Day 2's Order of Play was:

  • Plaintiff's case-in-chief
    • Dr. Michael C. Brogioli, Ph.D., Infringement Expert
    • Dr. Murali Annavaram, Testing Expert
    • Deposition designations for several Intel witnesses

It became clear that as to both asserted patents, VLSI's infringement allegations centered on the "FIVR," or fully integrated voltage regulator, feature of the accused chips. According to VLSI, Intel added the FIVR feature to the chips in 2013, which was highly valued by Intel customers. Dr. Annavaram testified that, according to tests he did using Intel benchmark tools, the accused FIVR feature greatly increased the performance of the accused chips. Today, VLSI's damages expert Dr. Sullivan will testify.
