Qualcomm and QTI infringe the following patents related to power efficiency owned by Apple (collectively, the “Apple Patents-in-Suit”):

U.S. Patent No. 7,355,905 (“the ’905 patent”); “Integrated Circuit with Separate Supply Voltage for Memory that Is Different from Logic Circuit Supply Voltage,”
U.S. Patent No. 7,760,559 (“the ’559 patent”); “Integrated Circuit with Separate Supply Voltage for Memory that Is Different from Logic Circuit Supply Voltage,”
U.S. Patent No. 8,098,534 (“the ’534 patent”); “Integrated Circuit with Separate Supply Voltage for Memory that Is Different from Logic Circuit Supply Voltage,”
U.S. Patent No. 7,383,453 (“the ’453 patent”); “Conserving Power by Reducing Voltage Supplied to an Instruction-Processing Portion of a Processor,”
U.S. Patent No. 8,433,940 (“the ’940 patent”); “Conserving Power by Reducing Voltage Supplied to an Instruction-Processing Portion of a Processor,”
U.S. Patent No. 8,443,216 (“the ’216 patent”); “Hardware Automatic Performance State Transitions in System on Processor Sleep and Wake Events,”
U.S. Patent No. 8,271,812 (“the ’812 patent”); “Hardware Automatic Performance State Transitions in System on Processor Sleep and Wake Events,” and
U.S. Patent No. 8,656,196 (“the ’196 patent”); “Hardware Automatic Performance State Transitions in System on Processor Sleep and Wake Events,” .

The Apple Patents-in-Suit enable extended battery life by (1) supplying power only where it is needed; (2) supplying power only at the level needed; and (3) enabling quick powering up and down. It's peculiar to see many of the above patents have the same title.

The ’905, ’559, and ’534 patents generally relate to supplying each area of the processor with only the minimum voltage needed by that area while still allowing the different areas to communicate with each other, resulting in decreased power consumption while providing reliable memory.

The ’453 and ’940 patents generally relate to providing power saving modes where portions of the processor can be turned off when not needed, using power only when it is needed and thereby causing batteries to last longer.

The ’216, ’812, and ’196 patents generally relate to making moving into and out of power saving modes quicker, and with minimal processing delay. To conserve power, processors can go into an idle state. Entering and exiting that state requires time and can create delay. That delay can discourage entry into an idle state.
