Mosaid Technologies on Friday announced that it has initiated patent infringement litigation against Nvidia Corp., Freescale Semiconductor and Interphase Corp. The suit was filed on April 7, 2011 in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Tyler Division.

In its complaint, Mosaid asserts that Nvidia, Freescale and Interphase have infringed, and continue to infringe certain patents related primarily to power management techniques, and microprocessor architecture. The accused devices include graphics processors, application processors, microcontrollers, and system-on-chip devices. These micro-components products are used in mobile, automotive, consumer and communications applications.

"Unfortunately, it is increasingly clear that many companies now require litigation in order to seriously consider taking a license in a timely manner, despite our continued desire to resolve patent infringement disputes through licensing discussions. In such circumstances, we are prepared to litigate in order to defend our intellectual property rights," said John Lindgren, chief executive officer of Mosaid.

Unfortunately, it's increasingly clear that patent trolls are killing the tech industry.
