SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This investigation was instituted on February 13, 2006, based on a complaint filed by SanDisk Corporation of Sunnyvale, California. The complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1337) in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain NOR and NAND flash memory devices and products containing same by reason of infringement of various claims of United States Patent Nos. 5,172,338 (“the ’338 patent”); 5,991,517 (“the ’517 patent”); and 6,542,956 (“the ’956 patent”). The complaint named two respondents: STMicroelectronics N.V. of Geneva, Switzerland and STMicroelectronics, Inc. of Carrollton, Texas (collectively, “ST”).

On May 17, 2006, the ALJ granted, by an ID issued June 1, 2006, SanDisk's motion for partial termination of the investigation with respect to the ’956 patent. The Commission issued a notice that it determined not to review the ID on June 19, 2006.

On June 1, 2007, the ALJ issued the final ID finding no violation of Section 337 in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation or the sale within the United States after importation, of certain NOR and NAND flash memory devices and products containing the same in connection with the asserted claims of the ’517 and ’338 patents. No petitions for review of the ID were filed. The Commission has determined not 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 Start Printed Page 39445§ 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
