The tentative ban Broadcom won against Emulex earlier this month is now permanent. The chipmaker said today that a federal court made permanent an injunction that prevents Emulex from selling controller chips that were found to infringe two Broadcom patents. Emulex’s BladeEngine2 and BladeEngine3 Ethernet controllers and Lancer chips are among the affected products. Under the terms of the ruling Emulex can continue to sell those products for another 13 – 15 months to customers who have already ordered them, but it must pay Broadcom a 9 percent royalty.
