Inphi will vigorously defend itself in recent nuisance lawsuit

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., September 28, 2009 – Inphi Corporation, a high-speed analog semiconductor company, announced today that it will vigorously defend itself in response to a nuisance lawsuit announced by Netlist, Inc. on September 23, 2009. The Netlist press release claims that Inphi’s newly developed iMB ™ technology infringes on Netlist’s U.S. Patent No. 7,532,537. While Inphi has not received any communication from Netlist on this matter, nor been served with a complaint, Inphi has examined the patent in question and believes there is no infringement.

“Inphi’s iMB technology has been widely praised in the marketplace and is now gaining significant traction. Inphi intends to continue to develop innovative technologies in earnest and will respond accordingly to contrived efforts to obstruct our progress,” said Young Sohn, president and CEO of Inphi.
