Permanent Injunction Issued by Federal District Court
Boxborough, MA - February 1, 2011 - In December 2010, SynQor, Inc. announced
that it had prevailed in its patent litigation suit against industry suppliers
of unregulated and semi-regulated bus converters used in Intermediate Bus
Architecture applications (SynQor, Inc. v. Artesyn Technologies, Inc. et al).
SynQor asserted 5 patents against 11 of the largest
industry suppliers of unregulated and semi-regulated bus converters in the US
District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. In a unanimous verdict, the
jury found that each of the 11 defendants infringed one or more of SynQor's
patents and upheld the validity of all such patents.
On January 24, 2011, the US District Court for the Eastern District of Texas
issued a permanent injunction against each of the defendants in the suit and
those who are in active concert with the defendants, enjoining them from
manufacturing and selling the products from the product families listed in the
Order and any products that are not colorably different. A copy of the Order is

On and after January 31, the defendants were issued
Temporary Stays with respect to the Order by the U.S. Court of Appeals. These
Temporary Stays apply only to sales by the defendant suppliers to specific
customers (Cisco Systems, Fujitsu Ltd., Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.,
Juniper Networks, Cray, Inc., Enterasys Networks and Radisys Corporation), and
remain in place only until the Emergency Motions for Stay pending Appeal are
decided by the U.S. Court of Appeals.
Sales of enjoined products to other customers not
listed in the Temporary Stays remain enjoined under the January 24 Order.
Copies of the Stays are attached. [Temporary
Stay Orders of Court of Appeals.pdf]
The January 24 Order provides that SynQor may authorize
specific sales by the defendants, and if it does so, the Order will not apply
to those sales.
Inquiries concerning the foregoing should be directed
to Arthur R. Hofmann, Jr., SynQor's Executive Vice President and General
