Tridonic Files Lawsuit against Ingram Micro Distribution

Tridonic Jennersdorf, a subsidiary of Tridonic and a member of the Zumtobel Group lighting group, has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against the German company, Ingram Micro Distribution.

Tridonic Jennersdorf , together with Toyoda Gosei, a Japanese company, Leuchtstoffwerk Breitungen and Litec in Germany, made up the B.O.S.E. Consortium which owns basic patents for the technology generating white light with blue LEDs and yellow silicate phosphors.

In 2017, Tridonic initiated patent lawsuits against telecommunication retailer S-KON eKontor24. Although District Court Munich I affirmed Tridonic’s arguments, the two parties agreed on a settlement for reasons of legal certainty and prompt settlement of the dispute.

Silicate-based white LED technology enables the manufacture of white LEDs with high accuracy and high brightness. Primary applications of such LEDs include smartphones, laptops, GPS systems and other display products. The technology is of relevance to a substantial share of today’s LED market, as claimed by Tridonic. The B.O.S.E. Consortium offers licensing arrangements to make this white LED technology available to the LED industry and has already concluded licensing agreements with more than 40 LED manufacturers worldwide.
