White LEDs made in Taiwan installed in amusement machines of major amusement manufacturer

NICHIA CORPORATION (NICHIA) announced today that it had reached a settlement with a major amusement machine manufacturer, after discussing with the manufacturer the possible relevance between NICHIA's patents and the white LEDs which were manufactured by Taiwan Oasis Technology Co., Ltd. (Oasis Co.) and installed in the amusement machines assembled by the manufacturer. The manufacturer and NICHIA have signed a contract in which the manufacturer agreed to stop using the LEDs made by Oasis Co. and instead to purchase LEDs from NICHIA.

Based on NICHIA's findings that the products manufactured by OASIS CO. infringe NICHIA's patents, NICHIA have started an inquiry on the sales of the products concerned to other customers.
