Item 8.01 Other Events.

As described in Part I, Item 3. Legal Proceedings in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of Conexant Systems, Inc. (the "Company") for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2005 and in Part II, Item 1. Legal Proceedings in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of the Company for the quarter ended December 31, 2005, the Company’s Conexant, Inc. subsidiary has been involved in a dispute with Texas Instruments, Inc., Stanford University and its Board of Trustees, and Stanford University OTL, LLC (collectively, the Defendants) over a group of patents (and related foreign patents) that Texas Instruments alleges are essential to certain industry standards for implementing ADSL technology. On June 12, 2003, Conexant, Inc. filed a complaint against the Defendants in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. The complaint asserts, among other things, that the Defendants have violated the antitrust laws by creating an illegal patent pool, by manipulating the patent process and by abusing the process for setting industry standards related to ADSL technology. The complaint also asserts that the Defendants’ patents relating to ADSL are unenforceable, invalid and/or not infringed by Conexant, Inc. products. Conexant, Inc. is seeking, among other things, (i) a finding that the Defendants have violated the federal antitrust laws and treble damages based upon such a finding, (ii) an injunction prohibiting the Defendants from engaging in anticompetitive practices, (iii) a declaratory judgment that the claims of the Defendants’ ADSL patents are invalid, unenforceable, void, and/or not infringed by Conexant, Inc. and (iv) an injunction prohibiting the Defendants from pursuing patent litigation against Conexant, Inc. and its customers. On August 11, 2003 and September 9, 2003, the Defendants answered the complaint, denied Conexant, Inc.’s claims and filed counterclaims alleging that Conexant, Inc. has infringed certain of their ADSL patents. In addition to other relief, the Defendants are seeking to collect damages for alleged past infringement and to enjoin Conexant, Inc. from continuing to use the Defendants’ ADSL patents. The case has been bifurcated into a patent phase and an antitrust phase, with the patent phase being tried first. Trial on the patent phase commenced on January 4, 2006.

On February 6, 2006, the Company announced that a jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey had reached a verdict on the patent infringement counterclaims filed by the Defendants. A copy of the Company's press release dated February 6, 2006 reporting on the verdict is filed herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
