Somewhat odd that M/A-Com would buy a company in the midst of IP litigation. It could be that they were far along in the acquisition process and took it to its conclusion; it could be that their due diligence revealed Optomai’s IP as original and robust and there is no merit to GigOptix’s claims. They may also have some wording in the Sale Agreement that allows them to pull out or get some form of financial discount, if proved that Optomai did violate some other company’s IP. Either way, the burden will be on Optomai’s employees to prove they haven't infringed, since they came out of Gigoptix and started a company that makes similar products.
