SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Commission instituted this investigation on December 21, 2011, based on a complaint filed by Elpida Memory, Inc. of Tokyo, Japan and Elpida Memory (USA) Inc. of Sunnyvale, California (collectively, “Elpida”). 76 FR 79215 (Dec. 21, 2011). The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), by reason of infringement of various claims of seven United States patents. The Commission issued a notice of investigation naming Nanya Technology Corporation of TaoYuan, Taiwan and Nanya Technology Corporation, U.S.A. of Santa Clara, California (collectively, “Nanya”) as respondents.

On February 13, 2012, Elpida filed a motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation to assert five additional claims from one of the seven patents originally asserted against Nanya. The claims in question are claims 5, 17, 18, 21, and 29 of U.S. Patent No. 7,495,453. On February 22, 2012, Nanya opposed the motion to amend.

On May 10, 2012, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 7) granting the motion to amend the complaint and notice of investigation. 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 section 210.42(h)(3) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42(h)(3)).

By order of the Commission.

Issued: May 31, 2012.

Lisa R. Barton,

Acting Secretary to the Commission.
