In a victory for VLSI Technology, a Texas jury concluded that Intel owes the patent holding company $948 million for patent infringement, delivering one of the largest patent damages in U.S. history. VLSI argued during the six-day trial that Intel's Cascade Lake and Skylake microprocessors violated its patent covering improvements to data processing.

Akerman intellectual property partner Timothy Sendek in Chicago commented on the magnitude of the verdict in a World Intellectual Property Review article titled, "Chipmaker Hit With $948M Jury Loss."

“This is a very significant verdict not only for the amount of damages awarded—almost a billion dollars before any judgment for willful infringement, attorneys fees, or interest—but also as a decisive win for VLSI coming on the heels of Intel successfully reincarnating a previously-denied inter partes review,” said Sendek.
