IN RE: POWER INTEGRATIONS, INC.

- Category: CAFC Updates
Power Integrations filed petitions for a writ of mandamus. The petitions challenge the decisions of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board denying the institution of inter partes review of claims from three patents relating to power conversion integrated circuits owned by Semiconductor Components Industries, LLC. The CAFC holds that mandamus does not lie in this case, both because PI has not shown a clear and indisputable right to issuance of the writ and because relief by way of mandamus would not be appropriate here and thus denies the petitions.
