More in the Magma Synopsys patent dispute

Further to earlier posts on IPBiz, there are further developments in the Magma Synopsys dispute.

EETimes reports: Magma Design Automation Inc. has dropped assertions of infringement against Synopsys Inc. relating to one of the patents involved in the companies' Delaware patent litigation.

Synopsys (of Mountain View, Calif.) and Magma (of Santa Clara, Calif.) are also involved in a separate patent litigation dispute in California. The two cases involve different patents. The development of Sept. 15 has no impact on the California case.

Synopsys said it is also is dedicating certain of its inventions pertaining to scan chain partitioning to the public domain. By doing so, Synopsys said it is focusing its claims against Magma in the Delaware intellectual property litigation.
