London: The patent infringement lawsuit that was initiated by chipmaker Infineon in November 2008 against Fairchild Semiconductor has been settled. The lawsuit was filed on 14 patents related to super-junction power transistors along with trench power MOSFETs and IGBT power transistors, reports EE Times.

The suit was settled through a broad patent cross license relating to technology and Fairchild will make payments to Infineon. Currently, Infineon is in patent licensing discussions with a number of semiconductor firms and it views such discussions as essential to the continuing protection of its intellectual property and business interests.

Both the companies will now inform the U.S. District Court, District of Delaware about the settlement and will also file a stipulation of dismissal. The specific terms and conditions of the agreement were not disclosed.
