Altair’s application in interference is related to Altair’s fundamental patent for replacement of fluorescent light tubes with LED technology. The judgment ordered all claims of interfering patent number 6,860,628 to be cancelled and further established Altair as having precedent claims.
"ilumisys has a significant body of patent work related to our technology," said ilumisys President Dave Simon. "We’re pleased with this ruling and look forward to continuing to develop the leading-edge lighting technology in the LED-based lighting industry."
ilumisys, formed in 2007, is a spinoff of Altair, a global software and technology company that has a growing presence in the energy market. With support from Altair, ilumisys has a deep research and development background. The company recently expanded its reseller network to include companies covering the Northeast, Midwest and West Coast territories.
