I no longer follow individual stocks. I did real quickly eyeball the price and volume history as well as the company's numbers, and I'd agree with your implied assessment of the stock appearing to have a favorable long term outlook. However, the stock has moved from 17+ to 27+ in less than a year, so any enthusiasm generated by the quarterly report should be tempered by the belief that the good news is already priced into the stock, and any short term hoped for gains would require continued good news. If I were looking to invest in TSRA, I'd likely wait for some correction maybe to the 23/24 range and then cautiously buy long. I'm not as afraid of this stock's performance as I am afraid of a general market decline for the near term future, with domestic stocks/markets taking off again after that. As we all know, but few admit, no matter how bad things look for domestic stock markets, they are far safer than foreign markets right now. So foreign investors will continue to invest the bulk of their cash in the USA as opposed to risking it elsewhere at possible lower rates of return.

EK!!!

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Tessera Technologies, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, “Tessera”), announced today that Administrative Law Judge Sandra Dee Lord of the U.S. International Trade Commission ("ITC"), issued a Notice of Initial Determination (“ID”) in Certain Semiconductor Devices, Semiconductor Device Packages, And Products Containing Same, Investigation No. 337-TA-1010. Tessera is a subsidiary of Xperi Corporation ( XPER) (the “Company”).

The notice includes only a brief summary of the ID’s conclusions. According to the notice, ALJ Lord found a violation of Section 337 of the Tariff Act due to infringement of U.S. Patent No. 6,849,946 by Broadcom and its named customers. She found that U.S. Patent No. 6,133,136 was infringed and valid, but found no violation due to lack of domestic industry. She found no violation with respect to U.S. Patent No. 6,856,007.

The parties and their counsel have not yet received the full ID, which is subject to confidentiality restrictions. Thus, no further details on the substance of the decision, including details about the scope of the ALJ’s infringement finding, are available at this time. After the Company’s counsel receives the full ID, which it anticipates to be within the next few days, the Company will determine whether further comment on the decision is appropriate.

The ID is now subject to review by the Commissioners at the ITC. Any remedies would not issue until the completion of the investigation, which at this time is scheduled for October 30, 2017.

Key Tessera Patent Infringed across Broadcom Product Lines Business WireJuly 5, 2017
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Tessera Technologies, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries (collectively, “Tessera,” a subsidiary of Xperi Corporation ( XPER) (the “Company”)), confirmed more details today on its significant win against Broadcom Corporation (“Broadcom”) and certain of its customers in the U.S. International Trade Commission (“ITC”). Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) Sandra Dee Lord issued a notice of initial determination (“ID”) on June 30, 2017, and the Company’s counsel has now received the full ID and confirmed the broad scope of Tessera’s victory.

“We are very pleased with this result, which our counsel has confirmed is a complete victory on the ‘946 Patent,” said Jon Kirchner, the Company’s CEO, referring to U.S. Patent No. 6,849,946 (the “‘946 Patent”). “The ALJ found that the ‘946 Patent is infringed, valid, and has a domestic industry in the United States. This is a key patent on a fundamental manufacturing process technology that is not only very broadly infringed across all of Broadcom’s significant product lines, but, we believe, is used by many others in the semiconductor industry.”

The infringing Broadcom products are semiconductor chips that fall into one of seven technology nodes: 16nm, 20nm, 28nm, 45/40nm, 65/60/55nm, 90nm, and 130nm. The ‘946 Patent covers the largest number of Broadcom products of all three patents at issue in the ITC investigation.

This is the second time that the ‘946 Patent’s validity has been confirmed in the past four months – first by the Patent Trial and Appeals Board when it denied Broadcom’s petition for Inter Partes Review (“IPR”) in March, and now by the ITC. This patent is also at issue in the Company’s parallel lawsuits against Broadcom and Avago in Delaware federal district court, where the Company is seeking damages.

The ALJ also recommended that the ITC issue its standard remedies that would bar Broadcom and its customers Arista Networks, ARRIS/Pace, ASUSTeK/ASUS, Comcast Cable, HTC, NETGEAR, and Technicolor from importing, selling, and engaging in a variety of related domestic activity in connection with infringing imported products. The infringing products include a very wide array of Broadcom chips and the products that incorporate them, such as set-top boxes, routers, modems, gateways, cell phones and other mobile devices, as well as Ethernet switches and other chips designed for data centers, enterprises, and cloud computing servers. The case is now subject to review by the ITC Commissioners.

