July 21, according to foreign media reports, Intel involved in Apple - Qualcomm patent disputes, accused Qualcomm trying to use the court to kill the mobile phone chip competition. The chip giant made a public statement to the US International Trade Commission on Thursday night that the statement was part of the allegations that Apple's iPhone had violated Qualcomm's six patents.

The case is related to Intel's fierce competition, Intel said he was "Qualcomm in the mobile phone chip market, the only competitor."

Intel's statement is Qualcomm's latest deal with Apple. Since January this year, the two companies have been competing for patents, when Apple filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm, and said that the wireless chip maker did not provide fair licensing terms for its technology, it hopes to use high-pass technology in Apple equipment Can pay a lower fee.

The world's largest mobile chip supplier Qualcomm insisted that if you do not rely on Qualcomm's basic mobile phone technology, any modern mobile phone (including iPhone) are impossible to achieve. A significant portion of the company's revenue comes from royalties for licensing technical licenses to hundreds of handset manufacturers and other vendors.

Intel's statement continues to accuse Qualcomm of monopolizing the so-called "unlicensed, non-chip" anti-competitive behavior on mobile modems.

Intel said the policy requires equipment manufacturers to pay "high" royalties to QUALCOMM, whether or not it contains Qualcomm chips.

Intel said that any differences will face the threat of cutting the equipment manufacturers supply chips.

Another reason why Qualcomm is accused of anti-competitive behavior is that it refuses to authorize its competitors to standard patents, which cover technologies that are considered essential to the industry and must be fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (Fair Reasonable and Nondis, referred to as FRAND) to the competitor.

But Intel claims that Qualcomm has refused to provide some standard patents to chipmakers, which violates FRAND's commitment.
Intel also accused Qualcomm of entering into an agreement with Apple that iPhone manufacturers only use Qualcomm chips in exchange for a lower license fee, which includes competitors, which is detrimental to competition.

"These agreements make it impossible for rivals such as Intel to compete with Apple's key business," Intel said.
Apple said it has been trying to reach a license agreement with Qualcomm for more than five years, but said QUALCOMM's terms are unfair.

The International Trade Commission may begin to review complaints in August and is expected to be tried next year.
