Carsem, a leading provider of turnkey packaging and test services to the semiconductor industry, announced today that the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has reversed the U. S. International Trade Commission (ITC) decision in the ongoing patent litigation between Amkor and Carsem. Case number 2010-1550 (US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit: Amkr Technology Inc –vs- International Trade Commision)
The Court has remanded the matter to the ITC for further proceedings consistent with the decision, and Carsem now has 45 days in which to file a petition for re-hearing.
