Flash Memory Expert Witnesses
Flash memory expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree and extensive experience in electrical engineering, integrated circuits, semiconductor manufacturing, and/or circuit design. A flash memory expert witness must have a deep understanding not only of the technology, but also of the semiconductor industry, market share and the developing technologies of the industry’s leading players. While many flash memory device consultants have forensic engineering expertise, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court, in a manner whereby lay people (the judge and jurors) can understand the technical evidence.
A popular non volatile memory, flash memory is broken down into two main types: NOR flash memory and NAND flash memory (named after their associated logic gates). Basic information on semiconductor memory technology and semiconductor manufacturing is available through a chip market report from an industry analysis provider. But a flash memory expert witness must have a deeper understanding of the chip market, its history, the progression of the technology and often an understanding of which competitors were working on various designs at different points of time during the initial development stage.
An expert witness in the semiconductor memory field will typically provide his or her expertise in intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement case, trade secret matter, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB (where the only expert testimony is through a deposition), or a proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). Less frequently, a flash memory expert might provide testimony in a torts matter like a product liability case involving the failure analysis of a consumer electronics or medical device. Litigation support activities could include reverse engineering, research, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony. Clients may also seek an experienced flash memory technology specialist for pre-litigation expert consultant work.
