Cree Files Lawsuits to Protect LED intellectual property


LED company Cree has filed patent infringement lawsuits in the United States District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin to prevent Harvatek and Kingbright from infringing its patented intellectual property. 

These patents, among other things, protect Cree's LED component portfolio, including Cree's white light LEDs.

"Cree continues to invest significant resources in developing industry-leading technologies, and it's paramount that we protect the investment of our current licensees, shareholders and customers," said Brad Kohn, Cree general counsel.

 "These cases demonstrate that Cree will continue to take the necessary measures worldwide to protect our patents and other intellectual property rights against any company that infringes our patents."

The US Patents included in these cases are:

6,600,175 - Solid state white light emitter and display using same

7,943,945 - Solid state white light emitter and display using same

8,659,034 - Solid state white light emitter and display using same

7,910,938 - Encapsulant profile for light emitting diodes

8,766,298 - Encapsulant profile for light emitting diodes

8,362,605 - Apparatus and method for use in mounting electronic elements

Cree's product families include LED fixtures and bulbs, blue and green LED chips, high-brightness LEDs, lighting-class power LEDs, power-switching devices and RF devices. Cree products are used in applications such as general illumination, electronic signs and signals, power supplies and solar inverters. 


Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
