    It is interesting how different POWI has trended up since it's quarterly report yesterday with a miss but better guidance. When compared to what I imagined as a beat by VICR and not such good near term guidance. There is some perceived risk in the continued lawsuit and execution for VICR but I hope all will work out well...

    I don't think they like what they heard judging by the stock price reaction?

    ...the '190 patent were anticipated by prior art belies SynQor's claim to have invented IBA and validates Vicor's determination to confront SynQor's abuse of the patent system and of patent litigation to suppress competition from superior products known not to infringe. We look forward to future rulings rejecting the validity of the remaining claims in SynQor's family of bogus patents, and its groundless patent infringement claims against Vicor."

    I'm sure we'll hear more tomorrow...

    And the beat goes on ...

    ANDOVER, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2015) - On April 24, 2015, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., issued an order denying SynQor's petition for panel rehearing of the Court's March 13, 2015, decision invalidating certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 7,072,190, which SynQor, Inc. has asserted against Vicor Corporation (NASDAQ: VICR) and Cisco Systems, Inc. in litigation currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The Federal Circuit's March 13th decision reversed a prior decision of the United States Patent and Trademark Office's Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) that had found the same claims patentable in an inter partes reexamination proceeding initiated by Vicor. The Federal Circuit's April 24th order confirms its earlier ruling that prior art anticipated key claims of the '190 patent and may render the remaining claims invalid as obvious.
    On April 20, 2015, the PTAB issued a decision in the inter partes reexamination of SynQor's U.S. Patent No. 7,564,702 that reversed the patent examiners' prior rejection of all claims in that patent. Vicor believes this decision, like the PTAB's prior decision concerning the '190 patent, misapprehends relevant prior art because of misrepresentations by SynQor. Vicor intends to vigorously contest this ruling, through a motion for reconsideration and/or an appeal to the Federal Circuit.
    Commenting on the Federal Circuit's denial of SynQor's petition, Dr. Patrizio Vinciarelli, Vicor's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "For years SynQor has sought to prevent competition in the market for Intermediate Bus Architecture (IBA) components, by patenting concepts that were already well known in the field of power electronics, and by asserting its patents against Vicor's fundamentally different and technically superior bus converter products. The Federal Circuit's affirmation that key claims of the '190 patent were anticipat

    The market sure didn't like it today. I'm guessing it's not so good for Vicor in the short term and counters a lot of what PV has been saying on the case. Unfortunately we'll probably see more legal fees, distractions, etc. on older technology.

    Long term, I'm hoping that Vicor's new products and new business will speak for itself and produce significant new profits...

    Looking forward to the Q1 conference call update.

  • SynQor Announces Reversal by Patent Trial and Appeal Board

    Boxborough, MA – SynQor announced today that the United States Patent Trial and Appeal Board ("PTAB") issued its Decision on Appeal in the inter partes reexamination of U.S. Patent No. 7,564,702 ("'702 Patent"). The '702 Patent is one in a family of patents relating to Intermediate Bus Architecture (“SynQor IBA Patents”) that SynQor is currently asserting against Cisco Systems and Vicor Corporation in the Eastern District of Texas. SynQor, Inc. v. Cisco Systems, Inc. Civil Action No. 2:14-CV-286 E.D. Texas and SynQor, Inc. v. Vicor Corporation Civil Action No. 2:14-CV-287 E.D. Texas.

    In its decision, the PTAB rejected Vicor’s challenge to the validity of the '702 Patent and reversed all of the Examiner's claim rejections, including the four claims of the '702 Patent asserted against Cisco Systems and Vicor in the above cases. To read the Decision on Appeal click here.

    The Decision on Appeal is the first time the PTAB has considered a reexamination of any of the SynQor IBA Patents since the Federal Circuit's March 13 decision in Vicor Corporation v. SynQor, Inc.

    The PTAB commented: "The weight of the objective evidence, combined with the technical difficulties in implementing the proposed combinations of references adopted from the Request by the Examiner, lead us to the conclusion that the claims at issue would not have been obvious to one of only ordinary skill in the art at the time the invention was made."
