CARLSBAD, Calif. -- MaxLinear, Inc. (MXL), a leading provider of integrated radio-frequency (RF) and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for broadband communication applications, announced today that it has filed counterclaims against Silicon Laboratories Inc. (SLAB) in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of California, San Diego Division.

The patent counterclaims assert that a broad range of Silicon Laboratories’ products spanning TV tuners and receivers, satellite and FM and multiband receivers, and wireless MCUs infringe one or more of three MaxLinear patents: United States Patent Nos. 7,362,178; 8,198,940; and 7,778,613. The counterclaims seek damages and an injunction to stop the sale of the infringing Silicon Laboratories products.

“As a pioneer of broadband CMOS RF-Mixed Signal technology, MaxLinear is a strong believer in intellectual property,” said Dr. Kishore Seendripu, CEO of MaxLinear. “MaxLinear has invested millions of dollars in research and development to bring to market truly innovative and low-cost technologies to consumers.”
