolidates cases in Peregrine’s patent infringement actions against RFMD

Peregrine Semiconductor Corp of San Diego, CA, USA, a fabless provider of radio-frequency integrated circuits (RFICs) based on silicon-on-sapphire (SOS), says that Judge Irma Gonzalez has consolidated its two lawsuits pending in US District Court that allege the infringement by RF Micro Devices Inc of Greensboro, NC, USA of Peregrine’s patented intellectual property relating to RFICs and switching technology.

The two lawsuits - filed in the US District Court for the Southern District of California – in February 2012 and March 2013 - claim that certain RFMD products infringe Peregrine patents relating to silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology for RFICs. In addition to damages, Peregrine seeks to permanently enjoin RFMD from further infringement.

Peregrine expects that consolidation of the cases will allow its infringement claims to move more efficiently towards trial and appropriate legal remedy.
