Power Integrations announced that it has won a favorable decision in its patent-infringement case against System General Corp. (SG), filed last year with the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC).

According to Power Integrations, the administrative law judge hearing the case has ruled that certain SG power-supply controllers infringe on their U.S. Patent Nos. 6,351,398 and 6,538,908, and that SG is therefore in violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930.

"Intellectual property is the lifeblood of our business, and we are gratified that our patents have been upheld in this investigation," said Balu Balakrishnan, president and CEO of Power Integrations, in a statement. "This decision is an unmitigated victory for Power Integrations, one that will help remove the burden of unfair competition from the marketplace."

Power Integrations filed its complaint with the ITC in May 2005. Earlier, in June 2004, the company had filed a patent-infringement lawsuit against SG in the Federal District Court in San Francisco.
