After the success of the 3G/3GS/4, Samsung made the unilateral decision to invalidate the contract that Infineon had for the patents, and then asked Apple for a crazy amount (2.4 or 2.7% depending on where you read it) for each phone sold, and that was to be determined against the ENTIRE cost of the phone (almost $16 for a 16GB model!)! 4.gif1eek.gif

Perhaps you're thinking of Qualcomm.

 

Infineon chips never had a license contract for Samsung's patents, until Intel bought the company in January 2011.

 

E.g. as noted last year, in a case in the Netherlands..

 

"The court did not find Samsung's patent rights to be exhausted with respect to baseband chips Apple purchased from Infineon until January 2011.

 

"Concerning baseband chips Apple subsequently purchased from Intel (which acquired Infineon's mobile baseband chip division), the court granted Apple leave to make a case for patent exhaustion based on an analysis under U.S. law. "
