As part of the settlement, the two said that MaxLinear has granted Silicon Labs a license to its patent portfolio, and that Silicon Labs had granted MaxLinear a license to its own set of patents. Financial details of the settlement were not disclosed. The two also agreed to enter into a three-year covenant not to sue each other again.
