Intel pays $225 million to end Intergraph case

Intel Corp. will pay Intergraph Corp. $225 million to settle a long-running patent dispute, the companies said Tuesday. Separately, Integraph said it has dismissed charges against PC maker Dell Inc. stemming from a related patent dispute.

Santa Clara, California-based Intel and Intergraph, in Huntsville, Alabama, have been tangled in litigation since 2001, when Intergraph sued Intel for alleged infringement of two patents on parallel-computing technology. A Texas court ruled in Intergraph's favor in late 2002, but an appeals court vacated that judgment in February, sending the case back to the lower court for further examination. Intel and Intergraph said Tuesday's settlement resolves their disagreement, and that they will move for dismissal of the case.
