NVIDIA has yet to respond to the lawsuit filed by Scanner Technologies, in which they claim NVIDIA sold products based on a 3D BGA inspection system, used to ensure product reliability. Along with seeking undisclosed damages, Scanner Technologies is also going after preliminary and permanent injunctions, as well legal fees and court fees.
"The complaint alleges that nVidia has sold and/or is presently selling throughout the United States infringing BGA devices that are covered by one or more claims of the Scanner Patents. The complaint also alleges that nVidia has induced others to infringe. These BGA devices are a component in graphics cards, motherboards, computers, video game consoles, cell phones and handheld devices that are sold in the United States."
