Rogers Corporation Files Patent Infringement Lawsuits

By Business Wire News


Rogers Corporation (NYSE:ROG), today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Rogers Germany GmbH, has filed two separate patent infringement lawsuits in Mannheim, Germany against KCC Corporation of Seoul, Korea and its German subsidiary KCC Europe GmbH with its registered office in Cologne. In these two complaints, Rogers alleges that KCC infringes a Rogers patent by offering in Germany direct bonded copper (DBC) substrates that were manufactured using a process that is patented in Germany (European Patent No. 1 412 307).

“Rogers is a technology leader in providing materials-based solutions in many different application areas, and we will enforce our patent rights to protect our substantial investment in innovation,” said Robert C. Daigle, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Rogers Corporation.

DBC substrates are electrically insulating and thermally conductive industrial ceramics to which copper foil has been directly bonded. The result is a metallized ceramic substrate with high thermal conductivity, superior heat spreading capability and low thermal expansion properties, all of which are essential for high performance power electronics applications.
