VIA Sues Apple for Patent Infringement

jcombel (1557059) writes "The patent wars raged on today with chipmaker VIA Technologies filing suit against Apple for infringing on its patents with its iDevices.

VIA Technologies Inc., a Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer, filed suit on Wednesday with the U.S. District Court in Wilmington, Del. VIA’s complaint has to do with three U.S. patents allegedly infringed upon by Apple’s microprocessors, which include the in-house designed A4 and A5 that power the iPhone 4, iPod touch and iPad.

That seems to cast a fairly wide net, but since the core tech behind products made by VIA and Apple are based on completely different architecture, it could be that its issues are mainly to do with the modifications Apple has made to the basic ARM design in order to makes its A-series processors more power efficient."
