In the just-released 2010 report that IEEE does on ranking overall ‘patent power’, Microvision ranks #1 for U.S. companies in the top 20 electronics companies, ahead of Apple and Xerox (the only other two U.S. companies ranked in the top 20). Overall, Microvision ranks #13 worldwide, up from 17th place in 2009.  Great job by the Microvison patent and technology teams! See http://spectrum.ieee.org/static/patentpower2010  for the  report, done in several categories.

In this evaluation, the Adjusted Pipeline Impact (API) score indicates how frequently a company’s patents from the previous five years were cited by other patents, adjusting for self-citation.  Microvision scored 1st in API out of the Top 20 electronics companies.
