手機晶片大廠高通(Qualcomm)公司和無線通訊晶片大廠博通(Broadcom)於2009年4月26日宣布,雙方達成協議,高通同意於未來四年期間分期支付博通(Broadcom)8.91億美元,撤回多年來兩家公司相關專利訴訟案件。

高通將於6月底前,先支付博通2億美元,此次協議結果包括,美國國際貿易委員會(ITC)、美國聯邦地方法院等專利侵權訴訟的和解,而博通亦撤回在歐洲委員會、韓國公平貿易委員會等地提告。

根據雙方達成的協議,這兩家公司同意將某些權利授予對方而形成各自的專利組合。高通宣稱該協議的條款,對於高通公司的3G(例如CDMA2000,WCDMA和TD-SCDMA )和4G(如:LTE和WiMAX )專利授權模式,將不會因此導致任何改變。

本網站針對高通和博通的美國專利訴訟進行搜查,調查自2001年至2009年4月30日止,初步統計獲知共計有12件訟案,約涉及27件專利。就提告者來看,高通共計有4件訟案,博通共計有8件訟案,如表一。
