Harvard settles dielectrics patent suit

Department: Business
Keywords: Electronic materials, dielectrics, patent suit, Harvard, Micron Technology

Harvard University says it has reached an “amicable resolution” of a lawsuit it filed in 2016 against the computer chip maker Micron Technology for violating a chemistry professor’s patents. The suit, like one earlier filed against GlobalFoundries, involved patents for metal alkylamide-based high-K dielectric films used to create insulating layers in memory chips. Harvard chemistry professor Roy G. Gordon and members of his lab invented the technology. Harvard settled with GlobalFoundries last year.
