JACKSONVILLE, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 19, 2021 / ParkerVision, Inc. (OTCQB:PRKR), a leading developer of radio frequency technologies used in advanced wireless solutions, announced today that it has successfully resolved its patent infringement litigation against Buffalo, Inc. on mutually-agreeable and confidential terms including a patent license. Buffalo, Inc., of Nagoya, Japan ("Buffalo") manufactures and sells computer related products.
In conjunction with this agreement, ParkerVision will file a motion to terminate its patent infringement proceedings against Buffalo in the Western District of Texas. Proceeds received will be used for ParkerVision legal expenses.
ParkerVision's patent infringement action against Buffalo was initiated in the Western District of Texas in October 2020 and related to Buffalo's use of WiFi chips in its products. ParkerVision has additional patent infringement actions currently ongoing in the Western District of Texas including cases against Intel, Hisense, TCL and ZyXel.
"We are satisfied with the resolution of all outstanding litigation with Buffalo and with the commercial terms of the agreement," said Jeffrey Parker, ParkerVision's Chairman and CEO.
Mr. Parker further emphasized, "We believe that ParkerVision's wireless innovations, resulting from R&D investments of well over $100 million, are now at the heart of billions of popular wireless chips in a wide range of applications from cellular Smartphone 3G/4G/5G transceivers, to the latest WiFi and IoT devices. While ParkerVision has had to bring litigations to enforce its patent rights, we would prefer to continue to focus on the business of innovation and helping grow the US economy through technology and product development."