“We are also pleased by the ALJ’s ruling that the ‘136 Patent is infringed and valid,” Kirchner added, referring to U.S. Patent No. 6,133,136 (the “‘136 Patent”). “This is the second time this patented technology has been found to be infringed by Broadcom – first by a court in Germany and now by the ITC. And now the validity of the patent has also been confirmed. Although the ALJ found that the ‘136 lacked a domestic industry, that is a special requirement unique to the ITC that does not apply in federal district court or in Europe, where the Company has parallel cases against Broadcom.”

“Broadcom has now been found to infringe multiple patents in multiple jurisdictions – two of our U.S. patents and one of our E.U. patents. The ITC decision is our third major favorable decision against Broadcom in the past four months, along with the German infringement ruling and the IPR decision on the ‘946 Patent. We remain interested in negotiating a fair and reasonable license with Broadcom, but absent a satisfactory resolution, we will continue to defend our IP rights and enforce these decisions to the fullest extent of the law,” Kirchner concluded.

Broadcom Infringed Tessera Semiconductor IP: ITC JudgeBy Nicole Narea


Law360, New York (July 5, 2017, 3:41 PM EDT) -- A U.S. International Trade Commission administrative law judge on Wednesday found that a wide range of Broadcom Corp. products imported to the U.S. infringe a Tessera Technologies Inc. semiconductor patent, recommending standard remedies preventing the company from continuing to do so, a representative for Tessera said in a statement.

On Friday, Administrative Law Judge Dee Lord issued her notice of initial determination — a brief summary of her full decision — ruling that Broadcom violated Section 337 of the Tariff Act prohibiting unfair competition involving imports and the importation of infringing goods with respect to U.S. Patent Number 6,849,946 claiming a semiconductor layout configuration. She also found that Broadcom had not committed a violation of Tessera’s intellectual property rights with respect to another semiconductor patent because Tessera failed to prove that it had established a domestic industry around that patent and that a number of claims of a third related patent were invalid.

The full initial determination, made available to counsel on Wednesday, is subject to confidentiality restrictions, but Tessera’s CEO John Kirchner confirmed the scope of the company’s win in a statement.

"We are very pleased with this result, which our counsel has confirmed is a complete victory on the ‘946 patent," Kirchner said on Wednesday. "The ALJ found that the ‘946 patent is infringed, valid and has a domestic industry in the United States. This is a key patent on a fundamental manufacturing process technology that is not only very broadly infringed across all of Broadcom's significant product lines, but, we believe, is used by many others in the semiconductor industry."

Tessera, which licenses its technologies to several hundred companies, including Intel Corp. and Micron Technology Inc., filed its initial complaint in May 2016, alleging that Broadcom had unlawfully imported and sold semiconductor products infringing three Tessera patents: U.S. Patent Numbers 6,856,007; 6,849,946; and 6,133,136.

According to court filings, the ’007 patent covers a compact and economical semiconductor chip assembly that includes a packaged semiconductor chip, a chip carrier with a metallic thermal conductor and a circuit panel with a thermal conductor mounting. The ’946 patent claims a semiconductor layout configuration and method that results in a more efficient planarization process for a semiconductor chip. And the ’136 patent describes a structure for metal interconnects used in semiconductor packaging.

Tessera called Broadcom's alleged unauthorized use of those patented technologies as "widespread and pervasive" across all of its product lines, according to the complaint.

"Broadcom has failed to engage in meaningful licensing talks with Tessera despite Tessera's earnest and repeated efforts to pursue a business relationship over the past several years," the complaint states.

Tessera requested a permanent limited exclusion order to prevent Broadcom's infringing products from entering the U.S., as well as a permanent cease-and-desist order prohibiting Broadcom from marketing or selling the accused products.

Additionally, it asked the commission to impose a bond during a presidential review period to impede Broadcom in continuing to harm its business. ITC orders go into effect after a period of 60 days, unless rejected by the ITC president for policy reasons.

The ITC announced its intention to investigate Tessera’s complaint in June 2016 in a statement, recognizing that infringement could span Broadcom’s semiconductor technologies, mobile devices, set-top boxes, gateways, modems, routers, Ethernet switches, network routing equipment, infrastructure equipment for telecommunications and cable, networking and cloud systems.

The ALJ on Friday found that Broadcom had infringed the ’946 patent, but not the ’136 patent, for which Tessera failed to demonstrate a domestic industry, or the ’007 patent, several claims of which were found to be invalid. She additionally recommended what Tessera described as “standard remedies” that would bar Broadcom and its customers from importing, selling and engaging in a variety of related domestic activity in connection with infringing imported products.

Michael C. Spillner, in-house counsel for Tessera, said in a statement on Monday that the notice of the ALJ’s initial determination was one of several recent legal victories against Broadcom.

