Nvidia Corp. and Cirrus Logic Inc. entered into a cross-license agreement and have settled all outstanding litigation between the companies.

Earlier this year, Cirrus Logic brought suit against Nvidia and ATI Technologies Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, Austin Division, for infringement of a Cirrus patent relating to graphics processor technology. Nvidia then counterclaimed against Cirrus, alleging infringement of patents owned by Nvidia relating to audio-controller technology.

Under the settlement agreement, all outstanding claims and counterclaims in the lawsuit between Cirrus and Nvidia will be dismissed. In connection with the settlement, Cirrus Logic will transfer to Nvidia a portion of its patent portfolio relating to the former graphics products group of its PC products division, a business that Cirrus exited several years ago.
