Qualcomm settles patent cases with Broadcom

Rivals Qualcomm and Broadcom have agreed to end two court disputes over patents, an Associated Press report said.

The Associated Press report said the deal was the latest twist in a ferocious legal battle between the two companies over licensing agreements, which has spawned a web of suits and countersuits from California to Europe relating to technologies that power cell phones, Bluetooth devices and wireless Internet equipment.

Neither company disclosed financial terms or details of the agreement, the report said.

The settlement eliminates two of several jury trials scheduled for this year between the rivals, one involving Broadcom claims that Qualcomm infringed two of its patents and another in which Qualcomm claimed its competitor violated two of its patents, the report said.
