In the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Wilmington, Del., Fairchild alleges that certain Power Integrations’ pulse-width modulation (PWM) integrated circuit products infringe one or more claims of three U.S. patents owned by Fairchild subsidiary System General Corporation.
The U.S. patents are No. 7,259,972, entitled “Primary-Side-Control Power Converter Having Switching Controller Using Frequency Hopping and Voltage And Current Control Loops;” No. 7,352,595, entitled “Primary-Side Controlled Switching Regulator;” and No. 7,061,780, entitled “Switching Control Circuit with Variable Switching Frequency for Primary-Side-Controlled Power Converters.”
Fairchild is seeking monetary damages and an injunction preventing the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale or importation of Power Integrations products found to infringe the asserted patents.
