Texas Instruments and 3Dlabs have settled their legal dispute and said they will expand their relationship around 3Dlabs Permedia 2 products with new marketing and support programs.
The two companies agreed to settle all pending litigation out of court, related to a suit filed against TI by 3Dlabs in which it alleged TI had published confidential information on its web site.
TI has been producing Permedia graphics chips under a foundry agreement along with SGS-Thomson. “Leveraging our mixed-signal design expertise and working closely with 3Dlabs, we plan to increase the penetration of Permedia 2 technology in the market,” said Del Whitaker, Senior Vice President of TI.
3Dlabs also reported new OEM design wins for its Permedia 2 and Glint processors which include Acer, Appian, ELSA, Fujitsu, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, NEC and MaxVision, following recent design wins for Permedia 2 with Compaq and Dell.
