TI to License Patents from Dali Wireless for Wireless Communication Systems

Texas Instruments (TI) has signed an agreement with Dali Wireless to license Dali’s US Patent No. 8,149,950 for wireless communication system applications. TI, a global semiconductor design and manufacturing company, under the agreement, will sell its GC53xx devices to prospective customers as well as have access to Dali’s ‘950 Patent which covers digital predistortion technology for power amplifiers in wireless communication systems.

This announcement follows directly on the resolution of a patent infringement lawsuit with Fiplex Communications in which Fiplex agreed to license Dali’s U.S. Patent Numbers 9,419,7149,439,242 and 9,622,148 for its Public Safety Digital DAS products. The named patents relate to various fundamental technologies for next generation Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).

Still outstanding is a lawsuit against CommScope for infringement of Dali patents concerning certain fundamental technologies for digital DAS and digital predistortion technology.

Dali has an extensive worldwide patent portfolio dating back to 2006 when the company first focused on inventing digital predistortion and radio frequency distribution technology. The company has been recognized as a Hot Tech Innovator by ABI Research in each of the past three years and its patents are critically important to enabling 5G and virtual Radio Access Networks (vRAN). The company continues to invest in innovation and is committed to actively protecting its innovations and intellectual property rights.
