Camtek claims patent infringement by Rudolph Technologies

Camtek has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Rudolph Technologies Inc.
The patent infringement lawsuit, filed in German Federal court, alleges that Rudolph’s edge inspection equipment sold under the “Axi” and “Edge Inspection module E25, 30, 35” trademark infringes Camtek’s patent no. DE 101 31 665 B4.

Roy Porat, Camtek's Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Camtek views its IP as a valuable asset allowing it to achieve technological advantage over its competitors, and will vigorously protect its assets against violators to the full extent permitted by the law. Camtek views its German Semiconductor business with great importance; the German Semiconductor market is an important part of the global market in general and the European market in particular, and, many German Foundries and IDMs have manufacturing facilities in Asia and the US as well."
