Technology licensing company WiLAN Inc said on Friday that chipmaker Intel had agreed to pay it to use patented technology, ending all litigation between the two companies.
WiLAN did not disclose the value of the settlement.
WiLAN expects a final definitive agreement to be signed within the next few weeks, it said in a statement.
The trial had been due to resume in early February after being delayed in December.
The Canadian company served notice in October 2007 to several companies, including Apple Inc, Dell Inc, Hewlett-Packard Co and Intel claiming they had infringed its wireless patents.
