SAN JOSE, Calif., July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) (Nasdaq: MPWR), a leading fabless manufacturer of high-performance analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced that on June 14, 2012, the Intellectual Property Court (IP Court) in Taiwan issued a judgment finding Fitipower Integrated Technology (Fitipower) infringes MPS Patent No. I299935.  The IP Court also granted an injunctive relief ordering Fitipower to destroy and to stop making, selling, importing, use and offer to sell infringing products and datasheets including TA2154, FR9758, FR9706 and FP6340.  In the ruling, the IP Court awarded MPS monetary damages in the amount of $1.8 million New Taiwan Dollars against Fitipower. MPS Patent No. I299935 enables efficient low-voltage, low-current power conversion such as DC-DC step-down converter applications.  In 2010, MPS filed two patent infringement lawsuits against Fitipower with the IP Court in Taiwan.
