I am not comfortable with this behaviour either.

Why do you think so? Reasons?

The comment about Mosaid being a patent troll is correct. Patents are intended for people who actually make stuff. Mosaid has a history of launching lawsuits and not making any products.

A year ago, Cisco was suited for PoE infringement almost a year ago. Now, there is another case. The previous case is controversial. What's this new patent infringement is about?

Wayne_h, thanks for the history! I had no idea of the origin of the memory designs. I am wondering if the lawsuit involves the general use of POE or some specific technical implementation or features for the particular devices targeted in the lawsuit? Anyone know the particulars?

Ride To Work needs to learn some history of the Semiconductor industry. Mosaid pioneered the analysis and forensic reverse-engineering of memories (initially) and later processors, assisting and providing data to semiconductor companies in patent infringement lawsuits (for example, when a competitor comes out with a strikingly similar product 9 months after some key personnel leave for the competitor). Eventually Mosaid developed their own memory designs which they licenced to numerous semiconductor companies. Today ALL of the Korean and Japanese DRAM makers (plus a few others) manufacture Mosaid designs, not their own designs. The analysis and reverse-engineering part of the business was spun off into a separate company, Semiconductor Insights which was later purchased by the UBM Techinsights conglomerate.

Just a bad season for Cisco. Hope all these do not break this formidable company

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
