SAN DIEGO -- Under the Consent Judgment on file with the United States District Court, Southern District of California, Pulse~LINK patents 6,895,034 and 7,099,368 have been stipulated as valid and enforceable in the UWB-Over-Coax patent infringement case filed against Tzero Technologies. The judgment was announced today as part of a settlement agreement between Ultra Wideband (UWB) semiconductor company, Pulse~LINK, Inc., and Tzero Technologies.

Federal litigation against Tzero alleged that, by making, using and selling UWB-Over-Coax solutions, Tzero was violating Pulse~LINK patents which are fundamental to UWB communications over wired media such as coaxial cable, power line and phone wires. In the settlement, Tzero affirmed it has suspended development of products that were the subject of the legal action, and agreed that before re-introducing any such product it shall first obtain a license from Pulse~LINK. Pulse~LINK, in turn, has agreed to grant Tzero a fair and commercially reasonable license in the event Tzero requests such a license in the future.

Pulse~LINK has a long history of willingness to license CWaveÒ UWB technology and its associated Intellectual Property, and has made RAND licensing assurances stipulating so within several industry organizations. “We welcome a multi-supplier silicon ecosystem for UWB-Over-Coax, provided solutions are properly designed for both wired and wireless environments and deliver the quality and performance of CWave,” states Bruce Watkins, co-founder and President/COO for Pulse~LINK. “We remain committed to contributing our considerable body of Intellectual Property within industry groups willing to collaborate so that best-in-class performance, interoperability and peaceful signal-coexistence are assured for the consumer.”
