In 2019, u-blox filed claims against TTT for both copyright and patent infringement after u blox noticed similarities of functionalities of TTT’ s TD1030 chip and corresponding modules with u-blox’s M8 GNSS receivers. Following in-depth investigations, including reviews and analyses conducted by independent laboratories, u-blox concluded that the similarities must have been the result of illegal copying of u-blox’s source code by Techtotop.

According to the Court’s decision, TTT must stop producing and distributing its TD1030 navigation chip and navigation modules with the infringing software.

“u-blox is very pleased with the decision of the Court which issued a fair and decisive ruling on a complex source code infringement case,” stated Thomas Seiler, CEO of u-blox. “Our technologies are the result of our commitment to continuous research and development, and it is our responsibility to vigorously pursue any and all unauthorized uses.”
