Item 8.01.                Other Events


The Company is currently the defendant in a lawsuit filed by Cypress Semiconductor Corporation in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California alleging that certain of the Company’s products infringe patents held by Cypress and the plaintiff in a separate lawsuit pending in the same court in which the Company has alleged that Cypress has violated federal and state antitrust laws.  Reference is made to “Item 1. Legal Proceedings” in Part II of the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 for information regarding this litigation.


On May 6, 2015, the Company and Cypress entered into a settlement agreement to resolve the litigation.  Under the settlement agreement:


·                  Each of the parties agreed to dismiss its lawsuit with prejudice in consideration of the dismissal with prejudice of the lawsuit brought by the other party; and


·                  Each party will release all claims against the other with respect to issues raised in the two lawsuits.


The parties agreed that the settlement agreement was entered into to resolve disputed claims, and that each party denies any liability to the other party.
