Sendo Holdings has dropped its lawsuit against Orange regarding disputed smartphone circuit board patents after reaching a licensing agreement with Orange supplier Texas Instruments.
Sendo filed the suit against Orange's UK operations last month for distributing circuit boards which, allegedly, infringed on its patents.
"We always said that it was regrettable that we had to file the suit against a distributor, but if you don't take action it devaluates your patent," said Marijke van Hooren, director of communications at Sendo.
Van Hooren declined to give the details of Sendo's licensing agreement with Texas but said that Sendo is "pleased with the deal".
Representatives for Orange in the UK were not immediately available to comment on the withdrawal of the suit.
