During the year we enjoyed a broadening of our patent portfolio, while also seeing haptics achieve more widespread adoption in the mobile market. In addition to working to deliver compelling new solutions to customers, we are intently focused on monetizing and protecting our IP relative to the implementation of basic haptics within touchscreens and recently filed a complaint for patent infringement against Motorola Mobility with the ITC.”
