Sina technology news beijing early january 10 news, the company is accused of stealing trade secrets and in its apple watch smartwatch improper use of masimo corp.'s health monitoring invention.
Masimo is a company that develops signal processing technology for medical monitoring devices. The company and its spin-off Cercacor Laboratories alleged in a lawsuit filed in federal court on Thursday that Apple obtained classified information under the guise of a working relationship and then hired Masimo employees. The lawsuit says Apple has infringed 10 of Masimo's patents.
Masimo and Cercacor said their technology for non-invasive monitoring was key to Apple's efforts to overcome its Apple Watch performance problems, including the use of luminaries and detectors to measure blood oxygen content and heart rate.
Apple contacted Masimo in 2013 and wanted to cooperate, according to a complaint filed in federal court in Santa Ana, Calif. Mr Masimo said Apple wanted to \"learn more about Masimo's technology in order to integrate it into Apple products.\"
After what Mr. Masimo considered a fruitful meeting, Apple began hiring key staff, including Mr. Masimo's chief medical officer and Mr. Cercacor's chief technical officer. Two companies said Apple knew they were getting classified information from the two men.
\"Given that access to information and expertise from Masimo and Cercacor appears to be targeted, Masimo and Cercacor warned Apple to respect its rights,\" the companies said in their complaint.
Masimo and Cercacor, who are also seeking to add its engineers to four patents that have been granted to former technology executives at Cercacor, said the person understood the ideas during the company, not from his own research. That would make Masimo and Cercacor owners, or at least joint owners, of the four patents already assigned to Apple.
