On February 6, 2015, ALJ Thomas B. Pender issued Order No. 12 in Certain Devices Containing Non-Volatile Memory and Products Containing the Same (Inv. No. 337-TA-922).

By way of background, this investigation is based on a June 27, 2014 complaint filed by Macronix International Co., Ltd. and Macronix America, Inc. (collectively, "Macronix") alleging violation of Section 337 in the importation into the U.S. and sale of certain devices containing non-volatile memory and products containing the same that infringe one or more claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 5,998,826 ("the '826 patent"); 6,031,757 ("the '757 patent"); 8,341,324 ("the '324 patent"); and 8,341,330 ("the '330 patent").  See our June 30, 2014 and August 4, 2014 posts for more details on the complaint and Notice of Investigation, respectively.

According to the Order, ALJ Pender granted a joint motion filed by Macronix and Respondents to terminate the investigation based on a settlement agreement.
