Netlist files legal proceedings against SK hynix in courts of Germany and China
Netlist announced it has filed legal proceedings for patent infringement against SK hynix in the courts of Germany and China based on the infringement of Netlist patents in those countries by SK hynix LRDIMM enterprise memory products. Netlist also recently filed a new lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California asserting two recently issued U.S. patents against SK hynix RDIMM and LRDIMM products. The lawsuits in Germany and China are based on SK hynix's infringement of Netlist's patented distributed buffer architecture which was adopted as the industry standard for DDR4 LRDIMM. In the Central District, the court is scheduled to conduct a claim construction hearing on July 27 for the Netlist patents asserted last year. SK hynix recently filed a motion in the Central District asking the court for a partial stay of those proceedings pending completion of Inter Partes Review of the patents asserted in that action.
