Viavi settles optical patent complaints with LG Innotek, Optrontec complaints remains active
Viavi Solutions and LG Innotek have settled over patent infringement accusations and Viavi will no longer be suing LG Electronics over illegal use of its optical filter patents, the company announced.
Other terms and conditions are confidential and not for public release.
The complaints were registered with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and with the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Viavi says that the ITC and California complaints remain active and will proceed forward with regard to Optrontec.
The complaints allege Optrontec incorporated Viavi’s patented optical filter design into its optical filters for use in mobile phones and tablets with facial and gesture recognition technology. Viavi has filed for an exclusion order with the two institutions to block Optrontec from importing the alleged patent-infringing optical filters into the U.S.
Viavi develops optical filters and three-dimensional (3D) motion sensing technology. The company claims its optical filter deliver great performance, a desired reduction in filter thickness and a reduced center wavelength shift with a change in incidence angle of the reflected light.
