08:07 EDTNLSTUSPTO Examiner reconfirms patentability of Netlist's LRDIMM patent claims
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Examiner in the consolidated reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,619,912 issued an Answer maintaining the patentability of 92 claims related to LRDIMM. The reexaminations were brought in the United States Patent and Trademark Office by Google (GOOG), Inphi Corporation, and SMART Modular Technologies. The 92 patentable claims are generally directed to the fundamental concept of rank multiplication which is integral to the design of the LRDIMM. The Examiner issued the Answer on January 14, 2015, in response to voluminous appeal briefs filed by Google, Inphi, and SMART Modular. The Examiner considered arguments from all parties and ultimately maintained his conclusions as to the patentability of these claims, while maintaining the rejection of 11 other claims. The parties will now have the opportunity to file rebuttal briefs before the reexamination proceeds to the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for oral arguments, likely later this year or early next. The '912 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Google in the Northern District of California and Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California. Both sets of litigation have been stayed pending the outcome of this and other reexamination proceedings.
