Tyco Electronics and FCI Announce High Speed Backplane Connector Cross Licensing Agreement


FCI and Tyco Electronics announce that they have reached an agreement to terminate all litigations between the two companies relating to FCI’s AirMax and Tyco Electronics’ Z-PACK MAX high speed back panel connector product families. This agreement permits Tyco Electronics to continue to service their existing customers who are either using or intending to use their Z-PACK MAX product family on identified equipment platforms.

Tyco Electronics is ceasing further promotion of their Z-PACK MAX product family and will be introducing a new high speed backplane connector product family named Z-PACK TinMan in the near future. This new product family, Z-PACK TinMan, will be covered by the agreement. This agreement further provides for continued promotion of FCI’s AirMax product line throughout the world free of any claims of Tyco Electronics.
