07:09 EDTCSCO, FBFacebook introduces Wedge, FBOSS
Facebook posted on its engineering blog that "Over the last three years, we’ve been working within the Open Compute Project to apply this principle to open designs for racks, servers, storage boxes, and motherboards. And last year, we kicked off a new networking project within OCP, with a goal of developing designs for OS-agnostic top-of-rack switches. This was the first step toward disaggregating the network – separating hardware from software, so we can spur the development of more choices for each – and our progress so far has exceeded our expectations... Today we’re pleased to unveil the next step: a new top-of-rack network switch, code-named 'Wedge,' and a new Linux-based operating system for that switch, code-named 'FBOSS.' These projects break down the hardware and software components of the network stack even further, to provide a new level of visibility, automation, and control in the operation of the network. By combining the hardware and software modules together in new ways, 'Wedge' and 'FBOSS' depart from current networking design paradigms to leverage our experience in operating hundreds of thousands of servers in our data centers. In other words, our goal with these projects was to make our network look, feel, and operate more like the OCP servers we've already deployed, both in terms of hardware and software." Reference Link

10:21 EDTCSCOVicor says SynQor power converter claims held to be invalid
In a unanimous decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., on March 13 issued a ruling invalidating key claims of a power converter patent asserted by SynQor Inc. against Vicor Corporation (VICR) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) in litigation currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Reversing a decision of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, the Federal Circuit agreed with Vicor that prior art anticipated certain claims of SynQor's 7,072,190 patent and ordered the USPTO to reconsider the obviousness of the remaining claims. Commenting on the decision, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Vicor's CEO, stated, "The Federal Circuit decision turns the tables on SynQor, which resorted to attacking competitors and customers with bogus intellectual property after failing in the marketplace with its inferior bus converters. As a company founded on innovation, Vicor respects legitimate IP interests of others. However, Vicor will confront abusive IP litigation where, as here, illegitimate claims are asserted to suppress competition from superior products known not to infringe." Vicor has asserted counterclaims against SynQor. In its counterclaims, Vicor seeks damages for unfair and deceptive trade practices and tortious interference engaged in by SynQor as part of its campaign to discourage customers from using Vicor's superior products so as to monopolize the bus converter market. Vicor will hold SynQor, and its principals, accountable for damages they have intentionally caused.
