Wi-LAN just announced that Atheros has also reached an agreement to end litigation.

The terms sound similar to the Intel deal announced last week, i.e. Atheros will take a "multi-year license" to WiLAN’s patent portfolio and make a "series of payments" to WiLAN.

There may be more announcements to come since Jim Skippen, Wi-LAN Chairman & CEO said "meaningful discussions are continuing with a number of parties in our Texas litigations and WiLAN is hopeful that it will reach additional settlements".
