ARM And Qualcomm Are Still Fighting In Court Over Technology Patent Issues

Two years ago, ARM filed a court suit against Qualcomm for its takeover of Nuvia, an ARM technology developer responsible for introducing the first series of Apple Silicon processing chips, the Apple M1.

This is because the acquisition of Nuvia by Qualcomm gave Qualcomm a large number of ARM patents that other companies cannot take advantage of that also use the company's technology to develop their own processing chips.

Qualcomm has just launched the Snapdragon X Elite and X Plus laptop processing chips and has recently started collaboration with Microsoft and many other laptop makers.

It is expected that laptops powered by the Snapdragon X chip and Microsoft will take a relatively high percentage of the market, where the number of laptops powered by the Snapdragon X will be sold in the millions.

In fact, Qualcomm's NPU design to power Microsoft's AI CoPilot was developed using a patent owned by Nuvia, and Qualcomm is seen as the only ARM chip maker that can use this technology.

If ARM wins this court case, they will certainly ask for these brands to stop selling laptops that use technology for which Qualcomm holds a large number of these patents.

It is still uncertain, but there is also a possibility that ARM and Qualcomm will settle this patent ownership issue out of court to ensure that the various parties who have already started manufacturing this series of laptops.
