Power Integrations (Nasdaq: POWI) today announced a verdict reached in the company’s 2008 patent-infringement lawsuit against Fairchild Semiconductor. After a three-week trial in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, a jury found that Fairchild infringes two Power Integrations patents. The infringement findings cover approximately 75 Fairchild products, including the following products and those with substantially identical infringing circuitry:

AS1000     FAN6754     FSEZ1217     PO268MY     SG6846
AS1003     FAN6791     FSEZ1307     PO368MY     SG6846A

DAP024     FAN6861     FSEZ2007     SG5842J     SG6846C
FAN100     FAN6862     FSEZ2016     SG5842JA     SG6846G
FAN102     FAN6862L     FSEZ2037     SG5851     SG68502

FAN400C     FSBH0F70     LTA705S     SG6742HL     SG6860
FAN6747     FSEZ1016A     LTA809FA     SG6742HR     SGP100
FAN6751     FSEZ1116     LTA810FA     SG6742ML     SGP101
FAN6752     FSEZ1216     LTA811FA     SG6742MR     SGP400
FAN6753     FSEZ1216B     PO168MY     SG6842J      
               

The jury also upheld the validity of the infringed patents, and further found that Fairchild has induced others to infringe Power Integrations’ patents. Power Integrations will seek an injunction preventing further infringement and is seeking financial damages, as well as enhanced damages for willful infringement, issues that are to be decided in a separate trial to be held at a later date.
