Melexis wins patent infringement lawsuit from ams AG

Intermediate declaration by the Board of Directors

Ieper, Belgium - December 20th, 2017, 17.45 hrs CET


Today the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf, Germany, handed down a decision in a patent infringement case filed by ams AG concerning the patent EP 0 916 074 B1. The Court has ruled in Melexis' favor by dismissing the complaint of ams AG.


The decision comes after a lengthy judicial process which started in 2009 when ams AG filed a patent infringement case against Melexis for a specific version of a rotary position sensor. Today's ruling demonstrates that the contested product results from Melexis' proprietary know-how and technology.


We are pleased to put this judicial process behind us and continue to be pioneers in new and innovative technologies for the automotive and adjacent markets.
