SAN JOSE, Calif., March 24, 2010 – IDT® (Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: IDTI), a leading provider of essential mixed signal semiconductor solutions that enrich the digital media experience today announced a favorable ruling issued yesterday by the International Trade Commission (ITC) in a patent action brought by LSI Corporation against several semiconductor companies, including IDT. In the ruling, the full commission of the ITC found that the patent claims asserted by LSI were invalid and has subsequently terminated the investigation.
“We are pleased with the ITC ruling in this matter. IDT places a great amount of respect and emphasis on the intellectual property of not only our company, but our entire industry,” said Vince Tortolano, vice president and general counsel for IDT.
