CUPERTINO, Calif. – June 2nd, 2009 – Alliacense today announced that SANYO Electric Co. Ltd. has purchased a Moore Microprocessor Patent™ (MMP) Portfolio license from The TPL Group. SANYO joins a distinguished roster of over 55 other global systems manufacturers that have become MMP Licensees.
“We commend the SANYO Business Team for their comprehensive study of the MMP Portfolio and decisive action to secure a License and see through the general misinformation proffered by microprocessor suppliers in the market” said Roy Maharaj, Vice President of Licensing for Alliacense. “The continued growth and momentum of the MMP Program is unquestionable and we encourage other prospective licensees to move quickly on the remaining licensing opportunities.“
The sweeping scope of applications using MMP Portfolio design techniques continues to encourage the world’s leading manufacturers of end-user products from around the globe to become MMP Portfolio licensees. Over 55 global companies from the US, Europe, Japan, Korea and Taiwan have licensed the MMP Portfolio technologies.
The MMP Portfolio patents, filed by The TPL Group in the 1980s, cover techniques that enable higher performance and lower cost designs, and are fundamental to consumer and commercial digital systems ranging from DVD players, cell phones and portable music players to communications infrastructure, medical equipment — and automobiles which today have dozens of microprocessor-based key features and benefits.
