Keywords:Power Integrations  System General  International Trade Commission 

Power Integrations has announced that the International Trade Commission (ITC) has issued its final determination in the company's patent-infringement case against System General Corp. (SG). The ITC has confirmed the administrative law judge's determination that certain of SG's power-supply controllers infringe Power Integrations U.S. Patent Nos. 6,351,398 and 6,538,908, and that SG is therefore in violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930.

The ITC has also issued an exclusion order against SG's infringing products, which include the SG6840, SG6841, SG6841x3, SG6842, SG6842J and SG6843. The exclusion order prohibits the importation of these parts into the United States, as well as the importation of any LCD monitors and AC printer adapters containing the infringing parts. The exclusion order is expected to become effective upon the close of the 60-day Presidential review period, which begins immediately. During the review period, any importer of an infringing SG chip must pay a bond of Rs.17.65 (38 cents) for each imported infringing chip or each imported product containing an infringing chip.
