SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted Inv. No. 337-TA-607 based on a complaint filed by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. of Seoul, Korea (“Samsung”) on May 7, 2007. 72 FR 32863 (June 14, 2007). The complaint, as amended, alleged 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 semiconductor devices, DMA systems, and products containing same by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent No. 5,613,162 and U.S. Patent No. 7,064,026. The notice of investigation named Renesas Technology Corp. of Tokyo, Japan and Renesas Technology America, Inc. of San Jose, California (collectively, “Renesas”) as respondents. The complaint, as amended, further alleged that an industry in the United States exists as required by subsection 337(a)(2).

On April 25, 2008, Samsung and Renesas jointly moved to terminate the investigation based on a settlement agreement. On April 29, 2008, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the motion.

On May 19, 2008, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 73) granting the joint motion to terminate the investigation based on a settlement agreement. The ALJ found that the joint motion complied with the requirements of Commission Rule 210.21(b) (19 CFR 210.21(b)). In addition, the ALJ concluded, pursuant to Commission Rule 210.50(b)(2) (19 CFR 210.50(b)(2)), that there is no evidence that termination of this investigation will prejudice the public interest. No petitions for review of this 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 section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
