Intel will have to pay almost $1 billion for patent infringement, and we are talking about paying a patent troll.

Intel ordered to pay almost $1 billion to a patent troll for infringing a patent issued nearly 20 years ago

A Texas court ruled in favor of VLSI, a dormant company owned by private equity firm Fortress Investment Group. Intel was ordered to pay $949 million in fines for infringing a patent issued almost 20 years ago.

The patent in question was acquired by VLSI from NXP Semiconductors and, according to the plaintiff, causes “millions and millions of violations per second” in Intel processors.

US7247552B2 describes a method for troubleshooting defects caused by voltage applied to the pads. The patented technology improves the chip design by adding dummy metal lines to the interconnect layers to increase the density of the metal.

VLSI claims that Intel has been using the technology for many years up until the Cascade Lake generation in 2019. Intel says that it did not use this development at all, and the generations of Skylake and Cascade Lake CPUs mentioned in the lawsuit use Intel’s proprietary technology. Moreover, Intel claims that the technology from the patent will not work at all in modern CPUs.

It is worth noting that this is not the first and not the last trial between Intel and VLSI. Last March, VLSI won a nearly $2.2 billion case, but Intel has already filed an appeal. In April, VLSI lost another patent case against Intel. In addition, two more lawsuits are pending.
