Semiconductor Library is a subscription-based service that gives you 24/7 online access to the world’s largest library of semiconductor technical data and analysis.

Comprehensive analysis from TechInsights’ state-of the-art reverse engineering facilities

Unique genealogy shows at-a-glance the relationship between products, components, and dies for easier, faster deep-dive analysis

Enables the most fact-based IP decisions to support a wide range of use cases including licensing, defense, acquisition, divestiture, and prosecution

If you have been served with a patent infringement letter, the clock is ticking. Finding a key piece of evidence to support a prior art story is like finding a needle in a haystack. The internet and technical proceedings may help. What you really need to invalidate a patent is fast access to a consolidated archive of reliable, deeper, unpublished evidence to augment other sources and finish the job.

TechInsights has been proactively tearing down and analyzing consumer products since 1989, discovering the innovation others can’t inside electronics and semiconductor devices. Our analysis is broad and includes a variety of manufacturers from top brands like Apple and Samsung to up-and-coming mega players like Lenovo, Xiaomi, and Amazon.

Analysis by manufacturer include:

  • An easy to use web-based subscription service
  • Quickly access over 5,500 reports starting from 5 years ago and dating back to 1977
  • Reports cover a wide range of advanced technology products and semiconductor chips
  • Compliments traditional sources including technical reports, white papers, conference papers, online searches and other methods
  • Printed Publication Reports can be ordered if needed

Expand your search sources with the ultimate self-serve option for getting the critical data you need to refute patent assertion claims

Whether you are trying to invalidate a patent, prepare for a court trial or an inter partes review (IPR) or bolster arguments to significantly reduce the scope of claims (in claims construction/Markman rulings), the TechInsights Prior Art Library will be invaluable.
