Agreement with Nokia, Micron

OTTAWA – MOSAID Technologies Inc. signs a worldwide wireless patent licence agreement with Finland’s Nokia Corporation and, in unrelated news, ends its litigation with Micron Technologies Inc.

MOSAID also recently settled a patent dispute with Boise, Idaho-based DRAM heavyweight Micron Technologies Inc. The litigation was settled after Micron signed a 10-year licencing deal for an unspecified number of MOSAID patents, and the Ottawa company in turn acquired 400 Micron-held patents related to DRAM, Flash memory, and semiconductor process technology. “By settling the litigation and signing a patent license agreement with Micron, one of the world’s largest DRAM producers, we have achieved our goal of licensing virtually 100% of the global commodity DRAM market to our patents,” says John Lindgren, president and chief executive of MOSAID.
