SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on April 9, 2001, based on a complaint filed by Proxim, Inc. (“Proxim”) against 14 respondents. Three companies subsequently intervened, including Agere Systems Inc. (“Agere”). In its complaint, Proxim contended that respondents” accused products infringed the patent claims in issue because they contained either semiconductors made by intervenor Agere (“the Agere parties”) or by respondent Intersil Corp. (“the Intersil parties”).

On September 25, 2002, the Commission determined not to review an ID by the then presiding ALJ terminating the investigation as to the Agere parties on the basis of a settlement agreement. Only the Intersil parties then remained in the investigation.

On March 17, 2003, Proxim and Intersil entered into a settlement agreement. On May 5, 2003, Proxim and the Intersil parties filed a joint motion to terminate the investigation on the basis of the settlement agreement. The Commission investigative attorney supported the joint motion.

On May 15, 2003, the current presiding ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 106) granting the joint motion of Proxim and the Intersil parties to terminate the investigation on the basis of a settlement agreement. No party filed a petition to review the ID.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in § 210.42 of the Commission's rules of practice and procedure (19 CFR § 210.42).
