Any more detail about what those companies has infringed? It will be an interesting result if finally Freescale win the law sue as those companies are really key suppliers in TV sectors. Will Freescale then take back the lost share?

I wonder, what is the likelihood of a successful decision for Freescale? How many types and what kind of numbers of TV sets are we talking about here? The article does not say if there were any behind the scenes discussions between Freescale and any of the named companies, it this because it did not happen or was tried and failed. Many interesting questions, I hope for a followup article as details become available.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
