Nvidia And Samsung End IP Litigation
Nvidia and Samsung have come to an agreement to settle all pending intellectual property litigation between the two companies, Nvidia has advised.
Nvidia had filed patent infringement complaints against Samsung in 2014, alleging infringements with regard to GPU technology patents, with Samsung subsequently countersuing two months later.
With agreement having being reached, this will see the immediate dismissal of all pending IP litigation in US district courts, the US International Trade Commission and the US Patent Office between the companies, Nvidia advised.
The settlement includes the licensing of a small number of patents by each company to the other, Nvidia stated, however does not include broad cross-licensing of patents or other compensation, with further details of the agreement not being disclosed.
Samsung stated that it is “happy to resolve this dispute through a fair settlement”.
