Litigation is dismissed with prejudice with no funds changing hands

CAMPBELL, Calif. — March 21, 2019 Arteris IP, the world’s leading supplier of innovative, silicon-proven network-on-chip (NoC) interconnect intellectual property, today announced that Case # 11-cv-5311-SBA was dismissed with prejudice by the Northern District of California Court with support of all parties involved. This litigation was launched by Sonics Inc. in November of 2011 alleging infringement of seven Sonics patents by Arteris, Inc. Arteris vigorously denied any infringement while challenging the validity of Sonics’ patents. The case was stayed for patent re-examination by the US Patent and Trademark Office in June of 2014 and was dismissed in March of 2019. The stipulated dismissal with prejudice is now part of the public record.

Arteris IP will, as always, continue to compete strongly in the interconnect IP market for the benefit of the entire semiconductor industry and our nearly 120 customers.”
