-AMD's Intellectual Property Productivity Ranks Among the Top Corporations in the World


-AMD's Intellectual Property Productivity Ranks Among the Top Corporations in the World-

SUNNYVALE, CA-OCTOBER 24, 2000-AMD and Derwent Information today announced that AMD's recent patent for an integrated circuit transistor has become the 10 millionth patent record to be added to Derwent Information's flagship database - the Derwent World Patents Index (Derwent WPI). "AMD is one of the world's leaders in process technology," said Mark Houghton, Director for Integrated Products at Derwent. "Last year, they ranked 17th in the world in terms of U.S. patents awarded."

"AMD generates a substantial amount of leading edge technology, as indicated by our ranking," said Harry Wolin, VP of Intellectual Property at AMD. "When you consider how much larger those companies are who rank above us on the list, I think it's pretty clear that, pound for pound, AMD is one of world's true leaders in terms of innovation."

According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, patent applications have increased by more than 50% since 1992. Keeping abreast of patents awarded in the United States and across the globe is more crucial than ever. "The 10 millionth record marks a significant milestone," said AMD's Harry Wolin. Mark Houghton, Director for Integrated Products at Derwent, agreed. "That is now 10 million inventions, whose patent applications have been translated, abstracted, indexed and made searchable within Derwent WPI, providing thousands of companies from around the world with an excellent source of technical, scientific and business information."

"The ability to secure patents is integral to AMD's success," said Bill Siegle, Chief Scientist at AMD. "We encourage our employee-inventors to apply for them. Clearly, there is a direct relationship between winning patents on the one hand and creating products, such as the AMD Athlon(tm) processor, which has won more than 50 awards world-wide, since it was introduced over a year ago."
