I'm puzzled by the Toshiba / SanDisk lawsuit against Hynix. Both the EETimes (USA) and the EETimes (Europe) articles indicate that Hynix settled such a case with Toshina in 2004 with a cross-licensing agreement. If the technology was invented in 1987 (and therefore presumably has lost patent protection), why is a new lawsuit being filed now when a cross-licensing agreement is in place?

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.
