Silicon Laboratories Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against MaxLinear

Silicon Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq: SLAB) today announced it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against MaxLinear in the Southern District of California, San Diego Division. This lawsuit continues patent litigation against MaxLinear that now involves 20 Silicon Laboratories patents related to RF and mixed-signal design. Silicon Labs intends to prove that MaxLinear’s portfolio of TV, set-top box, and cable tuners infringes on a number of Silicon Labs' key innovations developed and adopted by the market over the last decade. Silicon Labs has asked the court for an injunction stopping the sale of all infringing MaxLinear products.

Silicon Labs has a track record of innovation and commercial success derived from inventions covered by an extensive portfolio of 1,200 patented and patent-pending innovations. The company intends to defend vigorously against any infringement of its core intellectual property.
