Nvidia claims it was forced to wind down its cellular mobile broadband chipset business, including its Icera unit just four years after buying it, as a result of Qualcomm’s "unlawful abuse of dominance," according to documents released by a London court Tuesday.The court filings reveal NVIDIA is seeking a declaration from the judge that Qualcomm abused its dominant market position, as well as compensation and an account of the profits Qualcomm may have gained from unlawful conduct. Full details at Bloomberg.
Qualcomm’s alleged tactics led to "unexplained delays in customer orders, reductions in demand volumes and contracts never being entered into, even after a customer or mobile network cooperating with a prospective customer has agreed or expressed a strong intention to purchase" Nvidia’s chipsets, the company said in the lawsuit.
