WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. International Trade Commission on Wednesday said it would initiate an investigation of certain integrated circuits, chipsets and electronic devices, based on a complaint filed by NXP Semiconductors NV (NASDAQ:) of Taiwan and its U.S. unit.
NXP alleges that imports of these products infringe on the company’s patents, and has asked the ITC to issue a limited order halting such imports, the agency said.
The U.S. ITC said the probe would focus on imports by MediaTek Inc of Taiwan and its U.S. subsidiary; Amazon (NASDAQ:); Belkin International and Linksys.
