Samsung files ITC complaint to block Nvidia chips from US – Bloomberg – Reuters


(Reuters) – South Korea’s Samsung Electronics Co Ltd (005930.KS) has filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission seeking to block computer-graphics chips made by Nvidia Corp (NVDA.O) from the U.S. market, Bloomberg reported.

Samsung had accused Nvidia of infringing several of its chip-related patents and for making false claims about its products, counter-suing after Nvidia filed a suit against the company in September.

The Korean company’s lawsuit came after Nvidia accused it and rival Qualcomm Inc (QCOM.O) of infringing patents on its graphics-processing unit (GPU). [ID:nL3N0R61S0]

Samsung, which had filed the lawsuit in a U.S. federal court on Nov. 4, is seeking damages for deliberate infringement of several technical patents, including a few that govern the way semiconductors buffer and use data.

The Bloomberg report said that the ITC complaint also named computer-parts manufacturers Biostar Microtech International Corp (2399.TW) and Elitegroup Computer Systems Co (2331.TW). (bloom.bg/1zKYwdE)
