Qualcomm yesterday filed suit against Texas Instruments (TI) for breach of contract, seeking to end a 2 1/2 year-old agreement to share intellectual property and patents for wireless technology. The basis of the suit is a claim by Qualcomm that TI made several public statements in early May that breached a confidentiality agreement between the two companies. The suit comes two months after TI announced it will begin making CDMA chips, a move that will put the company in direct competition with Qualcomm.
