Power Integrations Files Suit Against System General

Power Integrations Inc., supplier of integrated circuits used for power conversion, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against System General Corp., a Taiwanese company. The suit, filed recently in the U.S. Federal District Court, states that certain integrated circuits produced by System General infringe upon patents owned by Power Integrations. The company is seeking damages as well as an injunction against System General’s products.

“Power Integrations has a policy of respecting the legitimate intellectual property of others, and we expect others to honor our intellectual property as well,” said Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations. “We have successfully defended our intellectual property in the past,” added Balakrishnan, “and we believe that our patents will be upheld in this case.”

Power Integrations is represented in the lawsuit by the firm of Fish & Richardson P.C., whose team is led by Frank Scherkenbach and Howard Pollack.
