LSI Gets Mixed Ruling in First Round of Funai Wi-Fi Case

LSI Corp. (LSI) got a mixed ruling in the first round of its patent-infringement case against Realtek Semiconductor Corp. (2379) and Funai Electric Co. over Wi-Fi technology used in televisions and DVD players sold under Sylvania, Magnavox and other brands.

Funai infringed one LSI patent and not three others, and Realtek didn’t infringe two patents, U.S. International Trade Commission Judge David Shaw said in a notice posted today on the Washington agency’s website. The judge’s findings are subject to review by the full six-member commission, which can block imports of products that infringe U.S. patents.
