Inphi Countersues Netlist

Westlake Village-based Inphi Corporation, a developer of high speed analog semiconductors, has counter-sued competitor Netlist, the firm announced Monday afternoon. According to Inphi, its lawsuit--filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California--alleges that Netlist's DDR3 Registered memory modules infringe on two of the firm's U.S. Patents. Inphi was sued in September by Netlist over Netlist's own, memory semiconductor patents. Inphi said the patents covered in the lawsuit are 7,307,863 and 7,479,799, and related to memory interface technologies used in enterprise server and storage applications.
