Motorola Semiconductor was researching MRAM at least a decade ago and was granted a large number of patents in the early years. Then MOT spun off it semi business, creating Freescale, which later spun off it's MRAM operations, creating Everspin. We can only guess which patents or area of MRAM technology this lawsuit is all about, but it is interesting that NVE is going after one of the early pioneers of MRAM technology. One has to wonder, why now?

Isn't Everspin just commercializing Freescale MRAM for several years now?
