SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This investigation was instituted on January 17, 2006, based on a complaint filed on behalf of Biax Corporation (‘‘Biax’’) of Boulder, Colorado. 71 FR 2565 (January 17, 2006). The complaint asserts a violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, sale for importation, or sale within the United States after importation of certain digital processors and digital processing systems, components thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of one or more claims of three U.S. patents including U.S. Patent No. 5,021,945 (‘‘the ‘945 patent’’). 71 FR 2565 (January 17, 2006). The notice of investigation named five respondents but was subsequently amended first to remove and then to add respondents. Currently, the named respondents are: Philips Semiconductor, Inc.; Philips Electronics PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60753 North America Corp.; Philips Consumer Electronics B.V.; Philips Semiconductors B.V. (collectively, ‘‘Philips’’); and 2Wire, Inc. of San Jose, California. On August 7, 2006, Philips moved for summary determination of noninfringement of the three patents at issue. On August 11, 2006, respondent 2Wire filed a motion to join Philips’ motion for summary determination. The Commission investigative attorney (‘‘IA’’) and Biax opposed the motion for summary determination. On September 6, 2006, the ALJ issued the subject ID granting Philips’ motion as to only one of the three asserted patents, the ‘945 patent. Philips filed a petition for review on September 13, 2006. On September 14, 2006, the IA filed a request to file his petition for review one day past the due date. Neither Biax nor Philips opposes this request. On September 20, 2006, Philips filed combined oppositions to Biax’s and the IA’s petitions. On September 21, 2006, Biax filed a supplement to its petition for review. On September 28, 2006, respondents opposed the supplement. The Commission’s rules do not provide for additional filings unless requested by the Commission. 19 CFR 210.43(d)(2). Therefore, we have not considered the supplement or the response. Whether the additional filings should be admitted into the record is an evidentiary matter that we leave, in the first instance, to the ALJ. The Commission, having examined the petitions for review, the responses thereto, and the relevant portions of the record has determined to review the following issues: (1) Claim construction of the limitations ‘‘logical processor number’’ and ‘‘added to each instruction,’’ (2) whether there are genuine issues of material fact precluding summary determination, and (3) the ALJ’s interpretation of the law concerning the doctrine of equivalents. The Commission has also granted the IA’s request to file his petition out of time. This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and sections 210.43 and 210.45(c) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.43 and 210.45(c)).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This investigation was instituted on January 
17, 2006, based on a complaint filed on behalf of Biax Corporation 
(``Biax'') of Boulder, Colorado. 71 FR 2565 (January 17, 2006). The 
complaint asserts a violation of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
19 U.S.C. 1337, in the importation into the United States, sale for 
importation, or sale within the United States after importation of 
certain digital processors and digital processing systems, components 
thereof, and products containing the same by reason of infringement of 
one or more claims of three U.S. patents including U.S. Patent No. 
5,021,945 (``the `945 patent''). 71 FR 2565 (January 17, 2006). The 
notice of investigation named five respondents but was subsequently 
amended first to remove and then to add respondents. Currently, the 
named respondents are: Philips Semiconductor, Inc.; Philips Electronics 
North America Corp.; Philips Consumer Electronics B.V.; Philips 
Semiconductors B.V. (collectively, ``Philips''); and 2Wire, Inc. of San 
Jose, California.
    On August 7, 2006, Philips moved for summary determination of non-
infringement of the three patents at issue. On August 11, 2006, 
respondent 2Wire filed a motion to join Philips' motion for summary 
determination. The Commission investigative attorney (``IA'') and Biax 
opposed the motion for summary determination. On September 6, 2006, the 
ALJ issued the subject ID granting Philips' motion as to only one of 
the three asserted patents, the `945 patent. Philips filed a petition 
for review on September 13, 2006. On September 14, 2006, the IA filed a 
request to file his petition for review one day past the due date. 
Neither Biax nor Philips opposes this request. On September 20, 2006, 
Philips filed combined oppositions to Biax's and the IA's petitions. On 
September 21, 2006, Biax filed a supplement to its petition for review. 
On September 28, 2006, respondents opposed the supplement. The 
Commission's rules do not provide for additional filings unless 
requested by the Commission. 19 CFR 210.43(d)(2). Therefore, we have 
not considered the supplement or the response. Whether the additional 
filings should be admitted into the record is an evidentiary matter 
that we leave, in the first instance, to the ALJ.
    The Commission, having examined the petitions for review, the 
responses thereto, and the relevant portions of the record has 
determined to review the following issues: (1) Claim construction of 
the limitations ``logical processor number'' and ``added to each 
instruction,'' (2) whether there are genuine issues of material fact 
precluding summary determination, and (3) the ALJ's interpretation of 
the law concerning the doctrine of equivalents. The Commission has also 
granted the IA's request to file his petition out of time.
    This action is taken under the authority of section 337 of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and sections 210.43 
and 210.45(c) of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 
CFR 210.43 and 210.45(c)).

     Issued: October 10, 2006.

    By order of the Commission.

Marilyn R. Abbott,
Secretary to the Commission.
