FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German chipmaker Infineon (IFXGn.DE) said it has settled a patent infringement claim against Atmel (ATML.O), ending a legal dispute that has been ongoing for more than two years.
As part of the settlement, Atmel will pay Infineon an undisclosed sum, Infineon sad in a statement on Friday.
