GE Lighting And AgiLight Resolve LED Patent Lawsuit

News

GE Lighting has announced the resolution of a patent infringement lawsuit filed in February 2012 against AgiLight, Inc.

The resolution terminates a pending action before the court regarding allegations of AgiLight's infringements of US Patents 7,160,140; 7,520,771; 7,633,055; and 7,832,896 that cover, among other things, LED modules for signage applications. The specific terms of the resolution will remain confidential, but the litigation has been resolved to the parties' mutual satisfaction.

"We are satisfied with this resolution, which demonstrates our continuing commitment to defending GE Lighting Solution's intellectual property," said Jerry Duffy, general manager of global product management for GE Lighting.

He added: "The '140, '771, '055, and '896 patents cover technology important to the long life and reliable operation of LED-based signage modules. GE Lighting is offering non-exclusive licenses under these patents to interested parties."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
