SAN FRANCISCOSemiconductor vendors Silicon Image Inc. and Analogix Semiconductor Inc. said Thursday (Dec. 4) they have reached a settlement and would dismiss two outstanding litigations between the two companies.
Analogix (Santa Clara, Calif.) has agreed not to market or sell HDMI semiconductors worldwide that are pin- or register-compatible with Silicon Image's HDMI-enabled products, the companies said.
Analogix also agreed not to enter into any licenses to provide HDMI technology for semiconductors that are pin- or register-compatible with Silicon image's HDMI-enabled products, except as necessary to fulfill certain existing customer obligations, the companies said.
Going forward, Silicon Image (Sunnyvale, Calif.) has agreed to grant Analogix a license to selected HDMI-related patents and other technology on undisclosed terms, the companies said.
Silicon Image first hit Analogix with a federal lawsuit on Jan. 31, 2007, alleging copyright infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, and unlawful, unfair and fraudulent business practices.
