With the development of the industry, there are more and more disputes about technology patents, and there are many patent wars. In addition to Tianjin North, domestic RF chip manufacturers such as Beijing Angrui Microelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. (before its name change: Beijing Zhongke hantianxia Electronic Technology Co., Ltd.), Shenzhen Feiyi Technology Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Huizhi Microelectronics Co., Ltd. have also issued rights protection statements.
In 2018, Enright launched a statement to protect its rights, saying that the two chips “5124” and “5169” produced by Shenzhen Feiyi Technology Co., Ltd. were suspected of infringing the intellectual property rights of hantianxia chips. Subsequently, Feiyi technology responded that the behavior of Enright was suspected of unfair competition, and the company also issued a solemn statement.
In 2019, Shenzhen Feiyu Technology Co., Ltd. issued a statement saying that several models of RF power amplifiers manufactured, promised to be sold and sold by Guangzhou Huizhi Microelectronics Co., Ltd. were suspected of infringing the company’s zl201110025537. X invention patent right and filed a lawsuit with relevant units.
The author believes that whether in the domestic or international, the outbreak of patent war has become an inevitable trend of the development of the industry, but the more important thing is to improve their own core technology and compete with strength, better design and equipment performance.
