Pixelplus Obtains a Complete Victory at the Intellectual Property Tribunal of the Korea Intellectual Property Office on the Cancellation and Invalidation of the Disputed Process Patents Claimed by MagnaChip

SEOUL, South Korea, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pixelplus Co., Ltd. (NASDAQ: PXPL), a fabless semiconductor company in Korea that designs, develops, and markets CMOS image sensors for various consumer electronics applications, today announced that the Company obtained a completely favorable ruling from the Intellectual Property Tribunal ("IPT") of the Korea Intellectual Property Office ("KIPO") on the cancellation and invalidation of two disputed process patents claimed by MagnaChip Semiconductor ("MagnaChip").

In November 2006, the Company announced that MagnaChip filed patent infringement claims on three process patents in Seoul Central District Court. In May 2007, the Company initiated cancellation and invalidation proceedings on these three patents at the IPT at KIPO. Given the IPT's commendatory ruling on the two process patents, Pixelplus will issue a separate announcement once the IPT at KIPO provides its ruling on the one remaining disputed process patent claimed by MagnaChip.
