SimpleTech files patent infringement lawsuit

SimpleTech announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Staktek Corporation, alleging that Staktek’s ‘Value Stack’ memory stack module infringes SimpleTech’s US Patent.

SimpleTech, Inc, a provider of Flash-based storage, announced today that it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Staktek Corporation in US District Court for the Central District of California.

The lawsuit alleges that Staktek’s recently introduced ‘Value Stack’ memory stack module infringes SimpleTech’s US Patent No. Re. 36,916, issued in October 2000. The asserted patent relates to SimpleTech’s IC Tower stacking product.

‘SimpleTech is committed to bringing innovative products to the market through its ongoing focus on research and development. SimpleTech is equally committed to protecting our intellectual property associated with those innovations,’ said Manouch Moshayedi, SimpleTech’s CEO.

SimpleTech’s IC Tower stacking technology is said to allow multiple memory and logic chips to be stacked together to provide increased memory and storage densities that provide enhanced capacity and functionality without increasing the size of the footprint of the memory modules.