He said that Tessera had successfully defended the same patent that Broadcom was found on Friday to infringe in an inter partes review challenge at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board in March. And he also cited a German court that ruled earlier this year to impose an injunction barring Broadcom from shipping products into Germany that infringed a different Tessera semiconductor patent.

“We remain interested in negotiating a fair and reasonable license with Broadcom, but absent a satisfactory resolution, we will continue to defend our IP rights and enforce these decisions to the fullest extent of the law," Kirchner said on Wednesday.

The ALJ's initial determination will be subject to review by the commission and remedies will not go into effect until the completion of the investigation, which is currently slated for Oct. 30, 2017, a representative for Covington & Burling LLP, the firm representing Tessera, said in a statement on Monday.

Counsel for Broadcom did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.

Broadcom is represented by David E. Sipiora of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP.

Tessera is represented by Sturgis M. Sobin of Covington & Burling LLP.

The case is In the Matter of Certain Semiconductor Devices, Semiconductor Device Packages and Products Containing Same, investigation number 337-TA-1010 before the U.S. International Trade Commission.

Samsung Accused Of Infringing Tessera Chip Patents At ITC
Share us on: By Nicole Narea

Law360, New York (October 3, 2017, 8:39 PM EDT) -- The U.S. International Trade Commission announced Tuesday that Tessera Advanced Technologies Inc. requested an investigation of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.'s alleged infringement of two semiconductor patents, as well as the exclusion of infringing products and a prohibition on related commercial activity.

Bringing claims Thursday under the Tariff Act, Tessera, a subsidiary of tech giant Xperi Corp., asked the ITC to exclude infringing wafer-level packaged semiconductor devices and products containing them, such as the power management IC chips used in Samsung's flagship Galaxy and Note smartphones, as well as issue cease-and-desist orders barring commercial activity linked to those infringing products.

The commission consequently invited members of the public to file comments on the proceedings, in particular as they related to the public interest, products that could replace the infringing products if excluded and whether competitors had the ability to meet the volume of demand for such products.

"[Tessera] believe[s] that these exemplary Samsung products are representative of many other Samsung products imported, sold for importation, and/or sold in the United States after importation by Samsung that feature the same or substantially similar infringing functionality as the exemplary accused products," the complaint states.

The patents relate to semiconductor wafer-level packaging, or WLP, which is the process of packaging semiconductor chips before a wafer is divided into separate chips, reducing the package size. WLP will "enable the next generation of semiconductor devices" and "driv[e] the modern computing, telecommunications and information revolution," according to the complaint.

The patents specifically cover "improvement in chip reliability" by way of WLP, Tessera said.

Tessera named Samsung's phones in its Thursday complaint, but acknowledged that other cellular phones, tablets, notebooks and cameras might be found to infringe the patents during the discovery phase of the investigation. Tessera alleged that Samsung knew of its patents since at least May 2016, when Tessera presented its WLP technology to Samsung and explained how the company was infringing them.

"By continuing its actions, Samsung has had the specific intent to induct, or was willfully blind of inducing infringement of the patent," the complaint states.

Tessera claimed that it had established a domestic industry around the patents as evidenced by its hefty investment in dedicated manufacturing equipment, personnel, research, development, application engineering and licensing. Its licensee Micron Technology Inc. invested $1.62 billion in research and development in 2016, in part dedicated to the technology covered by the patents, Tessera alleged.

In May 2016, Tessera also accused Broadcom Corp. of infringing one of the patents at issue in Delaware federal court, prompting Broadcom to ask the Patent Trial and Appeals Board for inter partes review of the patent. Tessera further accused Samsung of infringing both patents in New Jersey federal court at the same time that it filed its ITC complaint.

Tessera additionally prevailed in defending a different semiconductor patent at the ITC against Broadcom when an administrative law judge found in July that a wide range of Broadcom products imported to the U.S. infringed, recommending standard remedies preventing the company from continuing to do so.

The patents in the investigation are U.S. Patent Numbers 6,954,001 and 6,784,557.

Counsel for Tessera and a representative for Samsung did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.

Tessera is represented by Matthew Moore, Maximilian Grant, Bert Reiser, Charles Sanders and Michael David of Latham & Watkins LLP.

Counsel information for Samsung was not available Tuesday.

The case is In the Matter of Certain Wafer-Level Packaging Semiconductor Devices and Products Containing the Same (Including Cellular Phones, Tablets, Laptops and Notebooks) and Components Thereof, case number 337-3262, in the U.S. International Trade Commission.
