SiRF City, here they come ...
Everybody seems to be getting into the Beach Boys theme this month
According to a recent post, u-Nav Microelectronics Corporation has filed a counterclaim for patent infringement against SiRF Technology, Inc., in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, alleging that certain SiRF products, including its SiRFstarIII product line, infringe u-Nav's U.S. Patent No. 6,909,739.
Even though u-Nav admits that it is a fabless semiconductor company that develops GPS chipsets and software for the emerging mobile location based services market, the IdeaCop(tm) is unable to say that this patent looks 'fabless, darling'
At any rate, on the off-chance that someone out there wants to help SiRF to hang 10, we have put together some potentially relevant prior art references for the '739 patent in the attached file for their use.
Post your comments and alternative references.
