Qualcomm, Broadcom Agree To Dismiss Claims On Four Patents
Wireless chip developer Qualcomm said it agreed to settle certain patent claims with rival Broadcom.
The settlement eliminates two of several jury trials scheduled for 2007 but other cases and trial dates are unaffected, the company said in a statement.
In a separate release, Qualcomm said a federal court on Feb. 16 had dismissed an antitrust complaint brought against it and some other mobile phone makers by Golden Bridge Technology.
The remaining claims between the parties are in federal courts in San Diego and Orange County, California.
