Both new cases mention the same two patents which are claimed to have been violated by Apple with its iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch mobile devices, as well as Mac desktops and notebooks.
The patents in question are:
- No. 5,945,997 entitled "block- and band-oriented traversal in three-dimensional triangle rendering"
- No. 5,581,279 entitled "VGA controller circuitry"
As 'usual', the ITC complaint asks for a US import ban on infringing Apple products, while the Delaware case focuses on monetary damages.
