SynQor, Inc. v. Artesyn Technologies, Inc. et al Civil Action No. 2:07-CV-497 E.D. Texas.  "The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and now the Supreme Court of the United States have sustained the process followed by the trial court in Texas upholding the validity of our IBA patents, the infringement by the defendants and the damages awarded by the jury.  We are delighted to be at the end of this case," commented Dr. Martin F. Schlecht, Chief Executive Officer of SynQor.

In the original case, 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.  SynQor's patents at issue in the lawsuit were U.S. Patent Nos. 7,072,190, 7,272,021, 7,558,083, 7,564,702 and 7,269,034.
