Network-1 Subsidiary Receives New Patent from U.S. Patent Office Expanding its HFT Patent Portfolio to Include 9 Issued U.S. Patents
NEW CANAAN, CT / ACCESSWIRE / February 13, 2023 / Network-1 Technologies, Inc. (NYSE American:NTIP), a company engaged in the acquisition, development, licensing, and monetization of intellectual property, announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued U.S. Patent No. 11,575,381 (Field Programmable Gate Array with External Phase-Locked Loop) to its wholly-owned subsidiary (HFT Solutions, LLC). The claims in the newly issued patent are generally directed toward certain advanced technologies relating to high frequency trading.
The newly issued patent arises from a patent application contained in the HFT patent portfolio acquired by HFT Solutions in March 2022 (the "HFT Patent Portfolio"). The HFT Patent Portfolio relates to, among other things, technologies used by firms engaged in high frequency trading activities that utilize custom field-programmable gate array (FPGA) hardware, including clock domain management technology that provides critical transaction latency gains in trading systems where the difference between success and failure may be measured in nanoseconds.
With this latest issuance, the HFT Patent Portfolio now includes nine (9) issued U.S. patents and two (2) pending U.S. patent applications. The patent terms of the HFT Patent Portfolio are currently expected to extend until 2039. HFT Solutions anticipates further issuances of additional claims for the HFT Patent Portfolio.
