08:47 EDTNLSTNetlist prevails in patent reexamination appeal
Netlist announced that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a decision upholding the validity of all 60 claims in the reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,532,537 brought by Inphi Corporation. In its decision on January 16, the PTAB dismissed every single validity challenge raised by Inphi and affirmed the Examiner's decision to allow the claims. These claims are directed to fundamental concepts of load reduction and rank multiplication which are integral to the design of LRDIMMs. The '537 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California, which has been stayed pending the outcome of the reexamination. Netlist has steadily invested in and grown its IP portfolio, which now includes 41 issued patents and more than 29 U.S. and foreign pending patent applications in the areas of high performance memory and hybrid memory technologies.

09:24 EDTNLSTNetlist announces PTAB of USPTO denied Inphi request for rehearing
Netlist (NLST) announced that the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, or PTAB, of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or USPTO, issued a final decision in the reexamination of U.S. Pat. No. 7,532,537 denying Inphi Corporation's request for a rehearing. The '537 reexamination appeal in the USPTO is now closed. With this action, the PTAB reaffirmed its earlier decision upholding the validity of all 60 claims in the '537 patent reexamination, dismissing every single validity challenge raised by Inphi. These claims are directed to fundamental concepts of load reduction and rank multiplication which are integral to the design of LRDIMMs at DDR3 and DDR4. Inphi's only opportunity to challenge the PTAB's final decision is an appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which it must file by mid-October. The '537 Patent is also the subject of litigation between Netlist and Inphi in the Central District of California, which has been stayed pending the outcome of the reexamination, including any subsequent appeals.
